Overview of Egg Donation Services
Tiny Treasures is an egg donation facilitation agency
that guides Egg Donors and Prospective Parents through the process of
egg donation, from start to finish:
- Our agency will match Prospective Parents with the right Egg Donor
for them. Prospective Parents can choose an Egg Donor from among the
200+ Egg Donors available in our Egg Donor Database
or can request that we help
them find the ideal Egg Donor via our specialty
- Upon being matched with
an Egg Donor, we will facilitate the contractual agreements between
the Prospective Parents and the Egg Donor. We will refer both parties
to reputable fertility attorneys who will draft, review, and finalize
the egg donation contract.
- We will facilitate the coordination of a trust account,
via a third-party reproduction trust account specialist, who will
manage all the financial arrangements required for an egg donation
cycle. This account will be used to distribute funds, as needed,
for successful completion of the egg donation cycle.
- We will refer Prospective Parents to reputable egg donation specialists
and IVF clinics, if requested.
- We will manage the arrangement of all medical and psychological
appointments on behalf of the Egg Donor, to ensure a smooth egg donation
- We will provide Egg Donors and Prospective Parents with accidental
health and life insurance that will cover any unexpected medical
difficulties caused by the egg donation cycle.
- Lastly, we will guide and support both Prospective Parents
and Egg Donors through the entire egg donation process. We understand
that egg donation is an important and complex undertaking and
we are here to be your "helping hand" throughout the
Egg Donation Arrangements
Tiny Treasures coordinates both in-state/local
and out-of-state/area egg donation arrangements. An out-of-state/area
egg donation refers to an arrangement in which the Egg Donor resides in
a state or area other than that in which the Prospective Parents'
IVF clinic is located, requiring the Egg Donor to travel for the
egg donation cycle. Clinics vary greatly with regard to their out-of-state/area Egg
Donor protocols. Many clinics allow for an out-of-state/area Egg Donor to
be medically and psychologically screened, as well as initially
monitored, at a clinic local to the Egg Donor. In this case, Tiny Treasures will coordinate all the necessary arrangements with a IVF
clinic local to the Egg Donor. Some clinics require that the Egg Donor travel
to their site for one or two days to complete all of the medical
and psychological screening. Most clinics require that the Egg Donor
travel to their site as she approaches her retrieval time, such
that the last week or so of monitoring is carried out by the Prospective
Parents' clinic. Typically,Egg Donors are required to travel for approximately
5-7 days for the egg donation monitoring and retrieval. Travel requirements
vary greatly from clinic to clinic, however, and may range from
2 to 10 days. In addition to coordinating all the arrangements with
the local screening/monitoring clinic, Tiny Treasures will
coordinate all travel arrangements necessary for an out-of-state/area egg
All egg donations coordinated by Tiny Treasures require an
contract between the Egg Donor and Prospective Parents.
This contract will address important legal implications pertaining
to the egg donation agreement, including the legal responsibility
of both parties, compensation agreement terms, ownership of eggs
resulting from the egg donation, etc. The Egg Donor and Prospective Parents
must be represented by independent attorneys, who will draft and
carefully review the egg donation contract for them, explain their
legal rights to them, and address any legal concerns they may have
regarding the egg donation procedure. Tiny Treasures has good
working relationships with many attorneys who specialize in third-party
reproductive law and can refer Prospective Parents and Egg Donors to
these attorneys, some of whom offer special discounted rates to
Tiny Treasures' clients. Prospective Parents may also opt
to locate and utilize their own legal counsel for the purposes of
the egg donation contract.
Egg Donor & Recipient Insurance
Tiny Treasures has taken steps on behalf of our Egg Donors and Recipients to minimize the risk of financial loss that a complication of this type of procedure could present. Tiny Treasures, acting as a third party in procurement of insurance coverage, has secured a Blanket Accident Insurance Policy from Chartis Insurance, an AIG company, that protects Donors and Recipients. All Prospective Parents are required to purchase this Egg Donor and Recipient Accidental Health Insurance. This insurance will cover up to $250,000 of incurred medical expenses if either the Donor or Recipient experience medical problems as a result of the egg donation procedure. Any insurance claims over $3,500 will be in excess of any insurance the Egg Donor or recipient may have.
Subsequent Egg Donation Cycle Policy
Since any egg donation cycle runs the risk of being
unsuccessful, Tiny Treasures offers an optional Subsequent Egg Donation
Cycle Policy. For any egg donation cycle coordinated by Tiny Treasures, Prospective Parents have the option of purchasing this policy
to minimize expenses associated with their having to undergo another
egg donation cycle, in the event that their original cycle is unsuccessful.
