DENVER, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CCRM (Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine), one of the leading fertility centers in the U.S., today announced an alliance with premier fertility benefits company Progyny, Inc., designed to expand access to state-of-the-art fertility care through employer-funded benefits. The relationship with Progyny enables prospective parents to tap CCRM's network of world-class physicians, innovative technology and cutting-edge labs, as well as its full suite of fertility services that includes in vitro fertilization (IVF), fertility assessment, fertility preservation and in-house genetic testing.
One in eight couples in the U.S. is impacted by infertility, making fertility issues the third largest global epidemic. Fortunately, advancements in fertility science, research and development allow individuals and couples to pursue comprehensive fertility care and treatment. At CCRM, this includes custom-tailored analyses and treatments aimed at ensuring the best possible outcome. Founded by Dr. William Schoolcraft in 1987, CCRM is widely known to deliver some of the highest success rates in the industry.
"At CCRM, we are dedicated to delivering personalized service and leading patient outcomes for individuals and couples who want to have a baby. While many people are impacted by infertility, we understand that fertility treatments aren't financially realistic for everyone," said Jon Pardew, president and CEO of CCRM. "We are proud to partner with Progyny to offer individuals and couples facing infertility with better access to industry-leading fertility care."
As a member of the growing Progyny network, CCRM will now accept Progyny's all-inclusive fertility benefits. The comprehensive treatment bundles include coverage of CCRM's most advanced fertility treatments including, but not limited to:
- In vitro fertilization (IVF)
- Intrauterine insemination
- Fresh or frozen embryo transfer
- Genetic screening
- Egg freezing
- Consultation and diagnostic testing
CCRM's alliance with Progyny allows physicians and patients to pursue the most effective treatment, the first time, and patients and employers to receive the most value from their fertility benefit.
Progyny-covered services may vary based on the employer sponsoring the benefit plan. All Progyny patients (new or existing at a clinic) must first call their Progyny Patient Care Advocate (PCA) for authorization before scheduling an appointment with CCRM.
