The costs of IVF can be an added cause of stress for many people who need private IVF treatment. But what if you didn’t need to worry about the financial risk of treatment failure, or paying for further cycles?

At Manchester Fertility, we understand how financial worries can affect you during treatment. In this final blog post on your health and wellbeing when undergoing IVF, we explain why in addition to fully-costed, transparent treatment plans, you’ll also find a choice of funding options when you come to us for help to have a baby.

There are funding options covering all major types of treatments and age groups at Manchester Fertility- from IVF and ICSI to IVF with donor eggs and donor sperm insemination.

All are designed to give you financial peace of mind that everything is paid for in advance, with the reassurance of fixed, discounted fees or even a refund when having treatment with us.

Your funding options are provided either independently through Access Fertility, or have been carefully developed by our consultant team to cover wider types of treatments:

Access Fertility: IVF Refund, Multicycle & Donor Eggs IVF Refund plans

We were the first IVF clinic in the UK to offer our patients discounted, fixed-fee pre-paid treatment plans. Offered through Access Fertility, you can choose from:

IVF Refund: Dependent upon your age, you can choose a three-cycle IVF plan with a refund of either 50%, 70% or 100% of plan fees if treatment doesn’t result in a live birth, or a two-cycle IVF plan that gives you a 50% refund. IVF Refund is subject to a medical review and is available if you’re aged 39 and under using your own eggs.

IVF Multi-Cycle: Available if you’re aged up to 42 and using your own eggs in treatment, Multi-Cycle gives you two cycles of treatment at a substantial discount, with no medical review required.

Donor Eggs IVF Refund: Designed to give the reassurance of a 70% refund of plan fees to those who need donor eggs, Donor Eggs IVF Refund is available to women aged up to 48.

Manchester Fertility packages
