BASKING RIDGE, N.J., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey, today announced the introduction of its new ReadyGO Donor Cycle Guarantee program designed to give couples faster access to donor eggs and multiple chances at IVF pregnancy success. Offered in partnership with NW Cryobank, a leader in frozen egg banking services based in Spokane, Washington, the ReadyGO program covers up to three withdrawals from NW Cryobank and the transfer of all embryos created from those eggs until a live birth is achieved. Should no live birth be achieved after all embryos created are transferred, a patient will receive a refund totaling about 80% of their initial outlay.
"ReadyGO was designed for donor recipients looking to cycle faster than a traditional fresh-donor approach, for which average wait lists can run nine months or more," said Thomas J. Kim, MD, FACOG, Director, Third Party Reproduction. "With the ReadyGO package, a patient can begin trying as early as her next cycle."
Added Dr. Kim, "ReadyGO offers a safe and effective path to pregnancy which can be put into place quickly and offers financial protection. A patient can undergo multiple cycles until a live birth is achieved, or until all embryos are transferred, for a single price."
"We are excited to partner with RMANJ to give patients participating in their donor egg program a faster solution to expand their family," said Tammy Zimmer, MT (ASCP), Managing Director, NW Cryobank. "Eggs from our donors listed on the NW Cryobank website are available immediately for donor recipients. All egg donors at NW Cryobank are medically, genetically and psychologically screened to ensure the best possible outcomes as part of the ReadyGO Donor Cycle Guarantee."
Through the new program, patients are able to pay a package price which covers up to three withdrawals from NW Cryobank and the transfer of all embryos created from those eggs until a live birth is achieved. With RMANJ single cycle delivery rates in the 60% range (www.sart.org), many ReadyGO patients will achieve pregnancy in one cycle. Their cost at that point will have run about 35% more than a traditional "pay as you go" donor cycle, but they will have shortened their time to cycle by as many as nine months or more. If pregnancy is not achieved during the first cycle attempted, a patient can move quickly to the next cycle; after two attempts the cumulative delivery rates approach 80% and there is a cost savings over the "pay as you go" method of about 30%. If a third cycle is needed, patients have a greater than 85% chance of delivery at approximately half the cost of three "pay as you go" cycles. Should live birth not be achieved after all embryos created are transferred, a patient will receive a refund totaling about 80% of their initial outlay.
ReadyGO cannot be combined with insurance. Additional costs for medications and other service fees such as anesthesia may still apply. For more information, visit www.rmanj.com/readygo.
