You can return clothes to a store, exchange a bag of milk, and return most products with a receipt. So why can’t you get your money back for a failed IUI, IVF or other fertility treatments?
You paid, you got treated and it didn’t work. You kept up your end of the bargain but you didn’t receive the goods. When signing your consent forms, you should add in a line that allows you to get your money back should you miscarry, if the treatment fails altogether, or if your baby is born downright ugly.
Money back guaranteed for all unattractive babies. Hey fertility doctor, you hand-picked our baby, so why does it have Uncle Ned’s chin and Aunt Frannie’s pear-shaped bottom?
I (your name here) give permission to have an IVF cycle completed at your fertility clinic. I will pay the amount in full upfront but require a full money back guarantee should the procedure fail or if the baby comes out looking like my great Aunt Ethel. I also request an additional payment for heartache and suffering, cancelled cycles, and all other fertility clinic screw-ups. I accept pay pal and all major credit cards.
