Helping Couples Overcome Infertility
We realize the importance of providing care in a compassionate and understanding environment. Our Fellowship trained Reproductive Endocrinology and infertility specialists and fertility clinic staff have extensive experience working with infertile couples. We encourage you to review our patients’ evaluations of our services.
Our Web site includes a page on why it is critical to see a specialist early in the course of your infertility evaluation. Pregnancy success rates are higher, and cost is usually lower, when treatments are directed to a patient’s specific problems by a specialist.
A couple’s first concern is usually: “What are my chances of taking home a baby?” Dependent upon the cause(s) of infertility, advanced technologies are usually not needed. Simple ovulation enhancement with oral medications is effective in 20-30% of infertile couples. If more aggressive therapy is needed, intrauterine insemination (IUI) is often a good relatively low cost treatment option.
In RCC’s intrauterine insemination (IUI) program, up to 23 % of patients will achieve pregnancy in each treatment cycle with an estimated cumulative pregnancy rate greater than 50% within three treatment cycles depending on the ovulation induction protocol used. Many patients, even those with long standing infertility, don’t require in vitro fertilization (IVF). Ovulation induction and IUI provide good success rates at much lower cost for most patients.
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine specifically prohibits clinics from comparing their IVF success rates based upon reports submitted to the CDC and SART because of numerous couple specific variables. For example, one clinic may have younger females, which have a better chance of conception thus inflating success rates. ASRM states that direct clinic comparisons are very misleading.
RCC implemented 100% Money Back Guarantee IVF programs to help couples achieve pregnancy and delivery of a live baby. If a live baby is not delivered after completion of the program, your money is refunded. 94% of couples (152/161 couples) who have completed our Money Back Guarantee program (2000- 2004) have delivered a live baby. This program offers a very high chance for pregnancy and delivery. If success is not achieved, the 100% refund can be used to pursue adoption or the use of donor egg.
Affording Infertility Treatments
Cost is always a concern since advanced infertility treatments are not covered by most insurance companies in Utah; however, most diagnostic procedures are covered. We try to be as efficient and cost effective as possible in our evaluation and treatment plans. We don't want cost to keep any couple from pursuing evaluation of their situation and treatment options, so we offer many discount programs based on ability to pay.
We also offer innovative programs to help couples afford therapy including IVF multiple cycle discount packages, competitive financing, and others. Our patient liaisons work with couples to help them choose the best treatment option. Our billing staff are available to discuss potential costs of diagnostic testing and treatment. Free financial consults can be scheduled if desired or E-mail Billing@FertilityDr.com
