Our current agency fee is $7,000 for local donor cycles and $8,000 for traveling cycles. We reduce this fee when a client also uses an APM surrogate. The agency fee is not due until a donor is selected. We do, however, require a $1,000 ‘hold fee’ when a donor is placed on hold for a family. With this hold fee, APM sends your potential egg donor’s profile, genetic questionnaire and any previous cycle records to your IVF center for review. We will also arrange for a phone conversation or Skype meeting between you and the donor. The higher end of this fee provides for your IVF center do an AMH or FSH level prior to deciding to match with the donor. In most cases, the hold fee is deducted from the full agency fee once you sign a retainer with APM and proceed with the cycle. The balance of our agency fee is paid in two installments: the first half of the agency fee is due when APM sends our retainer and it is signed by intended parents and agency; the estimate of costs for the cycle and Donor Benefits Package. The second half of the agency fee is due when the legal contract between intended parents and donor is signed.

Note: APM is not a medical facility, nor acts as a project manager for the egg donor cycle. APM is a matching service only, acting as a liaison between the donor and intended parents, the IVF center, and any other professionals involved in the donation process for the purpose of maintaining anonymity of the parties. Our agency fee does not include the fees charged by your IVF center, egg donor compensation, egg donor screening, attorney fees or psychological counseling and clearance. The cost for all professionals is the responsibility of the intended parents.
