Pea on new fertility insurance offered by Golden Company: “It gives us another 20K lifetime, I think, or close to that?”
Nice fertility benefit company rep on phone this morning: “You get 3 bundles per lifetime. Full IVF counts as one bundle. FETs count as a sixth of a bundle. An embryo banking cycle counts as half of a bundle. Embryo storage for three years is included. PGS screening is automatically included.”*
Me (internally): Pea!! Good lord, man. (externally): thank you very much, that’s great information.
We won’t be able to use this unless it all comes with us to Canada (which I doubt since health care is handled so differently here). I do think it means we should look into the Golden Company coverage in Canada since I’ve been assuming it won’t really exist, and now I think otherwise.
So our FET in April will be free. I’m still sure this isn’t a great idea given all the other nonsense in my life, but I’m also still sure that there is no time like the present to have a baby if I want all of my family to meet one.
* We should all get jobs at Golden Company. I’m just saying. My cushy professor gig gives me $3K in fertility drug coverage, and that’s it.
