International & out-of-state patients
Over the past 30 years, patients from over 35 countries and all over the U.S. have traveled to Shady Grove Fertility for their fertility care. To provide the best service for patients, we offer several financial programs to help reduce the cost as well as a streamlined treatment process to help reduce international travel.
Streamlined travel & treatment
Complimentary initial phone and in-person consultation
All out-of-area patients receive a complimentary phone consultation with a physician. During this consult, patients will review their medical history, and receive the physician’s recommendation prior to having to incur any expense.
Two visits for patients undergoing donor egg treatment
Since the stimulation monitoring is completed by the donor, whom is local to our center, you only need to visit our center on two occasions: an initial recipient day visit to meet with your physician, nurse, and the rest of the donor team and then return for the embryo transfer.
Co-management agreements for international patients
Shady Grove Fertility has co-management agreements with centers in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. These agreements allow us to minimize the number of visits needed to our center. We will liaise directly with your local clinic to arrange any additional appointment you will need.
Reducing the cost of IVF & donor egg treatment
We understand that patients are very anxious about affording care and about treatment that may not have a successful outcome on the first attempt, which is why Shady Grove Fertility has created a treatment guarantee program.
Shared Risk 100% Refund Program
The Shared Risk 100% Refund Program is by far our most popular financial option allowing patients to access up to 6 treatment cycles and an unlimited number of frozen embryo transfers for a flat fee. Should the patient not take home a baby or decide to leave the program early they will receive a 100% refund, some exclusions may apply.
Shared Donor Egg Program
Donor egg treatment has historically been cost prohibitive for many patients. The introduction of Shady Grove Fertility’s Shared Donor Egg Program changed that – now more couples than ever are able to access this needed treatment. A retrospective look at our donor cycles found that splitting the eggs of a single donor, along with the cost, between 2 or 3 couples reduced the expense without impacting the outcomes in both pregnancy and live birth rates.
No wait for donors
One of the largest in-house fresh donor registry in the nation
There is no wait for donors as all of our donors have been medically pre-screened and are ready to begin their donation cycle as soon as their cycles are synced with yours. The donor registry features lengthy donor profiles with information about the donors’ personal and family medical histories, photos, and essays explaining why they are interested in donating their eggs.
Fresh and frozen donor egg options
At Shady Grove Fertility, you will choose your donor from either our fresh or frozen donor registry. The fresh registry allows you to participate in the Shared Donor Egg Program where the frozen registry allows for a faster time to treatment as the donors have already cycled and their eggs are immediately available.
Experience you can rely on
Largest fertility program in the United States
With more than 100,000 babies born, our center is the largest in the nation and, with size, comes a level of experience that our patients can rely on. In addition, we complete the largest number of egg donation cycles in the United States.
Success rates among the highest in the nation
With experience comes greater success—this can be seen in our program’s success rates reported with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies.
