Medication discounts for IVF provide financial help
More than half of people who need fertility treatment have no insurance coverage for fertility medications or care. At our Louisiana IVF centers, we believe that fertility treatment should be accessible to anyone who needs it. To help reduce the cost of IVF for self-pay patients, we offer financial help for IVF through two free medication discount programs, DesignRX First Steps and Serono Compassionate Care.
Both programs negotiate with fertility pharmaceutical manufacturers through a network of nationwide specialty pharmacies, creating programs that help make fertility treatment more affordable for patients whose insurance doesn’t cover fertility drugs. The programs are income-based financial assistance programs that can help IVF patients save up to 75% on certain fertility medications.

If your fertility medications are not covered by private or public insurance plans, or reimbursed under a federal or state healthcare program, you may be eligible for discounts through DesignRX First Steps or Serono Compassionate Care through our Louisiana IVF centers.
The programs take into account your household income and any hardships. This financial help for IVF is only open to cash-pay patients. Depending on your income, you may qualify for discounts of 5%, 25%, 50% or 75% off the cost of certain fertility medications.

To take advantage of financial help for IVF, you must purchase your fertility medications through one of Serono’s or DesignRX’s specialty network pharmacies. Discounts available through the programs are in addition to existing cash prices, which are typically 15% to 30% lower than other specialty pharmacies. Discounts cannot be combined with any other rebate, coupon or special offer.
To qualify for financial help for IVF through the DesignRX program, you must first be approved through an easy and free, online eligibility process. All active military and veterans will be automatically approved for special savings. You can also apply for special financial assistance if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and are seeking fertility preservation. Once your eligibility is verified, you’ll be able to access your discount for up to one year.
