One of the first questions that comes to mind when a couple finds they need the help of a fertility specialist is "how will I pay for treatment?"
The good news is that many couples do have infertility benefits to cover the initial consultation and diagnostic testing and may also have coverage for fertility treatment including IUI and IVF. The news is especially good for some patients in Maryland who may qualify for the state mandated IVF coverage. We recognize that understanding your insurance benefits can be frustrating and that a "lack of understanding" can often paralyze a couple from moving forward with fertility treatment. That is why we have invested substantial resources in making the financial/insurance process as seamless as possible you.
- We will investigate your benefits prior to or soon after your initial consultation so that you know what is covered before any testing or treatment are initiated.
- You will be introduced to your financial counselor at your new patient appointment to be sure you have one point of contact for all of your insurance questions or concerns. The counselor will help you navigate your insurance benefits and provide you with alternate financial options should you need them.
- All financial counselors are supported by an experienced managed care team. These teams are organized by insurance plan so they become intimately familiar with specific policies and have contacts within each organization. They work diligently to ensure your plan coverage is maximized.
- For patients without insurance benefits for treatment, we offer a variety of options including:
