If you are under 35 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for 12 months without success, 35+ and have been trying for six months, or 39+ and have been trying unsuccessfully for three months, you may need fertility treatment if you want to have a baby. Navigating the fertility treatment landscape by yourself can be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful.
Fertility management is a service which either integrates with or supplements your health insurance coverage for fertility treatment and helps make the process smoother, less stressful, and more successful.
WINFertility may work with your health insurance carrier’s provider network or may provide access to its network of fertility specialists, depending on the plan your employer chooses. Both models ensure that patients see the highest-quality providers. In either case, patients work with a Nurse Care Manager to find the most appropriate fertility specialist and manage their care, including testing, treatments, and medications. The Nurse Care Manager is available 24/7 to support you through your family building journey.
WINFertility specializes in fertility management, which improves patient outcomes and makes fertility treatment less stressful. WIN Nurse Care Managers guide patients through their fertility journey, helping them make decisions and advocating for patients throughout the process.

As a specialist in fertility management, WINFertility offers a comprehensive care management model which combines all aspects of medical and pharmacy infertility care management and can easily integrate with your existing insurance carrier. Treatment solutions can be delivered using WIN’s provider network or integrated with an employer’s chosen health insurance carrier. Both models connect patients to the highest quality providers. Through fertility management, WIN patients are able to maximize their dollars by choosing clinically-appropriate treatment plans and related medications.
Our Nurse Care Managers educate patients on treatment options and medications recommended by their clinical team. Self-administered medications are commonly anxiety provoking, especially for those that have never had to give themselves injections before. WIN nurses assist in bridging this gap and serve as a resource, walking patients through how to administer medication correctly. Dosing and formulary management allows for accurate dispensing of medications without disruption of service, reducing overutilization and wastage, and achieving 100% formulary compliance. Our prior authorization program provides dosing management for all fertility related drugs, driving efficiency and cost savings.Our diagnosis-specific care management is based on proprietary, evidence–based protocols to ensure the most effective care, including IVF with eSET (elective single embryo transfer) as the first line of treatment.
WINFertility’s fertility management has been shown to result in:
