Finances

Policy

At IVF Athens Center we are committed to offer excellent quality personalized patient-centered medical and biological services in a stress free environment. This has to do also with finances.

Personalized care leads to a variation of costs depending on the individual’s treatment plan. In our philosophy there is a fixed cost including everything needed for a fertility treatment with the exception of medication. In order to achieve minimized cost of treatment while offering excellent level of care we offer a series of Fertility Therapy Programs.

IVF medication costs are not included in any IVF cycle costs and can vary, depending on the medication dosage your doctor prescribes for you. In any case be sure that we shall assist you in order to find the best cost effective way to purchase your medication needed.

Payment Requirements

Our Chief Listening Officer is committed to give a financial quote based on the medical and biological team’s instruction prior to treatment. The personalized quote will include all necessary information in details regarding treatment, medication and cryopreserving costs in order to allow you to structure your preferences and arrange your finances.

Payment Schedule

Payment in full is due before commencing any IVF cycle. Patients are required to make a 50% deposit on the total cost of their cycle no later than 3 weeks prior to their own regulation (i.e. start of medication). The final 50% payment for treatment is due prior to egg collection. For patients flying to Athens, this final payment should be made the first day you visit IVF Athens Center for scan prior to egg collection. Unpaid costs may result in treatment delay.

Payment options

IVF Athens Center accepts cash, credit and debit cards, bank drafts. No personal cheques accepted and no finance or loan facilities to fund treatment are offered.

Cancellation Policy

Sometimes when IVF cycles may need to be cancelled, costs need to be recovered. Refunds could reflect the duration completed by patients in their cycle.

Committed cycles cancelled prior to or during down regulation

Once a patient commits to an IVF cycle we at IVF Athens Center reserve resources and organize anything in order to offer a quality-driven, patient-centered, integrated stress free IVF treatment. If by any reason a cycle is cancelled after a written commitment has been given to proceed, it will be billed a coordination fee which is to be settled immediately on cancellation and will be included in our quote.

Refund for unsuccessful ovarian stimulation or no egg retrieval

In case a medical procedure needs to be cancelled by our medical team as a result of failure of the female patient’s ovaries to stimulate, the patient will be issued a credit note for the original treatment cost minus any medication used up to that point and a coordination fee which is mentioned in our quote.

Refund for no embryo transfer

In case of a no embryo transfer and as payment has been settled by the patient already, a refund shall be issued for this procedure minus the medication cost used to this point.

Elective freeze all

Should the medical team recommend that all embryos are frozen for transfer at a later date, there will be no charge for the first transfer of frozen embryos. All medication required for this future transfer will be additional.

Cancelled egg donor cycle fee

The organization of an egg donor cycle demands a huge amount of coordination and medical and biological management. In case of an unexpected cycle cancellation prior to the completion of treatment, all fees associated with the cancellation have to be billed and will be included in our quote.

Cryopreservation

There is an annual fee for the cryopreservation of any genetical material retrieved. The duration and the annual fee will be separate billed and managed and will be included in our quote.
