Cost of Ovum Donor Program

IARC® usually charges a flat fee that covers all of the ovum donor’s expenses related to one cycle, although we will arrange other payment options, if preferred. Depending on the fertility clinic you are working with, this flat fee may already be calculated. The flat fee prevents financial surprises and allows you to budget. Please be careful. Many fertility centers may seem to have lower fees, but there are extra fees for the physicians, hospital, anesthesia, cryopreservation, and lab tests. Some of IARC®’s program options include the cryopreservation, one year’s storage, and subsequent embryo transfers of the frozen embryos. Your stored embryos can be used in the future for subsequent attempts. If you have successfully had one child but still have frozen embryos remaining, you are welcome to return to your clinic for another genetically-related child after the first birth. (There is an additional fee charged by the clinic in this case.)

Payment Schedule

Your ovum donor program fee will be based on the requirements of your fertility clinic. Our goal is to calculate a fee that is as close to the actual cost of your program as possible. If IARC has worked with your fertility clinic previously, the total fees have already been calculated.

Ovum Donor Program:

$4,000 Agency Fee + Calculated Donor Expenses

IARC® appreciates that this is a large amount of money to make available prior to starting with your donor. Please note that once you sign up for the program, we start immediately to match you with a donor of your choice. Once matched, the program progresses quickly and can usually be completed within 3 months’ time. All expenses are paid out during that time. This is why we need funds available at the commencement of the program.

Please note: Provisions can be made if the client’s medical insurance plan covers some of the expenses.

Payment Options

You may make payments to IARC® by personal check (please allow one week for bank clearance), cashier’s check (funds will be immediately available upon receipt), or wire transfer.

Please contact us for wire transfer information when you are ready to start your program.
(Please receive a written confirmation of your wire transfer from your bank and fax it to IARC®’s Accounting Department immediately whenever a wire transfer is made.)
