Oh-I don't know surrogate. We're just finishing up round one of IVF and it looks like the whole entire thing-inlcuding meds is going to be 2K.  We are double insured and my other ins. picks up $100 of meds a dr. visits.

I imagine it varies state to state, but it's likely that there is less insurance coverage for surrogacy.  My sister has looked into this.  She lives in a state where her insurance would cover nearly all of the cost for IVF (less deductibles and copays, etc), but they cover almost nothing in the case of a surrogate. The surrogate's insurance would generally cover the prenatal stuff, assuming there is success with a pregnancy.

Sorry if this is not the answer you are hoping for, but I would recommend doing los of research so that you are clear on any 'catch' in the coverage.  Wishing you the best on this.

I will be the surrogate and the couple plans on getting me an insurance policy!! so basically it will be his sperm and they will have to get a donor egg!! so i guess it would not even have to be known by the insurance company that it was a surrogate pregnancy!!
