What we want these service men and women to know...is that we are honored to have a chance to serve them.
(PRWEB) November 08, 2012
As a passionate advocate of making family wishes come true, IVF New Jersey Fertility Center is helping active U.S. military personnel and veterans by offering significant discounts on fertility treatments and subsidized medications. Due to the risks of being on active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, more than 1,800 U.S. military members have incurred injuries affecting the reproductive tract. While the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs does the best they can, they are unable to cover the costs of in-vitro fertilization for veterans, which averages between $12,000 and $15,000.
“This is an ongoing discount because the affects of their injuries are also ongoing,” says Jane Tervooren, IVFNJ Markeing Director. “When many of these young men and women were deployed, they didn’t leave their dreams of having a family behind. We’re just thrilled that we are able to contribute in some way to help them grow their families when they return.”
The topic of providing fertility services to U.S. military has been covered by several major media sources, including the Associated Press. It’s a real need that IVFNJ was well-aware of before the headlines. Their fertility experts have a history of working with these men and women, with positive testimonials going back several years. The program will continue to service these personnel at their five convenient locations throughout the Northeast.
IVF New Jersey Fertility Center has helped patients from across the globe and boasts one of the highest success rates in the United States. They have successfully matched more than 2,000 recipients through their egg donation program. Their physicians have received international industry recognition for their work as well as publicity on the Today Show and New York Magazine. But their main sources of inspiration come from many heart-warming success stories, several of which can be read on their website.
“We understand that it’s humbling enough to have to come to a physician’s office and discuss infertility, much less having to add a need for financial assistance on top of that,” says Tervooren. “What we want these service men and women to know when they arrive at our office, is that we are honored to have a chance to serve them. For all they’ve done for our country, this is really a program for our benefit because it gives us a chance to give back.”
For active U.S. military personnel and veterans to participate in this offer, they need only make an appointment with one of IVF New Jersey’s five locations.
