Rachel, you are so right! I seriously count my blessings every single time I walk into that clinic knowing that we are getting a lot of help from my insurance company. My employer has really hooked us up when it comes to the fertility "riders" on our insurance policy. I honestly think that if more women talked to their HR representatives at their companies it could help. One of our HR people told me just yesterday that she is amazed that how many women at our company have used this benefit, so I assume they continue the benefit for those that need it (which is a very nice thing to do!). 2 1/2 years ago when I had major issues with my insurance company trying to deny me payment of IUI's, I fought them, I raised a stink, I threw a fit!!! What's the saying? Quiet women rarely make history? Something like that.... LOL!! I think because of the serious issues I had, my HR dept. looked into the benefit further, did their research, and hooked us up! All it takes is a discussion and a "pretty please"? All they can do is say no.

Some day I hope to help a woman who needs donated fertility drugs. If I get pg on this IVF cycle, we will have about 2 cycles of meds left to donate. I get about $5,000 worth of drugs for $150 and I really would like to help somebody less fortunate out.
