When starting fertility treatment—whether that be to grow your family or ensure you have the opportunity to in the future—one of the most sincere pain points is whether or not you'll be able to afford it. Medications, in general, are typically quite expensive, and on top of that, adding the tag “specialty” to anything typically insinuates a premium price. At VFP Pharmacy Group, we want to make the transactional component of your fertility journey as painless as possible, so we work with each of our patients to ensure that affording their fertility medication isn’t a barrier to their overall success.
Whether you’ve got an exemplary insurance plan or aim to pay out of your own pocket, we’re here to help you make affording your fertility medication a painless process.
Self-pay options for fertility medication
Outside of a simple cash payment option, there are many programs available to you to help you finance your fertility medication if you’re without insurance coverage or insurance coverage that doesn’t have a great plan for fertility service costs. Below you’ll find a few examples we can help you with, but this is just the start.
Compassionate Care - EMD Serono
The EMD Serono Compassionate Care Program exists to provide discounted medication to eligible self-pay patients who are pursuing fertility treatment based on their unique financial situation and/or military status (also known as Compassionate Corps). Compassionate Care was designed to make fertility treatments more affordable if your medications aren’t covered by insurance. The program enrolled nearly 8,000 patients in 2020, saving them approximately $11.7 million.
Ferring Savings Plans
Ferring Savings Plans, like the Compassionate Care Program, exists to help self-pay fertility patients fund the services, care, and fertility medications they need along their personal journey. There are many different plan options in play, such as OneHeart, HeartFelt, HeartTomorrow, HeartBeat, and Heart for Heroes, that enable patients to choose the plan that best suits their needs.
