    Thank you for your comments.

    Yes, we are planning to get two separate attorneys to work through the proper contract work.

    Yes, they are already working with a Fertility Clinic and have the embryos ready to go.

    For insurance, my employer’s health insurance does NOT cover surrogacy….the donors are planning to purchase a 3rd party policy for my wife.

    So start around $40k basis for discussing compensation? I’m already collecting a laundry list of additional fees/reimbursements on top of the flat compensation.

    I wonder, does the surrogate get a 1099 from the donors? Or do they treat it like an IRS gift?
