Attain Fertility® Multi-Cycle Discount Program
We are the only fertility practice in our region to offer the exclusive Attain Fertility® Multi-Cycle Discount Program, which allows you to have multiple IVF cycles for a single, discounted fee. This program is designed to ease the uncertainties around IVF and make IVF care more accessible, including those with limited or no insurance coverage. Even with the best treatment, it usually takes more than one IVF cycle to achieve a successful pregnancy.

In fact, 80 percent of Attain participants who complete their treatment plan take home a baby.

Fertility Preservation Before Treatment
Fertility Centers of Illinois wants to provide women faced with cancer with every opportunity available to preserve their fertility until their health is fully restored. Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for discounted services and/or free medication.
Women who have been diagnosed with cancer often come to us to help preserve their fertility. We have partnered with the LIVESTRONG Fertility program, joining the nearly 400 centers across 48 states that offer discounted services to cancer patients. We offer a greatly discounted package for patients who qualify. LIVESTRONG also gives qualified applicants access to fertility medications donated by EMD Serono. Apply Here.
Heartbeat Fertility Preservation
Together with Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy, we can provide women diagnosed with cancer free medication donated by Ferring. There are no financial requirements and no paperwork to fill out. We’ll just submit the prescription and they’ll dispense the medication. To qualify, females need to be US Citizens (or permanent residents), have a diagnosis of cancer but not yet starting treatment, no recent chemotherapy treatment in the last six months, and have an oncologist and reproductive endocrinologist determine that fertility preservation treatment is medically appropriate.
If you want to know if you qualify, contact our Patient Services Team at 877-324-4483.
Save on Fertility Medication
To help address the costs of medications, Fertility Centers of Illinois has partnered with EMD Serono and Ferring Pharmaceuticals to help you by offering multiple medication discount programs. Regardless of whether you are an insured or a self-pay patient, the programs you may qualify for below will help you to overcome some of the financial hurdles that you may experience when finding the dollars needed to pay for your medication.
Discounts in Honor of Military Service
As the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) does not cover IVF treatment, veterans without commercial health insurance tend to face high costs. To help veterans and their eligible family members get access to the fertility treatments they need, we have partnered with EMD Serono to offer a 25 percent discount for patients who qualify. The Compassionate Corp Program provides free medication to eligible, uninsured veterans with service-related injuries and their spouses for up to two cycles per year. Those veterans who are not eligible are encouraged to apply for the Compassionate Care Program. To learn more, simply visit fertilitylifelines.com.
Self Pay Medication Discount Program
Through Fertility Centers of Illinois’ Self-Pay Medication Discount Program, self-pay patients can receive a combined discount of 25 percent off eligible EMD Serono medications from participating pharmacies. The Self-Pay Medication Discount Program is available to patients who do not have insurance benefits—or for those who waive their benefits due to high deductibles, poor coverage, or a lifetime financial cap.
Compassionate Care Program
Through our Compassionate Care Program, you can enjoy a discount of up to 75 percent off select EMD Serono medications, depending on your income, when paying out of pocket for fertility treatment. This can be especially helpful for those who have limited insurance benefits. By paying out of pocket for the medications through the Compassionate Care Program, you can preserve your insurance coverage to pay for actual procedures. To find out more, visit fertilitylifelines.com.
Save on Medications with the Go Direct to Savings Program
Another way to help with the high cost of medication is with the Go Direct To Savings discount program. This program can save you nearly 10 percent on Gonal-f®, Ovidrel® PreFilled Syringe and Cetrotide® medication with every cycle. To learn more, fertilitylifelines.com.
