HRC Fertility Helps Active Duty Military and Veterans Build Their Families Through Expanded Military Discount Program
The “Honor our Military Heroes” Program Includes Comprehensive IVF Discounts
Pasadena, CA: HRC Fertility (HRC), the largest provider of advanced fertility treatment in Southern California, has reaffirmed its commitment to helping our nation’s heroes with its newly expanded “Honor our Military Heroes” program. HRC’s nine locations now offer their IVF (in vitro fertilization) discount program to all active duty military personnel, reservists, National Guard members and veterans and their spouses. This new program provides military personnel with a 40 percent discount for a variety of IVF services.
IVF is a very successful form of infertility treatment, but many insurance plans do not cover treatment, including TRICARE for active duty military. HRC’s goal is to relieve some of the financial burdens from couples who are left to pay out-of-pocket for their infertility treatment.
“We have an obligation to assist the brave men and women who risked their lives fighting for our country. They deserve the chance to become parents if they are having trouble conceiving,” said Dr. Jane Frederick, Orange County medical director. “With ‘Honor our Military Heroes,’ we are able to deepen the discounts for IVF as well as grow this unique program for different categories of service members.”
HRC physicians are excited to provide significantly more access to IVF treatment to the more than 600,000 veterans residing in San Diego and Los Angeles County, many of whom are in their prime childbearing years. San Diego also has the nation’s largest concentration of military personnel, including 100,000 active duty members.
To qualify for the military discount, the patient or spouse needs to show identification as proof of their involvement with the U.S. Armed Forces.
“I’m proud of my husband, who continues to serve or country through the Navy Reserve,” said Dr. Frederick patient Elizabeth Yi. “We’re equally grateful to HRC for honoring the military discount for reserve families so that we can start our family. Thank you, Dr. Frederick and team for your gentle, compassionate care. This truly means everything to us!”
