What is a Fertility Pharmacy?

No matter the reason, starting fertility treatments can feel like an overwhelming process. You’ve worked closely with your doctor or specialist to determine what options are right for you, but when it comes to actually getting your medications and prescriptions filled, you may be left with some questions. 

  • Will I have the support I need? 
  • What happens if I need a refill quickly? 
  • How do I know they’re being properly stored so the treatments work the way I need them to?

Though general pharmacies play an essential role in our communities, they cannot provide the one-on-one care fertility patients need due to the sheer amount of prescriptions they fill each day. On top of that, they may not even be able to properly store or handle these complex medications. 

That’s where fertility pharmacies like VFP Pharmacy Group come in. These organizations are exclusively focused on helping those starting these specific treatments and work hand-in-hand with your doctor or specialist throughout the entire process. Keep reading; we’ll show you exactly how we provide convenient, patient-focused care.

What Sets a Fertility Pharmacy Apart

Accessibility and Connection

There never seems to be enough time during the day, which can lead to some worries about refilling your prescription in a timely manner. With VFP Pharmacy Group, when filling your new or refill prescriptions, they can either be picked up at one of our locations or have it delivered. If you decide on the latter, we’ll work with you directly to arrange the most convenient delivery day for you once we receive your order.

If your prescription runs out, you can contact us, and we can work with your clinic to help you determine the amount of medication needed for refill (though you can still work with your doctor on this as well).

Financing

For many, the cost of fertility medication can be a source of stress. But VFP Pharmacy Group can provide you with information about a number of pricing and financing programs to help reduce your costs. This is true whether you have medications that are covered by insurance or not.

Additionally, our experienced team is here to walk patients through their insurance coverage and discuss payment options for those who may lack coverage on fertility medications. We work with providers on behalf of patients and provide each patient with the information they can use to confidently discuss any issues they may have with their insurance companies directly.

Staff Support 

Our staff consists of well-trained fertility experts who are available to answer any questions you might have. Our staff is available by phone or email throughout the business day, and our on-call pharmacists and nurses are available after hours to help with any urgent matters pertaining to your medication or order. On top of that, you can contact Director of Nursing Services, Hannah Lind, and her team directly to address your concerns and get the information you need.
