I got this from a website www.americanpregnancy.org

In Regards to Credibility:
Does the program adhere to the guidelines set forth by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM)?
Is the program a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)?
Is the IVF lab accredited by the College of American Pathologists and SART or by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations?
Are the physicians board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility?
Does the program report its results to the SART Registry and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention?
In Regards to Cost and Convenience:
What pre-cycle screening tests are required, how much do they cost, and will my insurance cover these tests?
How much does the ART procedure cost, including drugs per treatment cycle?
Do I pay in advance? How much? What are the methods of payment?
If applicable, will you submit any bills to my insurance company?
How much do I pay if my treatment cycle is canceled before egg recovery? Before embryo transfer?
What are the costs for embryo freezing, storage, and transfer?
How much work will I miss? How much will my partner miss?
Do you help arrange low-cost lodging, if needed?
In Regards to Details About the Program:
How many physicians will be involved in my care?
To what degree can my own physician participate in my care?
What types of counseling and support services are available?
Whom do I call day or night if I have a problem?
Do you freeze embryos (cryopreservation)?
Is donor sperm available in your program? Donor eggs? Donor embryos?
Do you have an age or basal FSH limit?
Do you do ICSI? If so, when? Cost?
Do you do assisted hatching? If so, when? Cost?
How many eggs/embryos are transferred?

Re: I have an IFV consultation next week at NSUH. What can I expect from this, what questions should I make sure I ask?

before starting everything i bought a book titled:

in vitro fertilization: the a.r.t. of making babies by geoffrey sher, virginia marriage davis and jean stoess

it was pretty informative and good to refer to as things were moving along. but my doctor also gave me a lot of information.

i also recommend some sort of organization system for all the paper work you will be getting. we kept a looseleaf binder with those clear plastic sheets with everything from consent forms, insurance info, test results, etc. i also had a notebook to write my questions in as they pop up, because you never remember everything when you're there at the office.

good luck!!!
