The fees for surrogacy is one of the first questions we were asked by intended parents interested in growing their family via surrogacy. Understanding what goes into the surrogacy process helps intended parents see the need for professionals and certain surrogacy expenses.
What are the surrogacy fees consisted of?
A Surrogacy journey is very delicate; besides the surrogate herself, many professionals were involved in it, including knowledge of fertility medical field, surrogacy laws, insurance, and financial management of surrogacy journey. Intended parents are paying for the professionals’ experiences as a reliable team to assist their journey of parenthood.
If you work with a surrogacy agency, you will have to pay a surrogacy professionals fee to the agency. The agency fee covers many aspects of your surrogacy journey, including:
Seeking, Screening and Matching with your Surrogate and Egg Donor
Coordinate your entire journey, from beginning to end
Support your journey through
Legal contract and Parental Right
Escrow and fund management
Insurance and Medical bills management
Some experienced agencies have a network of IVF physicians, also provide IVF concierge services for intended parents. Being passion and love, a few agencies such as ACRC, assist the intended parents on baby’s birth certificate and other necessary legal documents after the baby is born, sending wishes when baby’s birthday as well.
Why work with an agency instead of an independent journey?
Intended Parents who wish to reduce the cost of surrogacy may choose an independent surrogacy journey. In which case, intended parents have to be responsible for finding their surrogate, managing the surrogacy journey, coordinating with IVF clinics, local monitoring clinics, and delivery hospitals, finding their attorneys to handle legal contracts and parental rights as well.
An experienced surrogacy agency such as ACRC will seek an ideal surrogate and egg donor and screen them based on ASRM guidelines, ensure they fit our strict standards as well. You do not have to be an expert. We coordinate with medical providers, surrogates and egg donors, surrogacy law attorneys, fund managers, and insurance agents. We manage the pregnancy and prepare you for the birth. Your money will be well distributed. We ensure your surrogate and your medical bills are getting paid. You know where your money is going clearly.
Coordinating a surrogacy journey and all the parties being involved can be very time consuming. An independent journey may appear to save your money in the short term, but can be much more expensive if some issues happened, such as a failed transfer, a miscarriage, or complications during the journey. An experienced agency can protect intended parents from the unexpected financial risks.
