Depends: You need to check if insurance covers -diagnostic testing only -diagnostic and treatment treatment can also include iuis only- ivf does it include medications? Some will give a life time benefit, but be careful how you and your doctor will spend it...Don't use it all up on diagnostic testing. The are also programs (shared risk) where if you don't take home a baby, you will get your $$ back!
