In general, a free tubal reversal surgery is a long shot because both the government nor insurance companies don’t think that this is a medically necessary procedure. That said, there are several church-based organizations that offer such service to a limited number of people. But before we get to that point, let’s discuss the tubal reversal surgery definition, risk cost, etc so that you can learn a bit more about this procedure.
This surgery is meant to reverse the process for women who have their tubes tied, allowing them to have a normal pregnancy once more. However, women who have taken part in the procedure have an increased risk of having an ectopic pregnancy. What is an ectopic pregnancy? It is a pregnancy that occurs within the fallopian tube. This risk is even higher if you are pregnant immediately after the reversal surgery. Therefore, doctors always recommend women wait up to 60 days after the surgery is performed. They may recommend birth control methods to lower the risk. However, don’t let this discourage you. In fact, most women who have this tubal reversal surgery have normal pregnancies, as long as they follow the doctor’s recommendation.

So as you can see, the tubal reversal surgery cost is pretty high. So is there any possible way to get free tubal reversal surgery?
There are several church-based organization that provides such a service. However, because there are so many women wanting to get free tubal reversal surgery, you have to enlist yourself on their waiting list. The organization may also charge you around $20 per month to keep you on their list. Some may get the procedure in 4 to 9 months, but others may have to wait even longer than that. In some cases, you might not be picked after all.

Other tubal reversal surgery financing options
As you can see, getting a free tubal reversal surgery is unlikely, because even though you can get yourself on the waiting list you may have to pay a monthly fee. In our opinion, the best solution to finance this procedure is to persistently save some money. This way you can really plan ahead, and you can avoid the interest rate that you can get if you financed the surgery by taking a loan from a bank or other financial lenders. You have to be extra careful when you’re choosing the company. But, for Muslim people, insurance, credit card or loan, and other financing options, there always has an interest rate, and it does not match with the shariah system, so, be careful!
If you are eligible for federal grants or other types of grants from other institutions, you should not spend your grant for this surgery. In general, grants are intended for basic needs or education. Remember, having children takes a lot of effort, money, and energy. You should make sure that you can raise them well.
