Many women who have had a tubal ligation want to have it reversed so they can have children again. Women in this situation face two options: tubal reversal surgery or in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
Patients often wonder if Medicaid covers either procedure. Unfortunately, neither procedure is covered by Medicaid. Because a woman previously decided to have her “tubes tied”, Medicaid treats tubal reversal surgery as an elective surgery, and therefore doesn’t cover the cost. IVF is also considered an elective procedure for women who have had tubal ligations, and therefore is not covered, either.
The Good News
The good news is that tubal reversal surgery is a one-time cost, making it much more affordable than IVF.
Tubal reversal surgery with Dr. Morice is only $5,250 and includes all pre- and post-operative care, anesthesia, and surgical suite fees. Dr. Morice uses state-of-the-art microsurgical techniques, which requires no overnight stay in the hospital. The fee is a one-time all-inclusive fee with no hidden add-ons, and the procedure will likely allow you to naturally conceive a child as long as your body lets you.

What about IVF?
If you are deciding between tubal ligation reversal and IVF treatments, tubal reversal has a much lower cost. While tubal reversal surgery is just a one-time fee of $5,250, IVF treatments average $12,000 per attempt. If you don’t conceive quickly, you can imagine how expensive IVF can be!
Tubal reversal is much more affordable than IVF, but $5,250 can still be a large amount to come up with right away. With the right plan, however, it’s easy to save for it. For more on how to save and pay for your tubal reversal surgery, read our blog post on financing your tubal ligation.
