Healthcare has become one of India’s largest sectors – both in terms of revenue and employment. Healthcare comprises hospitals, medical devices, clinical trials, outsourcing, telemedicine, medical tourism, health insurance and medical equipment. The Indian healthcare sector is growing at a brisk pace due to its strengthening coverage, services and increasing expenditure by public as well private players.
Among other healthcare divisions infertility and IVF division in India has attracted a number of patients from within and abroad due to the growing private sector in Infertility.
According to Dr Nabaneeta Padhy ,Medical Director of Femelife Fertility “The costs of fertility treatment will depend on individual needs. Treatment options range from intrauterine insemination (IUI), which is the least expensive, to in vitro fertilisation (IVF) with donor egg, which is the most expensive. Often there are less expensive options than IVF that may work . The only way to find out how much treatment will cost is to set up an initial consultation.”
The various services provided at IVF clinics in India are IUI,IVF,ICSI,Laser Assisted Hatching, Cryopreservation, Donor Program, Pre Genetic Diagnosis,Blastocyst Culture and Transfer, Sonography, Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy, Karyotyping and Chromosomal analysis etc.
Cost of IVF treatment in India is expensive but customers of infertility treatment always look for cheaper treatment protocols with high IVF success. Wide network of IVF clinics in India makes IVF treatment easily accessible for patients from all regions of the world. Fertility packages are designed by several IVF Centres to meet the varying needs of patients. Many centres charge for each service individually, and these pays can significantly increase the total IVF cycle costs paid by the patient. Some IVF hospitals like Femelife Fertility prefer discounted fees, which are designed as a single price that is paid prior to starting of IVF cycle.
