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!
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.
