Each preadoption medical review includes:

  • one-to-one, personalized attention
  • secure online, in-writing responses you can download for your records
  • optional phone call with the reviewer
  • unlimited opportunities to ask questions
  • consultations with additional U of M specialists, as needed
  • consultation assistance while you are traveling to meet your child
  • eligibility to obtain waiver letter to waive waiting period

With the personalized attention, unlimited opportunities to interact with the reviewer, and access to multiple specialists around the U of M, the fees for a preadoption medical review are a wise investment for your family. Depending on your required response time, our fees range from $400 - $750.

The fee schedule is:

  • 24-hr medical review ($650 weekdays, $750 weekends* and University of Minnesota holidays)
  • 72-hr medical review ($500 new client, $400 return clients who have used our services w/in the last 6 months)

* Please allow 24 or 72 hours during business days Mon-Fri only. Weekend responses are only done on request and weekend rates start 3pm Friday and end 11:59p Sunday. Holiday rates start 3pm the night before the holiday and end at 11:59p the day of the holiday.

You can submit your referral information any time of the day or night. 24-hour or 72-hour response times (business days) are guaranteed. We can also assist you on weekends and holidays - we are with you!

Once the file is submitted, our Medical Reviewer begins to work on the review. Thus, we cannot offer a refund once the review process has begun.

We review and comment on all aspects of the child's referral information: growth, development, infectious disease status, social and medical history, birth parents' social and medical history (if available). We also evaluate their long-term risk for signs of alcohol or other prenatal exposures.
