Egg Donor Compensation
Recognizing your unique credentials, P.E.D.I. egg donors are compensated at a higher rate compared to most other egg donation agencies. First time donors are compensated for their time and inconvenience in the amount of $10,000. Repeat egg donation cycles command an additional $500 fee per cycle.
The American Society of Reproductive Medicine has issued a guideline limiting the number of egg donation cycles to six. Many, but not all, endocrinologists adhere to this guideline. Some IVF doctors, however, will recommend additional donation cycles depending upon your specific condition. Thus, your first donation cycle will command a fee of $10,000, your second successful cycle will command a fee of $10,500, and so forth.
After your initial physical evaluation confirming your eligibility to donate, you will receive a $1,000 payment when you begin the fertility medication. The balance of your fee will be paid upon completion of the egg donation cycle and retrieval procedure.
In addition to the donation fee, all of your expenses will be paid by the intended parents. Those costs include the physical evaluation, blood tests, medicine and clinic visits. Additionally, your legal fees for review of your agreement with the intended parents are paid in full. Should you need to travel to the recipient’s IVF clinic, travel costs for you and a companion are covered including hotel, airfare, meals, and transportation.
The egg donation fee you receive is considered taxable income by the Internal Revenue Service and PEDI is obligated to report this income to the IRS.
