The University of Michigan's Center for Reproductive Medicine works with most major insurance carriers. We strongly encourage you to contact your insurance provider to determine if CRM participates with your plan and to verify you have infertility testing and treatment coverage. Insurance benefits vary with each individual policy and insurance carrier. In Michigan, it is up to each individual employer to purchase a Rider for fertility diagnosis and treatment from their health plans. Fertility coverage can vary from none to diagnostic fertility testing, to full coverage for fertility treatments and procedures. If you are covered by a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or a Point of Service Plan (POS), please make sure you contact your Primary Care Physician (PCP) for an insurance referral prior to your initial consultation and for any further visits with our physicians. Most insurance companies require prior authorization for Intra-uterine Insemination (IUI) and In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), as well as some diagnostic procedures. A prior authorization is not a guarantee of benefits or payment. The terms of the member's plan control the available benefits. Our financial counselor will request these authorizations as diagnostic tests and procedures are scheduled to work with you to minimize your financial burden.
We strongly encourage all patients to call your insurance provider to verify if you have infertility testing and treatment coverage, this number can be supplied on the back of your card. When calling your insurance company, ask if the codes listed below that pertain to your plan are considered as a covered benefit under your policy to give you a better understanding as to what will be covered.
University of Michigan insurance policies: Be aware CPT code 58322 is not considered a covered benefit and you may receive charges applied to multiple billing statements.

Once your treatment plan has been developed by our physicians, estimated charges can be found by selecting the links that pertain to your current/upcoming plan that will include the CPT codes you will need when you call your insurance. Please remember that this is only an estimate, and there are no set costs since treatment is individualized for every single patient. Payments for fertility services not covered by insurance are expected at the time of service or in advance. We do accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks. If you have any further financial questions after speaking with your insurance (if applicable), please send a message through your patient portal including your financial question(s) or you can call the confidential direct phone line at (734) 647-0423.
There are a few nonprofit organizations that provide financial assistance to select infertility patients. For details, including application deadlines, please visit their websites which are listed on the RESOLVEwebsite. The listing of these organizations does not mean or imply an endorsement by the University of Michigan, but as a resource for financing through other means.
Prior Voluntary Sterilization(s): Contact your insurance provider(s) to verify if services will covered if any voluntary sterilization has been performed in the past.
