WINFertility, Inc., the leader in Infertility Management Programs for insurers and employers, today announced the launch of its new consumer offering: the WINFertilitySM Quality Discount Treatment Program. The new initiative is designed to increase the availability of affordable, advanced fertility care that remains financially out of reach for many of the more than 7 million people facing infertility today who are without infertility insurance coverage.
WINFertility has developed evidence-based treatment protocols for IUI, IVF and Third Party Reproduction, delivered by a contracted, credentialed network of fertility specialists. Infertility medications are included in the single, discounted, bundled price for Program participants.There are no age or medical criteria required to enroll in the Program. If treatment is indicated by a participating provider and the patient has no infertility insurance coverage, she can enroll in the WINFertility Program. Typical patient savings per treatment cycle can range from $5,000 to $10,000 or more, depending on treatments and medication doses required.
