We are a proud participant in the Service to Veterans program, established by The Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) and ASRM. Under this program participating fertility centers offer discounts to veterans whose service-related injuries have rendered them in need of IVF.
This initiative was created to address the inconsistency in accessibility of care for active military personnel and veterans. The Veteran’s Administration (VA) is prohibited under federal law from providing IVF services to the patients it serves. This means that vets whose service-related injuries damaged their reproductive systems cannot access IVF, even though active duty military personnel can.
We are offering a 25% discount off all self pay/non insurance covered IVF services to those who serve/have served our country in an effort to make reproductive treatment more accessible and affordable for military personnel. The discount cannot be applied to insurance deductibles or coinsurance.
The Bob Woodruff Foundation – IVF Fund Program
Recently passed legislation allows, for now, coverage of the costs of assisted reproductive technology, including IVF, for veterans who have lost the ability to conceive due to injuries incurred during service to our nation. The BWF (Bob Woodruff Foundation) has recognized that the legislation will take time to take effect and cover IVF.
As such, BWF will offer financial assistance to affected veterans to cover unreimbursed costs up to $5,000 associated with IVF treatments. The IVF Fund, supported by grants from Merck & Co., Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and EMD Serono, complements the “Serving Our Veterans” program established by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART).
We are proud to offer this opportunity to our eligible patients! Please access the online application here.
