Infertility is heartbreaking for individuals and couples who want children but are unable to have them. Even more heartbreaking, the responsibility for infertility financing is almost always left to the infertile individual or couple because insurance usually does not cover the cost of infertility treatments. For such couples, LoanNow may provide a resource for infertility financing, or cover adoption costs if the individual or couple eventually decide to go that route.
With in vitro fertilization, the sperm of the donor father, often the husband of a heterosexual couple, is combined with the eggs of the donor mother. Donor eggs often come from the woman who wishes to bear the child, but in the case of older mothers donor eggs are often harvested from a younger woman. Multiple fertilized embryos are implanted in the womb of the mother or a surrogate, with the hopes that at least one will develop to become a healthy full-term baby.
In vitro fertilization is far from a guaranteed means of conception; the process is successful less than 50 percent of the time even under optimal conditions, when both parents are healthy and the mother is under the age of 35. As a result, many practitioners recommend multiple in vitro fertilization sessions. Because of the complex procedure involved and the need for multiple sessions, infertility financing for in vitro fertilization can be extremely expensive.
Adoption Tax Credit
Many individuals and couples for whom infertility financing is too expensive or for whom infertility treatments have been unsuccessful turn to adoption to add to their families. The IRS allows adoptive parents to claim extensive credits for adoption related costs, including attorney’s fees and travel costs if a child is adopted from overseas. Although the experience of adopting a child can be emotionally rewarding, the process of adoption can be extremely costly, even with tax breaks.
