New Life Agency said that has joined forces with The Diamond Institute IVF Center and Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy to create In Vitro Fertilization insurance program. The Assisted Reproduction Care (ARC) Insurance Program offers patients suffering from infertility feasible financial solutions for the costs of IVF treatments, procedures and fertility medications.
According to New Life Agency, the program combines insurance coverage with a fertility medication discount plan that can save The Diamond Institute IVF center’s patients more than 50% on the cost of standard services, over the average treatment term. It offers discounts on fertility medications through Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy.
In addition, it offers 10 doctor-recommend plan options for individual fertility needs, allowing the patient to move through their treatment process aware of the total cost of each phase. If pregnancy is not achieved, the program offers refunds and credits during the 18-month enrollment term, the company said.
Trish Taylor, president of New Life Agency, said: Our partnership with Diamond Institute and Walgreens is a great beginning to an industry-altering turn towards giving patients facing infertility more financial control and insurance surety where they have none today. Our partnerships’ demonstrate our company’s commitment to help patients and we hope more IVF centers will join our program when we open our offerings to additional providers in 2010.
