Clomid (clomiphene): - Clomid (clomiphene) is a fertility med, specifically an ovualtioin induction agent - clomid, (clomiphene) if not covered by insurance, costs much, much less than the meds (gonadotropins) used for ivf - Clomid (clomiphene) may be prescribed by md, but whether insurance/prescription plan covers it depends on the individual prescription plan/program. Even if have to pay out-of-pocket, Clomid (clomiphene) is generally inexpensive.
