I'm getting frustrated with emails written in broken English, and am still unable to entirely intepret the fee schedule sent by Dr. Patel. Our 2nd installment of $17000 is now done, and we are having twins. She says that will take care of delivery and the account will be settled, but then in another email says that delivery is extra and that incomplete sentence has more stuff in it that is extra.So what is due upon arrival?
In my understanding the $2000 "Death" benefit is refunded when the surrogate survives delivery. I'm thinking that was included in the $17000.
The $2000 emergency delivery fee is refunded if there is no emergency delivery. I am assuming that means if there is no Caesarean section, but I'm not sure. I know with twins it is likely to have one. I'm also thinking this was included in the $17000.
I'm relatively sure that we pay $2000 extra to surrogate upon arrival....but does this equal the 25% extra in the emails she speaks of?
The $750 twin delivery fee is perhaps what will still be due for delivery, but I"m not sure. That would make sense because the numbers would work out.
She also talks in the email of an antenatal checkup fee, which isn't mentioned anywhere in the fee schedule she sent.
I'm working 60 hour weeks and we are spending everything we have left on this, so I need some clearer numbers to work with to prepare our budget. Can anyone help me?
Thank you in advance,
