“Everyone deserves the right to build a family,” said Betsy Campbell, chief engagement officer for RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association. “Cost should not be a barrier to getting the care you need.”
Treating infertility or preserving future fertility is an expensive undertaking. For many, the path is difficult and emotionally taxing.
According to the CDC, about 9-12% of all men and women of reproductive age have experienced problems with infertility. However, many more are choosing to delay starting a family due to financial concerns, career opportunities as well as wanting to find the right partner. Whatever the reason an individual seeks treatment, the costs are absolutely staggering.
One full round of IVF can cost as much as $20,000 depending on the course of action needed. Most insurance providers do not cover more than the initial diagnosis. While many medical advances have been made to help individuals conceive, the biggest challenge is the cost of the very treatments that will help them create future children.
The Jewish Free Loan Association hopes to relieve the financial burden that expenses related to fertility can place on men, women and couples.
