What Makes IARC Unique?
All-Inclusive Agency Fee that includes many services you must hire third parties to perform when working with other agencies, including financial management, medical insurance identification and obtainment, legal guidance, and emotional support to all parties throughout the process.
No Added Fees under any circumstance. Our agency fee is a flat fee that provides you with our services and support until you reach success and return home with your baby. This includes unlimited matching with successive surrogates, starting a new pregnancy in the event of a pregnancy loss, or other rare outcomes requiring you to repeat steps in the program. Our fee is also a pay as you go model paid in three separate installments as your program becomes successful, with the last installment not due or payable UNLESS AND UNTIL you reach the end of the first trimester of pregnancy.
Fully Transparent Program Cost starting with a comprehensive IARC Cost Estimate that includes ALL anticipated fees and expenses you will incur in the U.S. during your program and continuing with personalized budget outlooks upon request as we help you select a fertility clinic, egg donor, and surrogate so you may clearly determine how those choices are impacting your program cost and help you stay on budget.
