Conventional fertility benefits may not meet the family-building needs of all people wanting to build a family, especially LGBTQ+ personnel and women who are unable to carry a baby to term. Offering surrogacy in addition to more traditional fertility benefits helps provide a welcoming, inclusive environment for all.
Intended parents can also take advantage of WIN’s Consumer Program to save on fertility treatment and medication for their surrogate’s pregnancy journey, and be referred to Vesta (formerly the Employee Adoption & ART Program)
Vesta includes an online curriculum of helpful resources explaining non-traditional family-building options, processes and costs, one-on-one coaching by caring experts to help guide patients on the path that is best for them, and a high-value low cost benefit with clarity and understanding, while reducing stress and saving time and money.
The online portal through Vesta provides access to an in-depth, on-demand video library with topics including surrogacy, choosing a path and a provider, how to pay for the journey including information on grants, loans and fundraising, and live webinars designed to explain the benefit, how to utilize the resources and coach and support throughout the family-building journey.
