I got an IUD and now they tell me I have a bicornuate uterus... Options?

First of all, I got an IUD inserted last week. I was planning on paying out of pocket (I'm under my parent's insurance but for religious reasons didn't want to utilize it for fear of discovery), but is there any way to make it cheaper? Second, I went to a check-up appointment today and they told me that I have a bicornuate uterus (heart shaped, not totally split), something they didn't check for before they inserted the IUD. I was told the IUD wasn't in the correct location and would therefore be less effective. What are my options?

I'm going back in a week to see if the position of the IUD has changed (moved closer to the cervix?)
Also, should I seek reimbursement for the cost of the device?
For background, I'm a college student in Wisconsin. I'm aware of the family planning waiver program here, although I'm not sure whether it applies to me or if I could utilize it.
