CareShare has been designed to reduce the financial and personal stress many infertility patients face with the goal to supply hopeful parents with peace of mind and the financial resources to pursue other family building options.
The challenges of combating infertility can be daunting, and Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California stands shoulder-to-shoulder with every client. The CareShare IVF refund program demonstrates that while we are focused on success, we also share in the risk of failure.
The CareShare Program costs $32,000 and includes up to six stimulated IVF cycles and the use of frozen embryo transfer in order to achieve one live birth delivery. Comprehensive Chromosome Screening (CCS) comes included in the package price. Eligible patients have 18 months from the date of the first cycle to complete all possible cycles offered by the program. Once a live birth is achieved and a birth certificate is issued, the program is considered closed and the patient benefit is considered exhausted.
It’s important to note that patients achieving a live birth on their first attempt will have paid more than a traditional “pay-as-you-go” cycle.
Speak with the primary RMA physician. They will work with patients to help determine eligibility based on clinical and other criteria. The CareShare refund program offers a generous patient inclusion criteria unique from other financial programs including:
Once a patient enrolls into the CareShare program, they will be required to waive insurance coverage for any service(s) provided as part of the CareShare package.
However, prior to enrollment in the program, a patient may be able to use the fertility benefit and coverage their insurance carrier provides. This may include an initial consultation with the physician, infertility work-up, and medication.
Prospective patients should also check with their insurance carriers to determine whether their health insurance plan covers IVF treatment.
Prior to a successful live birth, if a patient or Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California chooses to discontinue the program, a full or partial refund may be offered:
If a patient elects to stop treatment for any reason and does not have euploid (viable) embryos stored at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California, they will receive a refund of 50 percent of the fee paid.
If participation in the program is terminated by Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California, the patient will receive a refund of 100 percent of the paid fee.
If the patient elects to stop treatment for any reason and has euploid (viable) embryos stored at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California, they will not receive a refund.
Patients may incur some additional expenses, such as services not provided as part of the program or medications. Additional expenses outside of the CareShare Program are not included in the refund guarantee.
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Northern California shares the same path and goal as our clients: a live birth and birth certificate. CareShare serves as a 100 percent IVF refund program that offers multiple IVF cycles for a single-package price. After all attempts have been exhausted, if there is no live birth and no birth certificate issued, the patient will receive a 100 percent refund of the program fee.
CareShare can be ideal for patients who are paying out of pocket with no insurance coverage, or for those who have waived or exhausted their insurance benefits. Patients may be able to use their insurance benefits for pre-screening tests and medications.
