One of Shady Grove Fertility’s core values is to make treatment as affordable and accessible to as many people as possible. We have designed many financial programs through the years to help patients more easily afford and access treatment. Some programs offer discounts based on income or military service, while others enable you to pay a flat fee to receive multiple treatment cycles, or offer a refund if you do not take home a baby after a certain number of attempts.
One area that we know can be financially difficult for patients, though, is affording fertility medication. We regularly work with participating pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies to create programs to lower the cost of medications for our patients. With that in mind, we’ve designed our most comprehensive program to-date: our new self-pay medication discount program offers self-pay patients the best price on medications through participating pharmacies.
The Self-Pay Medication Discount Program is for patients who do not have insurance benefits—or for those who choose to waive their benefits due to high deductibles, poor coverage, or a lifetime financial cap. Through this program, patients will receive the following benefits:
- Significantly discounted medications
- Participating pharmacies, through EMD Serono, offer cost comparisons between insurance and out-of-pocket expenses
- Participating pharmacies offer specially-trained case managers for SGF patients
- This program is unique to SGF patients
The following medications will be eligible for a combined 25% discount:
- Leuprolide Acetate 2 week kit
- Birth control pills
The three participating pharmacies include: Ambulatory Care Pharmacy in Rockville, MD, Rosemont Pharmacy in Rosemont, PA, and Freedom Fertility Pharmacy through mail order. Patients can combine this program with our Shared Help Program, as well as EMD Serono’s Compassionate Care Program. To see if you qualify for added savings, go to EMDSeronoCompassionateCare.com. Additionally, you can speak with your nurse today about participating in the Self-Pay Medication Discount Program.
