To start the process, you would need to set up a new patient appointment to discuss your particular situation.  Then testing would be performed to test ovarian function, uterine factors and evaluate if how likely it would be for a tubal reversal to be successful.  Then we would determine if it was wise to proceed.  IVF can be considered depending on these tests.  Insurance typically will cover the workup but not the treatment.
