To ensure intended parents receive proper coverage, Circle will help assess and defend insurance policies and cases.
We have extensive experience identifying, screening and accepting surrogates with existing maternity coverage that covers a surrogacy journey, and occasionally with dependent coverage as well. In addition, Circle has worked extensively with Lloyd’s of London to create a surrogacy-specific insurance policy that provides a high level of coverage for surrogacy journeys.
For many journeys, we see insurance costs range between $15,000 and $26,000. In our Fixed Fee program, we are able to offer a fixed price for insurance to help control costs.
All prospective intended parents – whether you’re a couple or a single individual, LGBTQ+, domestic or international – begin with a complimentary consultation that lasts approximately 2-3 hours. This helps us tailor information to meet your specific needs.
If you wish to proceed with Circle Surrogacy after your complimentary consultation, you'll sign an Agreement for Services. Once the Agreement is executed, you'll be assigned a Journey Support Team, who will guide you through every phase of the process.
The matching process begins with an initial call or Skype with your Journey Support Team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step is to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who's completed our comprehensive screening process.
To offset some expenses of surrogacy, Circle Surrogacy is committed to keeping costs as low as possible through strategic partnerships and financing options for intended parents.See Financing Options

Once we have accepted a surrogate applicant into our program, our matching and legal teams determine possible matching options based on a variety of factors, including: the state she lives in, whether she has insurance, and the matching preferences from both intended parents and surrogates.
We will exchange redacted profile of the intended parents and the surrogate (with no identifying information) If both parties express a mutual interest, we will help them to arrange an initial meeting via Skype so they can begin to get to know each other.
After communicating with each other, the surrogate and the prospective parents determine if they feel they are a good match.
An IVF physician medically screens them after a match is made. If for any reason the surrogate doesn’t pass the medical screening (which is rare), Circle Surrogacy presents a new match free of charge.
