Houston IVF Compassionate Care Program

Infertility can be confusing and stressful enough without the added uncertainty of paying for treatment. At Houston IVF, we are dedicated to solving the mystery of infertility, one couple at a time, but we realize that infertility care can be expensive, and perhaps seem out of reach for some couples.

That is why we have implemented the Compassionate Care Program, designed to make infertility treatment more available and affordable.  Patients who have no insurance coverage for ART procedures and limited personal resources are eligible to receive discounts up to 30% on their treatment at Houston IVF.

During the course of preparation, couples often spend time and money undergoing treatments which may be less expensive, but also less effective, and end up paying more than they would have had they been promptly diagnosed and treated by a specialist. Our objective is to remove the financial anxiety associated with treatment options and help couples determine the best solution. In instances where IVF is the most logical treatment option, Compassionate Care helps couples in need reduce their out-of-pocket expenses.

How the Program Works

  • Patients of Houston IVF who have a combined household income of less than $85,000 simply fill out the Compassionate Care Program application in the office. Copies of the last two years’ federal tax returns will need to accompany the completed application form.
  • Those who are approved will receive up to a 30% discount on their IVF treatment (medications and workups not included).
  • A patient’s approval for the Compassionate Care program is good for six months, and reapplication with updated returns is required outside of that period.

For more information about the Houston IVF Compassionate Care Program and to apply, please advise the doctor of your interest during your initial consultation.
