[Patients] typically feel less overwhelmed and more focused after they have had a chance to meet with us. We want to bring that same hope to patients without insurance, Dr. Mark Leondires.
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is launching two new financial packages for infertility patients: Fertility Consultation Opportunity Plan and Fertility Work-up Opportunity Plan. Like the Connecticut fertility practices’ other Opportunity Plans, these packages have a flat rate and strive to make infertility treatment more accessible.
“When we see a new couple who is struggling to get pregnant, they typically feel less overwhelmed and more focused after they have had a chance to meet with us,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, medical director for RMACT. “We want to bring that same hope to patients without insurance. These two new Opportunity Plans are designed to give couples one less hurdle in their path to having a family.”
The Fertility Consultation Opportunity Plan includes an initial discussion with one of RMACT’s five Board Certified reproductive endocrinologists about a couple’s fertility and assisted reproductive technology (ART). The consultation includes a review of the patients’ full medical history, previous records review, and a discussion about their next steps.
The second package, called the Fertility Work-up Opportunity Plan, allows patients to pay a flat fee for infertility diagnostic testing that will help determine their individualized treatment plans. The diagnostic testing includes:
- Day 3 Blood work (Estradiol, FS, LH, Progesterone)
- Baseline Hormone testing (TSH, Prolactin)
- Uterine evaluation (Sonohysterogram or HSG)
- Mid-cycle Ultrasound
- Follow up consultation with a doctor after testing is completed
Male partners can have a semen analysis for an additional fee.
These are the latest two Opportunity Plans offered by RMACT. The other Opportunity Plans that RMACT offers are financial packages for In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), Surrogacy, and Donor Egg. The goal with each of these plans to help patients by making infertility treatment accessible to anyone without insurance coverage, as well to help ease the stress during treatment.
