Either Or....

Mark and I have reached a difficult point in our fertility journey. It's time for us to move on to injectibles and the costs are horrifying! While we are at a comfortable place financially, we simply do not have an extra $2000+ to spend on infertility treatments every month. Thanks goodness for insurance, right?

Not exactly.

Mark's new job has a wonderful insurance plan that does not cover one iota of fertility costs. Not a dime. That leaves us with a decision to make. Mark has free health insurance through his company, but for me it is $500 a month. Would we be horribly crazy to skip the insurance so we have that $500 to use towards medical costs...i.e treatments that are not covered by insurance?

What do you think?

That's a scary decision! But what rewards when it works out...
