Medication Discount Programs
edication is a vital piece of a patient's treatment, and sometimes a piece that is not covered by insurance. To help patients, Shady Grove Fertility participates with multiple pharmaceutical programs to reduce the cost of medication.
To find out which program will work best for your individual protocol and treatment plan, please consult your doctor or nurse.
Self-Pay Medication Discount Program
Through Shady Grove Fertility's Self-Pay Medication Discount Program, self-pay patients can receive a combined discount of 25 percent off eligible medications from participating pharmacies.
