GEN 5 FERTILITY CENTER
Gen 5 Fertility | San Diego, CA
One of the most essential goals of Gen 5 Fertility is to reduce the stress of achieving your dream of having a child. We do this in many ways, including helping you understand your financial options and providing you with the information you need to choose the right approach for you. To do that, we provide you with the comprehensive range of financial options that relate to you and then help you find the ones that are right for your current situation.
We know that sometimes it’s not easy to discuss financial matters. But at Gen 5, we do everything possible to make it as simple and straightforward as possible. After learning what your treatment options are, one of our financial coordinators will go over your options with you. If you have infertility coverage through your health insurance, we will make sure that you understand exactly what coverage they provide. In the end, you will make the choice that is right for you.
We offer many different treatment plans. Some involve initial fertility treatments that are simpler and less costly with more advanced treatments following, if those don’t succeed. Others provide for multiple treatment cycles which reduces the cost of each cycle. Still others involve working with third parties, such as egg donors or surrogates. At Gen 5 Fertility, almost anything you have in mind is a possibility.
In almost all cases, there is more than one way to overcome infertility. You will be provided with your full range of treatment options, the chance that each of these will work for you as well as financial aspects of each approach. We want to make sure that you fully understand all of potential options and the costs associated with each one.
For patients that do not currently have insurance coverage for infertility treatment or fertility preservation, G5F has carefully designed different discounted global cash packages to make fertility care more affordable and to cater to the varying needs of our patients.
Our packages offer several benefits. Based on the individualized treatment plan you have selected, you will be quoted a single fee which includes all services needed so you know, upfront, before you begin, what your costs will be. You can save significantly compared to paying for services individually which helps eliminate confusion and stress during the treatment process. Third-party reproduction approaches, including egg donation and surrogacy cycles, can be included in the packages as well. Multi-cycle plans are also offered in our packages. G5F accepts payments by cash, debit card, credit card, money order or wire transfer.
We will review your medical records and chat with you to thoroughly understand your fertility needs. We will then give you our initial thoughts on the right approach for you. After your consultation, our financial coordination team will follow up based on your tentative treatment plan to help you navigate through the financials. We will guide you how to best take advantage of your insurance coverage, our discounted global cash packages, or our financing options.
Sometimes fertility treatment is highly time-sensitive and your finances may seem to pose an obstacle, keeping you from initiating much-needed treatment. Gen 5 Fertility partners with carefully selected companies to offer fertility financing to our patients. This way the bulk of the upfront cost for treatment can be divided into simple, monthly payments. Our financing partners cover a wide range of services, including fertility treatment, ovarian rejuvenation, preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) and more. Once approved, any service you may need can be covered, allowing you to start your treatment right away with much less stress so you will enjoy a stress-free IVF journey.
Many U.S. employers now include either partial or full infertility treatment and fertility preservation benefits in their insurance group plans. Many patients we treated at G5F have had excellent insurance benefits to cover infertility testing and, in some cases, their fertility treatment as well. G5F is an in-network provider with Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Aetna, Cigna, and HealthNet.
We also facilitate billing and reimbursement for out-of-network benefits. At G5F, our financial coordination team will collect your insurance information prior to or at the time of your initial consultation. They will confirm for you exactly what benefits your insurance offers. We will obtain any pre-authorization for testing and treatment you may need so your treatment cycle will start both promptly and smoothly. We are here to help you take full advantage of your insurance coverage.
