From our Conception Connections Blog:
Insurance and Surrogacy

Over 90 percent of our surrogates’ pregnancies are not covered by their own health plans as insurers devise new ways to limit their exposure.
ARR asks all prospective surrogates to bring their policies to us. We, along with a lawyer, carefully read through the insurance plans and identify any questionable exclusions (look for a section called reproduction or maternity). We then bring them to the attention of the potential surrogate. Being prepared on this front will help the surrogate feel more comfortable with the entire process.
For intended parents, finding a surrogate who already carries health insurance that does not exclude surrogacy is ideal. But this is the exception, not the rule. Today, specialized maternity insurance can cost intended parents as much as $35,000 for a multiple pregnancy.
