Talking about finances is a sensitive subject, and rather wait for you to bring up the subject of egg donor compensation and cycle-related costs, we’ve provided you a detailed outline of the monetary obligations born by your hopeful parents throughout the duration of your egg donation cycle.
Egg Donor Compensation
Egg donors who donate through Creating New Generations receive compensation of $8,000-15,000+, and we hear time and again how this compensation helps provide for unique, often otherwise unattainable opportunities in an egg donor’s life, including:
♦ Pursuing one’s educational dreams
♦ Beginning a bucket list travel adventure
♦ Placing a down payment on a home
♦ Saving compensation monies for investment purposes
♦ Beginning a new business venture
In addition to generous egg donor compensation, your recipient parents will also cover all related travel costs for the egg donation cycle, if the treating physician is not located nearby. Travel may include airfare/train, hotel accommodations, a daily meal stipend, and a daily ground transportation stipend. At egg retrieval, travel companion expenses (airfare) are also included.
During the egg donation cycle, you will undergo medical screening. Your recipient parents will cover the cost of all your medical expenses, including but not limited to your laboratory testing costs, clinic appointments, and medication, by paying costs directly through their fertility center, or through a management account set up in advance with Creating New Generations. In addition, your recipient parents will cover the cost of your medical insurance policy, thus ensuring coverage in the event of any complications.
You and your recipient parents will enter into an egg donor-intended parent legal agreement, a binding agreement outlines carefully parental rights of the eggs after egg retrieval, as well as compensation and covered travel costs. Your recipient couple will cover the cost of this agreement.
Overall, egg donation makes parenthood a possibility for hopeful parents and couples otherwise unable to get pregnant on their own, and in turn, the egg donor compensation you’re provided for your generous gift may open up opportunities that might not otherwise be attainable. We understand the significant commitment egg donation entails, and we value the time and responsibility our egg donors dedicate to their responsibilities. It is our goal to ensure a positive experience from a physical an emotional perspective, but also from a financial perspective, too.
