How Much Does It Cost?

Some questions, some answers

How much does case management cost?

$11,500 which covers the time from match to embryo transfer, with an option to keep Nodal's services post-transfer for an additional fee.

If you bring a surrogate match outside of Nodal's platform, there is an additional screening fee of $2,500 for our team to thoroughly verify and review her medical records.

How does this differ from full case management?

Oftentimes, the most difficult part of a journey is between the match and transfer, where there are plenty of medical tests, travel requirements, additional appointments, and legal aspects that need coordination. Nodal's case management handles those parts of a journey and concludes with the embryo transfer. Our pricing is so competitive because we are not offering full case management.

Our pricing is so competitive because this is not full case management. When you sign up for full case management with an agency, that typically includes case management of the entire journey up until the birth of the baby. In some cases it will also include a match.

Does the fee include the cost of a match?

No, the case management fee is not inclusive of a match. You may bring your own matched surrogate, or work with us through our Nodal Match platform and the fee to match is $11,500.

If you bring your own matched surrogate, there is a screening fee of $2,500.

What does it include?

When during my journey should I sign up for Nodal Case Management?

We recommend signing up with us as soon as your match is finalized.

In some cases, we recommend waiting until your fertility clinic accepts your surrogate at medical clearance. From there, Nodal can handle the rest of the details.

Does the fee include insurance review?

Insurance review is included with Nodal Case Management. Our Nodal team will connect you with an insurance professional so you have full visibility into the review. We'll organize this detailed part of the journey. No additional fees will be incurred.

What about legal costs?

Our Goal is Simple

We want to make surrogacy an attainable option for more intended parents, without asking surrogates to do this invaluable work for less compensation. Additionally, we believe that hidden or opaque costs are unacceptable, and as such, we make sure intended parents know exactly what this process is likely to cost them from the beginning.
