We do everything that we can to help bring a baby into your life. Part of caring for your whole person includes offering you methods to help ease the financial strain of treatments and make fertility more affordable. We invite you to explore these trusted resources that can reduce the total amount that you pay for your treatments and medications.

Financing Your Fertility Treatment

Fertility Centers of Illinois offers several payment options through our partnerships with fertility financing specialists. We offer the most comprehensive options available with customized loan programs, refund plans, and even a pay out-of-pocket discount. All to meet your individual needs and help ease the financial stress of treatments.

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. Knowing that several rounds are covered by your plan can eliminate worry and allow you to commit to the full treatment plan that your body requires. In fact, 80 percent of Attain participants who complete their treatment plan take home a baby.

More cycles equals a better chance of success; this program provides many opportunities to succeed, and the peace of mind that results from knowing you haven’t put all your eggs in one basket. When it comes to something this important you can’t afford to fail.

Multi-Cycle Discount Program
We all share the same goal – for you to bring home a baby. The Multi-Cycle Discount Program can help you do just that, while simplifying the financial side of things.

Everyone is unique and many elements come into play, but the fact is that approximately 50% of women who choose IVF will not become pregnant on their first try. The Multi-Cycle Discount Program allows for the transfer of all resulting embryos when you choose either two or three egg retrievals, as well as an unlimited number of Frozen Embryo Transfers (FETs).

Multi-Cycle Discount Program + REFUND

Infertility is stressful enough, figuring out how to pay for treatment shouldn’t freak you out even more. The Multi-Cycle Discount Program + REFUND was created to help.

Statistics show that approximately 50% of women who try IVF won’t become pregnant on the first cycle. Our program allows for the transfer of all resulting embryos when you choose either two or three egg retrievals, as well as an unlimited number of Frozen Embryo Transfers (FETs). More cycles = more chances to succeed.

We know this journey is different for everyone so we’ve added a refund layer to our Multi-Cycle Discount Program. Patients who meet certain medical criteria may be able to get a refund if their path to parenthood takes an unexpected turn and they don’t have a baby.

Those who qualify may be eligible for:

• Up to a 50% Refund: Patients who choose a two-cycle plan.
• Up to a 100% Refund: Patients who choose a three-cycle plan.

Patients feel a sense of peace knowing they have multiple opportunities to make their dream of having a baby come true. And if, despite everyone’s best efforts, it doesn’t happen? Many choose to use their refund to pay back their loan, or pursue other options, such as adoption, for growing their family.

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.
