Gestational Surrogacy procedure under our new "Dream Discount Plus Program:"
Dream Discount Plus Program
Gestational Surrogacy (2014 fees: $19,800) The fees subject to the Dream Discount Program are highlighted Red in this Price List.
The following are the charges incurred during a Gestational Surrogacy procedure. We have done our very
best to estimate the charges accurately, although patient variance will often occur.
If we participate with your insurance company, we will verify benefits prior to Gestational Surrogacy. If
Gestational Surrogacy is a covered service, we will bill your insurance company and collect any co-
payments due at the time of service. If Gestational Surrogacy is not a covered service or we do not
participate with your insurance plan, no charges will be billed to your insurance company and all fees will be
as listed as best as we can estimate in the following pages.
Gestational Surrogacy Legal Fees:
All legal fees need to be discussed in detail with your attorney and the attorney representing the Gestational
Surrogate (GS). We have, however, done our best to give you some rough estimates from the attorney we use
most frequently (Harold Eskin, Es as listed below:

Gestational Surrogacy Price List (cont.) CMV testing of the female will only be done if the surrogate is CMV IgG negative. : The Counsyl Test screens for whether the patient is a carrier of certain genetic diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis,
Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Tay-Sachs disease, and Sickle Cell disease, which can significantly impair a child's normal development or life expectancy. For some of these conditions, early diagnosis can alter pregnancy outcomes. We are using the screen that the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) and the American College of Medical Genetics (ACMG) recommend for genetic carrier screening. Additional fees will be discussed with the Commissioning Couple/Intended Parent prior to being performed.

There are a couple of embryo transfer possibilities which will need to be individually decided. The options
are as follow:
1. The GS has her cycle controlled and her uterus is prepared for a Fresh Embryo Transfer. This will be performed in conjunction with the ovarian stimulation/egg retrieval procedures as listed above. 2. All embryos are cryopreserved for future thaw and transfer in a natural (ovulatory) cycle. If the GS does not conceive with the first transfer, she may undergo one or more transfers in a later cycle. Interestingly, the options will be the same listed as above. If she does not ovulate, she will undergo the same preparation as the Fresh Embryo Transfer (Replacement Cycle) while if she does ovulate, the fees will be as stated for the natural (ovulatory cycle). Gestational Surrogacy Price List (cont.) The price list from this point forward is broken down into these various options. Transfer of Fresh Embryos or Transfer of Thawed Embryos
in The Anovulatory GS (Replacement Cycle)
Estradiol Valerate Progesterone / Vaginal Lupron will not be needed if the patient is in menopause. If additional medications are required, these will be paid to the pharmacy as needed GS Recipient Monitoring:
Estrogen Levels (x9) Ultrasounds (x3) Venipuncture (x9)
GS Post Transfer Fees:

The GS medications ($1293 - $1643) will be purchased at the pharmacy and will be due upon time of
service. GS Monitoring Fees ($1,770) will be due by cycle start date.
It is possible that another less costly replacement protocol would be advised with a potential savings of
approximately $1556 on medications and monitoring prior to the embryo transfer and another $1374 once
pregnancy is achieved. We are randomizing patients between protocols at this time so there is no guarantee
which protocol will be recommended for you.

Neurofeedback – How Attention Takes Flight Pierre Walther and Stephan Ellinger Goethe University Frankfurt, Julius-Maximillians-University Würzburg (GERMANY) Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) alone or in combination with Hyperactivity (ADHD) is one of the most common disorders in childhood and adolescence and even persists into adulthood. Children with ADHD show a higher amount of slow brain waves and a decreased amount of faster brain waves compared to children without ADHD (Barry et al., 2003). The basic idea of neurofeedback is to transfer the unconscious process of brain wave function into a conscious process by reporting it to the patient. The Brainfeeders project aims to evaluate the possibilities for integrating neurofeedback in a school setting. The primary goal of the study is to replicate results found in clinical trials without any additional human resources. We would like to evaluate how well a training programme like this fits in school settings and if results are comparable to clinical studies. We are interested in forming a transnational working group, integrating researchers who are working on similar projects or who are interested in working on Brainfeeders in their countries.
