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 many couples, coming up with the funds to pay for treatment not covered under their medical insurance can be a huge strain on finances and emotions.
We feel strongly that couples, no matter their financial limitations or lack of infertility insurance coverage, should have HOPE to build their families. That’s why we created the Gift of Hope in 2006. This program helps infertile couples in Louisiana overcome these barriers to building their families through the gift of an in vitro fertilization cycle.
Find out if you are eligible to apply.
Since 2006, there have been 18 Louisiana couples chosen for the Gift of Hope IVF grant, and nine babies have been born to Gift of Hope IVF and IUI recipients! The combined value of donated services for a single Gift of Hope IVF grant is estimated at $15,000. Additionally, since 2006 the doctors have also awarded several couples the gift of intrauterine inseminations (IUI), a less costly and less invasive fertility procedure. Over the years, Fertility Answers and its partners have donated over $300,000 in services and medications.
Donors include Fertility Answers, Ovation Fertility, Louisiana Anesthesiology, and many of our pharmaceutical partners.
