What Costs to Expect When Undergoing IVF Treatment

IVF Cost

If you are planning to undergo IVF treatment so that you can fulfill your dream of having a baby, you obviously need to know what costs you can expect. You must empower yourself with knowledge and have a clear understanding of your financial commitment.

IVF Cost

IVF treatment is costly because the procedure requires:

  • Expertise from highly educated, trained, and experienced fertility specialists
  • Sophisticated surgical facilities and laboratories with state-of-the-art medical equipment
  • Personalized attention to ensure that patients feel safe and comfortable
  • The highest standard of quality medical care provided at an affordable cost

A successful fertility treatment clinic will be one that is very sensitive to every IVF patient’s emotional, physical, and financial stress. At Advanced Fertility Services, we understand the pressures being experienced by those who are about to make a significant financial commitment to cover the cost of IVF in order to have a baby.

Private Center = Lean Overhead Expenses


Advanced Fertility Services strives to alleviate your financial stress by offering the most affordable IVF treatment costs in New York City. Dr. Hugh D. Melnick has committed his professional career to reducing the financial burden of IVF for his patients by offering his services at a cost significantly below that of large hospital providers.

Lower IVF treatment costs have been possible because – in 1983 – Advanced Fertility Services was founded by Dr. Melnick as New York City’s first freestanding IVF clinic. As a private center, Advanced Fertility Services absorbs lower overhead expenses than those of the larger hospital programs. Unlike large hospital fertility programs, Advanced Fertility Services has been able to reduce the common overhead expenses commonly passed on to patients.
