Shared Donor Egg
Shared Donor Egg is a very popular option that can reduce the cost of treatment by up to 50% or it can offer a 6 cycle 100% money-back guarantee for the same cost as a traditional donor egg cycle. The pregnancy rates for patients who have selected this program are equal to the pregnancy rates of traditional egg donation. There no waiting list to receive donated eggs.
The program is exclusively offered at Shady Grove Fertility Centers and was developed in response to one of the major barriers patients experience when donor egg is their only treatment option; the lack of insurance coverage for an expensive, yet highly successful, procedure.
What is the Shared Donor Program?
The Shared Donor Options
There are several variations within the Shared Egg Donor Program which offers patients the ability to truly customize a plan that works for them, from a medical, emotional, and financial perspective. One fee-for-service option allows patients to realize a savings of up to 50% over the cost of a traditional donor egg treatment cycle. Another all-inclusive Shared Risk option gives patients the opportunity up to six cycles, if necessary, with a 100% money back guarantee if baby is not delivered. Patients pay a flat fee equal to one traditional donor egg cycle that includes the treatment, donor fee, and medications for all six cycles. What is different, or the trade off, is that the donor is shared. As our data below demonstrates, success rates remain very high even when donors are shared among one, two, or three recipient couples.
