Fertility Financing & Grants

If your insurance does not cover infertility treatments

We have been helping couples build their families for decades. We have learned that it is very common that the time-sensitive nature of the treatments we offer, as well as limited insurance coverage in Ohio for fertility treatments, can make it difficult for most patients to afford the treatment they need to do when they want to do it. 

For that reason, we offer you some guidance about programs that we know have been able to help other patients like you in a similar situation. Even if you have some insurance benefits in your plan, there might be additional, unexpected expenses with certain medications or procedures that are not covered, and you might want to be more prepared. If you know your options, you will be more empowered to make the right decisions for you and proceed with the treatment that feels right for your goals.

Please look at this list of potential resources as a start, and then do not hesitate to come back to us with any questions!

Note: We do not endorse any of these entities, nor can we guarantee that your application will be successful; this is simply a list of resources we make available to you based on reviews from patients and colleagues.
