Can you break down pricing?
Match deposit: $500
Cofertility’s Coordination Fee: $6,500
The Cofertility Coordination Fee covers the cost of recruiting and pre-qualifying eligible donors, facilitating a mutual match between you and the donor, overseeing the administrative process, and coordinating the donor’s screening, egg retrieval procedure, and storage.
After you place a hold on a match, we'll reach out to the donor to confirm her interest and availability. Once she agrees, you'll have five days to sign your Family by Co agreement. The Cofertility Coordination fee is due within seven days of signing your agreement.
Administrative expenses: $5,700*
Administrative expenses are incurred by engaging vendors and professional services as part of the egg donation journey. These expenses are paid to third party service providers through an escrow account that will be set up after your agreement is signed. Any money left in escrow at the end of your journey will be returned to you. These expenses includes:
- Donor’s AMH Test (completed in order to become active on the platform)
- Legal fees for both you and the donor to create a legally-binding donation agreement. We ensure both parties have access to independent legal counsel that is familiar with our programs Donor’s background check run by a third party
- Donor’s cycle complication insurance
- Donor’s care package 🤍
- Donor’s long-term storage and shipping costs for her portion of the eggs
- Escrow management fee
*Costs based on standard rates from Cofertility’s recommended service providers
Medical expenses are often paid directly to your clinic and pharmacy but may be paid through escrow in certain cases. These expenses vary by clinic and geography.
So you know what to expect, these expenses will include:
- Donor’s screening and FDA labs
- Donor’s genetic testing and consultation
- Donor’s psychological evaluation
- Egg retrieval cycle fee
- Embryo creation and testing
If your donor needs to travel to the screening and/or retrieval, you'll be responsible for covering those expenses.
What will pricing look like in 2024?
Cofertility will be raising our Coordination Fee from $7,000 to $8,000 for all matches made on or after January 1, 2024. Over the past year, we have seen a substantial rise in expenses associated with various aspects of our operations. Specifically, costs related to recruiting and reaching potential donors, match facilitation, coordination processes, and other essential components of our services have increased significantly. Our commitment to delivering the highest level of personalized care for intended parents remains our top priority, and this fee adjustment is essential to ensuring that we can continue to provide you with the support and resources needed.
If you place a match before 12 AM EST on January 1, 2024, you will lock in our current pricing. Additionally, any intended parent that matched prior to 12 AM EST on January 1, 2024 will also lock in our 2023 pricing if they decide to pursue a second cycle with that same donor or any additional donor. For initial matches made on or after January 1, 2024, the Coordination Fee associated with a second match with the same donor will change from $3,500 to $4,000 and the Coordination Fee associated with a second match with a new donor will change from $7,000 to $8,000.
If you’ve been considering moving forward with Cofertility, now is the time to do so. Visit our platform to find your match; we add new donors every week.
How does donor travel work?
If you match with a donor that is out of state, we’ll work with all parties to determine the best places to conduct her testing, monitoring, and retrieval in order to minimize long-distance travel. If you choose to work with a clinic that’s not local to the donor, you are responsible for covering her travel expenses, including airfare, hotels, and meals for her and a companion.
What about donor compensation?
One thing that’s not here that you’ll see with other egg donation companies? Donor compensation. Our unique model allows donors to freeze their eggs for free when they donate half of the eggs retrieved to your family. There is no cash compensation, eliminating a considerable expense often associated with donor egg IVF. Plus, our fee is the same regardless of the donor who you match with. You’ll never pay extra based on the donor’s education, heritage, or any other factors.
Do you offer any guarantees?
Our one-time Cofertility Coordination Fee comes with a baby guarantee. While cycle administrative and medical fees are non-refundable once incurred, if anything gets in the way of you bringing home your baby, we’ll re-match you with another donor at no additional Cofertility Coordination fee. What does that mean? If a donor doesn’t pass screening, we’ll help you match again. If a cycle leads to no blastocysts, we’ll match you again. If none of the blastocysts turn into a pregnancy, we’ll match you again. You’ll be responsible for other costs associated with the new match, but you won’t be responsible for the Cofertility Coordination Fee. Visit our website for more information about Cofertility’s Baby Guarantee.
What if I want to do two cycles?
If you choose to do a second cycle with the same donor, the estimated cost is $4,400 plus any expenses associated with the donor’s cycle and travel.
These costs include:
- Reduced Cofertility Coordination Fee: $3,500
- Reduced admin expenses: $900
- Medical expenses: varies by clinic
The reduced costs reflect the fact that her screening will have already been completed.
