Molly and Stephanie talk through the cost, insurance and workplace fertility benefits, and legal concerns tied to freezing your eggs
CLEVELAND — When you’re considering freezing your eggs, there are a lot of financial, long-term and legal concerns to think about.
In third and final installment of a special series on egg freezing on my 3 Things to Know with Stephanie Haney podcast, International Fertility Law Group attorney Molly O’Brien joins me to talk through additional issues that come up, with Molly sharing her expertise as someone who practices law in this area, worked for years at an egg donor and surrogacy agency, and has frozen her own eggs.
Molly and I cover the upfront costs of egg freezing, intermediate and future expenses, and the current state of insurance coverage and workplace benefits for fertility preservation.
We also dive into property rights issues for people choosing between freezing eggs and embryos, the problem with using medical consent forms as contracts, and what you need to think about in the event you never actually end up using your frozen eggs.
Plus, I share one final update about my own egg freezing journey, why Affogato Cat Cafe is the blissful reprieve that you Need to Know in NEO, and the many reasons that “Cleveland Grl” Abbie Frank is such A Good Follow on Instagram.
