Did you know that 1 in 8 American couples struggle with infertility each year, yet only a quarter of healthcare insurers offer coverage for infertility care? For a young couple just starting out in life, coming up with the money to pay for treatment not covered under their medical insurance can be a huge strain on finances and emotions.
The doctors at Fertility Answers feel strongly that couples, no matter their financial limitations or lack of infertility insurance coverage, should have the chance to build their families. That’s why they created the Gift of Hope, now in its 12th year, to help infertile couples in Louisiana overcome these barriers to building their families through the gift of an in vitro fertilization cycle.
Don’t let finances or your lack of insurance coverage get in the way of building your family. Find out if you are eligible to apply for this year’s Gift of Hope. Since 2006, there have been 14 Louisiana couples chosen for the Gift of Hope, eight of which conceived and five babies have been born as a result! The combined value of donated services for the Gift of Hope is estimated at $10,000 to $15,000.
Donors include Fertility Answers, Women’s & Children’s Hospital, Sheridan Healthcare, and Louisiana Anesthesiology.
Applications for the Gift of Hope 2017 will be available beginning March 1. Application deadline is May 11, 2017.
