Does insurance typically cover a semen analysis or not? If not, how much does it cost? THANKS!

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!

DH: low count and motility

IUI #2 on January 31, 2011 ... 9 million sperm pre-wash, 4.3 million post-wash, only 26% progressive motility = BFN
IUI #3 on March 3rd and 4th ... Tamoxifen CD 3-7 ... CD11 ultrasound
showed 1 follicle @ 14 mm, and 1 follicle at 11mm. CD 14 ultrasound
showed 1 follicle @ 25.5 mm; HCG shot CD14 with IUI 12 hours later (2.6
million post-wash, 27% progressive motility), another IUI 36 hours later
(2 million sperm post-wash, only 16% progressive motility) = BFN
Taking a break until Fall 2011 and will consider IVF.
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.
TTC #1 since 11/09, MFI 9/2010
$100 at my clinic and it was not covered by my insurance, which covers absolutely nothing for IF.
