Why are the Cost Ranges so Widely?

Depending on the surrogate compensation, the state in which she lives in, the health insurance choice and other customizations, the total cost of the whole surrogacy process varies significantly. Our Magic Journeys team will always put in the maximum effort to make the surrogacy journey smooth, enjoyable and memorable for our intended parents regardless which program you are in.

Surrogate Compensation Components

There are several factors to consider when it comes to surrogate compensation. 

Employment Status: 

A working surrogate will receive an additional $6,000 in compensation compared to stay-home moms. 

Previous Experience: 

Experienced surrogates receive more compensation than first time surrogates. The increased compensation for an experienced surrogate starts at $5,000 and can increase to $30,000 or more.

Residence:  California surrogates receive $5,000 extra in addition to the other benefits listed above due to the high demand.

Health Insurance:

Surrogates need a special health insurance policy to cover maternity and delivery. The costs for these policies are at the higher end of the spectrum ranging from about $20,000 to $35,000. Some gestational surrogates may have an existing health insurance policy that also covers a surrogate pregnancy. They are very rare though the least expensive.

Do I Need to Pay All Surrogacy Costs at Once?

The magic surrogacy journey usually takes about 14-18 months, and you will not pay all costs at once. The majority of funds will be due within six months once the process starts. There will be two or three installments.

Will My Insurance Cover Surrogacy Program Costs?

Most traditional health insurance policies do not offer coverage for surrogacy; some policies may cover portions of the IVF medical process. More and more employers started to offer family creation benefits in recent years that cover a significant portion of the surrogacy process. Just give us a call, and we will help you your insurance and see if your benefits could lower your overall costs.

How Much Does It Cost to Create Embryos?

If you plan to use your own eggs, the cost ranges from $26,000 to $30,000. If you choose to use donor eggs, expect the cost to range from $50,000 to $80,000.
