Traveling to Shady Grove Fertility
Each year hundreds of patients from across the United States travel to Shady Grove Fertility for their fertility care. Shady Grove Fertility offers out-of-area patients access to a wide range of infertility treatment options including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and donor egg. 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 travel.
Reducing the Cost of IVF & Donor Egg Treatment
Shared Risk 100% Refund Program for IVF or Donor Egg
This program is by far our most popular financial option allowing patients using either their own eggs or those of a donor. Once enrolled patients will be able to access up to six treatment cycles and an unlimited number of frozen embryo transfers, for a flat fee. Should the patient not take home a baby after 6 cycles 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.
Shady Grove Fertility offers several discount programs including Shared Help – an income based program – as well as a 25 percent military discount.
Shady Grove Fertility has partnered with Fertility Finance, a finance company specializing in loans for infertility treatment. Our partnership has allowed for a streamlined financing process for patients. Approval is based off of a credit check and generally made within 24-49 hours of application, once a patient has established themselves at Shady Grove Fertility.
Streamlined Treatment & Travel
Complimentary Initial Phone and In-Person Consultation
All out-of-area patients receive a complimentary phone consultation with a physician. During this consult, the physician will go over a brief summary of our programs and the protocol/timeline, as well as your individual medical history He or she will get a preliminary understanding of your particular situation, and how Shady Grove Fertility can assist you, prior to paying any expense. Once patients make the decision to come to our center, they will also receive a complementary in-person consultation with their physician as well.
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: the first is a recipient day visit to meet with your physician that you completed the phone consult with, a donor team nurse, a financial counselor, our donor egg recipient liaison, as well as completing any necessary pre-screening. The second visit will be for your embryo transfer. Any other additional screening would take place at a fertility center local to you.
Experience You Can Rely On
Largest Fertility Program in the United States
With more than 40,000 babies, our program represents the largest fertility program in the U.S. With size comes a level of experience that each of our patients directly benefits from as a result.
Success Rates Among the highest in the Nation
With experience comes greater success- this can be seen in our program success rates reported with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies.
No Wait for Egg Donors
Largest In-House Fresh Donor Database 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 database 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, patients get to choose their donor from either our fresh or frozen donor database. The fresh database allows patients to participate in the Shared Donor Egg Program where the frozen database allows for a faster time to treatment as the donors have already cycled and their eggs are immediately available.
