An Analysis of the Costs of Infertility Treatment
Cooper, Glinda S.
American Journal of Public Health. 1986 Aug; 76(8): 1018-1019.
The author contends that a systematic attempt to assess the costs of various solutions to infertility is warranted by the growing magnitude of the infertility problem, recent advances in reproductive technologies, growing professional and public interest, and the impact of fertility treatment on health care costs. He demonstrates the feasibility and value of such a study by a simplified analysis of the services provided by a Canadian clinic to 597 infertile couples. The average cost of diagnosis and treatment per successful pregnancy was $10,700. By contrast, adoption costs generally range from $3,000 to $10,000, and the cost of a surrogate mother arrangement is about $20,000. (KIE abstract)
