COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorado active duty and retired military service members with Tricare insurance can now receive fertility care from a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist (RE&I) in Colorado. Typically, these soldiers would only have access to an OB/GYN for infertility challenges.
"I am thrilled to give American heroes the specialized care they need to grow their families," said Dr. Paul Magarelli, reproductive endocrinologist and founder of Magarelli Fertility. The center has cared for military families since 1998 and provides a range of free services to military personnel, including sperm freezing.
Magarelli explained that few private centers worldwide can provide RE&I care to military families through the Tricare program.
Tricare covers a range of fertility services to treat infertility challenges resulting from illness or injury occurring during military service, including:
- Sperm retrieval
- Egg retrieval
- In vitro fertilization (IVF)
- Artificial insemination
- Blastocyst implantation
- Cryopreservation and embryo storage
"My father was a POW during WWII, so I've always felt loyalty and gratitude for our military," Magarelli said. "I'm always looking for ways to give soldiers and retired soldiers the care they need. There are so many technological solutions to effectively treat infertility these days, these heroes should be first in line."
Magarelli co-founded US Military Family Fertility Services, a 501(c)3 nonprofit supporting grants and education for active duty military families seeking fertility help. Active and retired military seeking the care of a specialist can contact him and discuss fertility options at 877.475.BABY.
