The extent of coverage, benefits, referral and authorization process vary from policy to policy. It is important that you understand what is covered before you begin treatment, or what the necessary requirements are to get the maximum reimbursement. The finance department can provide some general guidelines on most common policies within each plan. Some plans require referrals or authorizations. We encourage all patients to check the infertility benefits under their specific plan. Our participation with their insurance does not guarantee coverage for our service.
Non Participating Insurances
Most Point of Service plans allow you the flexibility to choose at the “point of service” to seek medical care out-of-network. If you have out-of-network benefits, please see below.
- Confirm that your plan has both out-of-network and infertility benefits.
- Payment is required at the time of service and prior to the start of any treatment cycle. Please call your RMA of Texas Billing Coordinator to discuss financial payment options: credit card, check, cash, wire transfers, or loan programs.
- RMA of Texas will provide you with a statement to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
- Depending on your plan, you will receive the percentage reimbursement of charges.
The following is an example of an Out-of-Network Plan. Please note this is only an example; for specific information regarding your plan, please review your out of network coverage with your insurance carrier. You may speak with our Finance Department to review specific dollar amounts.
|Health Options In Network||PPO Plans Out of Network|
|Calendar Year Deductible||None||$250.00 amount per individual $500.00 amount per family|
|Calendar Year Out of Pocket Maximum||Dollar Amount Deductible Per Individual||$250.00 deductible 80% of Reasonable and Customary Charges* up to $2,000.00 Out Of Pocket, then 100% for the remainder of the calendar year|
|Outpatient Doctor Visit||100% After $10 copay||80% of reasonable charges after deductible|
Using the above example and applying to a typical IVF cycle, the following is an approximate cost:
|Estimated Cost for IVF Cycle||$8,750 (1)|
|LESS: Est. Deductible||$250.00|
|Estimated insurance reimbursement to you for a typical IVF Cycle|
Your insurance company determines reasonable and customary charges. For better reimbursement, you can submit a pre-determination letter that includes the breakdown of fees and CPT codes to your carrier. (1) Estimated IVF Cycle cost does not include Embryo Storage, PGD, Medications, or services rendered prior to the start of your IVF cycle or after the first pregnancy test.
