Texas Fertility Center: The Affordable Fertility Care Advantage
Making affordable, high-quality fertility care available to all families through individualized financial counseling and services.
The TFC Affordable Fertility Program
At TFC we are committed to providing our patients with the highest quality fertility care. As part of this commitment, we are dedicated to offering affordable care and personalized financial counseling to each patient to help their baby dreams come true. Because of our long history as a leading edge fertility provider, we have developed relationships with programs and companies that give TFC patients preferential access to financial resources and discounts that make high quality fertility care possible for everyone.
Finding a Way for Each Patient
Our goal at TFC is to ensure that every patient has access to as much information as possible in order to find ways to ease the financial burden of infertility treatment. Once we have researched your insurance coverage and determined your benefits, our billing staff will work with you to find any discount programs that you may qualify for. Let us help you understand and plan for the best ways to cover the cost of fertility treatment so you can focus on getting pregnant.
Fertility Insurance at TFC
Insurance coverage for infertility can be confusing. Many policies cover testing to determine the cause of infertility, but not fertility treatment.
Find Out What Your Insurance Covers
We advise all of our patients to get as much information about what is and isn’t covered by their insurance policy before beginning treatment. We have two documents to help you through this process:
- Insurance Benefit Questionnaire: A list of helpful questions you should ask your insurance provider/carrier to assist you in determining what coverage you have.
- Sample Letter of Predetermination: A form letter to send to your insurance provider/carrier asking for written documentation of your coverage.
In addition, our office will independently contact your insurance carrier to determine what benefits (if any) you have. We know that each insurance policy is different, and it is important to understand the details of your policy before you begin treatment.
We Are Here To Help
TFC has contracts with many managed care health plans – please see our website for the full list, as it is subject to change from time to time. We are happy to file all claims for covered services with our contracted insurance carriers. For non-contracted health plans, we will assist you in any way that we can, and will provide you with a detailed receipt of services that you can submit directly to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
Medication Discount Programs
Often, the most expensive part of fertility treatment is often the fertility medications. There are several medication discount programs available to TFC patients – we stay involved and research each one regularly to find you maximum savings.
Compassionate Care Discount Programs
Compassionate Care discount programs are also available to eligible TFC patients who may not otherwise be able to afford fertility medication. These programs can offer substantial discounts on certain fertility medications to patients who:
- Have no insurance coverage for fertility medication
- Are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- Have an annual household income that falls below a certain threshold amount
At TFC, we understand that financial considerations play a significant role in the decision making process for infertility treatment for most of our patients. That’s why, as a fertility center with world class pregnancy rates; we continue to use our leading edge technological advantages to minimize the cost of helping you conceive Just like our doctors, nurses, and embryologists, our Billing Department is committed to assisting you every step of the way.
