Frequently asked questions

How long can the donor remain reserved?

Donors can be reserved for two business days. If payment is not received within two business days, the donor will be released back to the database.

When are fees due?

Fees are due in two stages:
Stage 1: The $2,500 Pre-Approval Fee is due once the Intended Parent(s) are notified the donor has confirmed she is available for matching. This typically occurs within one business day of the Donor’s reservation on the database. This fee of $2,500 is non-refundable, but may apply to up to three donors.

Stage 2: Final program fees are due within two business days of receipt of final invoice. This payment includes Professional Fee, Donor Compensation, Direct Agreement and Donor Expense Account.

What if the donor does not achieve medical clearance from the clinic, or the cycle is cancelled prior to the donor's injection start date?

The Professional Fee and unused donor fees will roll over to the selection of a new donor. A full Professional Fee refund will be tendered should the Intended Parent(s) decide not to proceed with another donor through ConceiveAbilities.

Do the fees listed above include medical costs associated with IVF treatment?

The above fees apply to all costs associated with the IVF procedure—which include but are not limited to Donor’s initial screening, physical exam, ultrasounds, monitoring, medications, laboratory testing and doctor visits, are separate from the fees detailed above. Please consult with your clinic to obtain a breakdown of these costs.
