  1. Hy, if most American don't understand insurance, imagine not american... :-) Thanks a lot for useful information, I want to realize just a idea of fees. The insurance plan is the follow: http://tinyurl.com/yd9rwu6z Sems that change something, also is allowed to use a non partecipant provider/medic. For example for hospital we will pay 20% of fee. Maybe is better. But is better to use a partecipant network provider. And for this our GC is very collaborative because will search a OB and hospital on the network before. The agency tell to us that the premium is due for all pregnancy and not for all year. I asked for confirmation, but it's true or false? It's very a nightmare sometime :-) Jul
  2. Hy beachalice, thanks for the reply. In the fact for me is very difficult to understand how is working the insurance in USA because where I live the medical bills are free of charge when you go in hospital. Now I asked to my agency more information, expecially for co-pay and co-insurance specially in case of delivery by c-section. Also to be sure if the insurance covering in case of surrogacy. Maybe we will choice the NewLife insurance (despite of ArtRisk that is only a broker). Wait Tracy for more information. And now we wait on 20 November to know if there is a hearthbeat. Thanks Jul
  3. Hello all, in waiting for HB on next November 20, we are just to choice a insurance plan for us GC while the enrollement is opened (at this time our GC had a Kaiser Permanente insurance, but because in California Kaiser is not very good for surrogacy we must to change), and a new born insurance for the baby (we are international parent coming from Europe). Our agency proposed to us (for GC) a BluShields, in particular the "Gold 80 PPO". The main benefit is: - about $526 monthly premium, no deductible and out of pocket of 6,000$. exception listed in notes (I don't find for example for a C-Section, beacuse out GC had over the past two pregnancy both with C-Sec). Other question is for NewBorn insurance (we are not american citizen so after birth every fee and cost is under our responsibility). We surfed on the internet and we found essentially two: - newLife insurance (have a deductible to $12500, cover up to $100.000) - ArtRisk for NewBorn The first is a insurance, the second one is a coordination provider negotiation. Please could you give us some help to see if the option for GC is ok? We don't know where to start, we don't know how many visits or exams are needed on average during the pregnancy, if there are some exams that are mandatory or not, and so on. Please, every information is important to us Warmly, Jul
  4. Exam and report

    Hy All, we had a U/S last Tuesday and was positive. We tramsferred two enbvryous and the doctor see only one sac. Unfortunatly the doctor doesn't see the HB. For this check was planned another U/S next 20 Nov. We are very very very hapy and the surrogate too. We are on path.
  5. Exam and report

    Thanks you so much. Our MS it's very collaborative and like that us we want to be involved in all aspect of this journey. So her husband will take some photo and video before the report, waiting to have access in medical records.
  6. Exam and report

    Sure. With our surrogate we have a beautiful relationship and she appreciates that we, though far away, want to be involved throughout the journey. Of course, technology helps us with this, with Skype or the simple video or photo makes us look much near. But we would not want to invade a territory of privacy. We will ask you soon, and also our contact with the clinic that follows us if you can meet our requests. Who ask for HIPAA?
  7. Exam and report

    Hy, I'm a IP and next 6 Nov our MS (California) will be a first ultrasound for checing if all is going good with pregnancy. I will ask to doctors, and also MS, to have and send to us all records (and possibility to have a photo) of that U/S. Have you sound outthere if there is some impediments about this request?

  12. Past surrogate

    Hy Lisa, Welcome here. I'm living in Italy also (where surrogacy id forbidden) and I'm a IIP. Now we have had transferred two embriuos to our MS and we waiting for the first blood test.
  13. Transfer and Waiting

    Hy All, after about 6 months between we choice donor egg and I came on US for donor my sperm we transferred two embryous last Tuesday. Now waiting the first test this Wednesday... In the middle last 10 days was a big fire in northern California and our clinic are in the center of Santa Rosa County and we had some apprehension about the transfer and especially for the MS that drove on place where was a fire. Now just keep waiting the first step (the embriuous was two blasto in 6 day after fertilization). Keep your fingers crossed for us.
  14. When To Start The Process?

    Thanks you so much.
  15. When To Start The Process?

    Hy what I recommend, as has already been said, is to go immediately with the research of the egg donor and freeze embryos. It is an easy process downhill and does not take into account the many variables in surrogacy. The stipulation of the contract with the surrogate mother takes from two months to four months and not forgetting that pregnancy always takes 9 months. I believe it is necessary first to begin and finish fertilization, then start researching and defining the surrogate mother. For example: We started in January 2017, in mid-February we signed the contract with the agency for the egg donor. In March we signed for the surrogate mother. In June there was fertilization and confirmation of the surrogate mother after medical examinations. The contract was started in mid-June and signed at the beginning of September. The transfer is scheduled for mid-October 2017.
