As far as I remember it wasn't very expensive, but whether your insurance covers it or not no one can tell you. You will have to call them and ask. Everyone's plan is different, even those under the same company.

Unsure, but sorry for asking...but what's clomid? I hear a lot about it.

Im on the medical card and it doesnt cover compounds. Like mine was the suppository and it wasnt covered. It cost me 45.00 about every two weeks, I was taking them 2x a day.

Hmmm, maybe I was wrong on the price. I just googled it and it looks like it about $60-$80 for a month's worth. :shock: But I'm guessing your copay would be lower if it is covered.

some covers it you can call your pharmacy. Our insurance covers it but if yours doesn't you can get the generic version at Target for 10.00. I was waiting on approval so i went ahead and let target process it without insurance and it didn't cost but the 10.00.

I have Cigna and my plan doesnt cover it. But they did cover Femara (and Femara worked for me when Clomid didnt).

I believe you are talking about progesterone and not clomid (you only take clomid for about 5 day)

yeah it can add up but walmart and target have that generic plan you can sign up for that makes it around 10 bucks and they don't file your insurance :)

they are both fertility aids Femera tends to have less negative side effects it was going to be our second choice if 3 rounds of clomid didn't work.

With my insurance it was covered and it only cost me $4. It's worth it! I got pregnant on it.

My insurance didn't cover it. It was was $9 for 50mg for 5 days. Then when I moved up to 100mg, it was $18 for 5 days. I got mine at Walmart.

I liked Femara much better. Clomid gave me awful cysts (which I was already susceptible to, b/c I had had them before) which required surgery because the cyst got so big they thought it might collapse my ovary. :shock: Femara seemed to make me a lot less hormonal than Clomid. I got pregnant on Femera with an IUI and hcg shot.
