New York State Infertility Demonstration Program

Are You Eligible To Receive a Grant from New York State for your IVF treatment?

If you possess insurance but do not have infertility coverage or have exhausted your infertility benefits, you may qualify to receive financial assistance for your in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment through the New York State Infertility Demonstration Program.

In 2002, New York State passed legislation to provide this Infertility Demonstration Program, which is allocated to select centers meeting high standards of IVF success rates and patient volume. Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York is among these select centers selected to participate in the infertility grant to provide funding to eligible patients in need of infertility treatment. The grant helps subsidize payments for most services associated with IVF, including patient assessment (1 allowed per patient for the life of the grant) and the IVF cycle (maximum of 2 complete cycles for the life of the grant). The amount of treatment funding provided to the eligible individual/couple is based on the individual/couple’s combined household income; coverage can range from 2.5% up to 97.5% of IVF treatment costs.

Infertility treatment services that may be covered within the cycle are:

Exclusions from this treatment subsidy include ovum donation fees, ovulation induction, general gynecologic care,preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD), and surgery.
