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.

As of 11/29/10 We are both excited and happy to start this journey!!!  2/7/11 Male fertility diagnosed

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!  Big Smile

TTC#1 since May 2008 ... CELEBRATING THREE YEARS OF INFERTILITY!! 

My chart:  http://www.tcoyf.com/members/mamawannabe/charts/21.aspx

DH & I have been married since Nov. 2004

Me:  I've got 3 gorgeous polyps ... removed Nov. 2010

DH:  low count and motility

IUI #1 on May 19, 2010 = BFN

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.

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. 

Good luck!!

$100 at my clinic and it  was not covered by my insurance, which covers absolutely nothing for IF.
