Listen Up! It’s National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW)

Listen up! It’s National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), a week to highlight infertility, the causes and treatments available. According to Resolve, the National Infertility Association, 1 in 8 couples will experience infertility. The goal of NIAW–Listen up! (April 23-29) is to bring this statistic to the forefront so couples struggling can realize that they are not alone in their infertility journey. The Fertility Center of Charleston and Dr. Stephanie Singleton support this initiative through educating physicians and staff with personal visits during the week, sharing testimonials from patients that have experienced infertility, highlighting treatments available and the cost savings programs in place for couples facing fertility treatments.

 

The Fertility Center of Charleston, with locations in Savannah and Charleston, has a dedicated financial counselor who educates patients on fertility costs. TFCOC has saved patients more than $100,000 in medication savings in the last year! Dr. Singleton encourages couples to ask questions and meet with a financial counselor before assuming the cost of their treatments, as each case varies. TFCOC has many programs in place to help save on medications and offset the cost: http://www.fertilitycharleston.com/affording-treatment/

 

One example is ARC Financial and Refund programs.  TFCOC understands that choosing the right fertility treatment can be overwhelming and works with ARC to provide patients with the most affordable options through financial programs and refund packages.  TFCOC and ARC are committed to making the cost of fertility treatments predictable and affordable. In addition, The Fertility Center of Charleston has a Compassionate Corps program in place for military and veteran patients.  Through this program our military can save on medication costs.

 

The Fertility Center of Charleston will highlight all aspects of infertility throughout NIAW on their social media outlets and website. Dr. Singleton kicked off the week by hosting the annual Baby Party, a time for all graduated patients to come together and celebrate their families in place thanks to fertility treatments. As part of Listen Up!–NIAW, there will be several opportunities to share infertility journeys and read personal testimonials via social media.  TFCOC will also be posting pictures of graduated TFCOC babies on social media and highlighting various services provided such as IVF, HSG testing and cryopreservation (egg freezing).
