DH did not have medical insurance when we had his done, and the self pay rate was only $40 for a lab at the hospital, not Quest but I think it was LabCorp.
I am sure it depends on the office that you go to.. The one that my doctor is sending my hubby to is 113.00 and insurance will not cover the charges.
I think it may also depend on your insurance and the TYPE of semen analysis you are doing.
I have Kaiser insurance and there is no charge for the WHO criteria. Kaiser will not do the Kruger strict test so I had to pay $140 for it elsewhere. I have heard that the Kruger test costs anywhere between $130 to $230 ... I am no expert though!
It wasn't covered by my hubby's insurance & the Cleveland Clinic charged us $561! We argued with billing & they wouldn't budge.
DH has done 2 SAs, each at a different local fertility clinic.
SA #1 was $100 and covered by our insurance. SA#2 was $125 and also covered by our insurance. Both were kruger criteria.
Our insurance covers testing to determine infertility, but no fertility treatments.
$100 at my clinic and it was not covered by my insurance, which covers absolutely nothing for IF.
