Things to Consider
- Each agency will have their own solution as to what to charge for a rematch. An agency puts considerable time and money into screening surrogates, and it is only fair that they are reimbursed for these expenditures.
- An agency earns its full agency fee when it matches a surrogate with a newly retained intended parent. Therefore, money is lost by the agency when they take an available surrogate and have to offer a second match for an intended parent.
- If an intended parent requests a different surrogate, (without their being any medical justification), and the surrogate was willing to continue working with them, then there is a strong argument that the agency is entitled to an additional payment.
