The ARC Fertility Program offers treatment package pricing, including up to three live cycles plus three frozen cycles from a nationwide network of physicians and clinics. A refund guarantee is available if treatment is not successful. The predetermined pricing of ARC treatment packages varies from practice to practice. Package pricing is also available for other reproductive treatments for both men and women. Patients pay in advance of treatment, and ARC makes payments directly to the doctor. Package pricing is determined by each patient’s medical history. The ARC Pharmacy Plan™ offers the patient the ability to purchase and finance medications.

The Assure IVF Refund Program allows patients to pay a discounted fee for up to three fresh and three frozen cycles. If a successful birth has not been achieved after completing the allotted cycles, the patient will receive a refund of 80% to 100% of their program fees (patient and treatment dependent). The Assure IVF Program has partnered with American Healthcare Lending, providing a financing option to fund their participation in the program. Their website provides greater details.
CareShare is designed to reduce the financial stress and worry that many infertility patients face. The CareShare program includes up to 6 IVF cycles for a single package price. If a live birth is not achieved, you will receive a 100% refund of your program fee. CareShare may not be offered at every RMA practice. Please speak with your provider at your local office to see if they offer the CareShare Program. To learn more, visit the website.
WINFertility Treatment Program offers self-pay patients to pay a single, discounted treatment bundle fee that includes both the medical treatment and the infertility medications required.

The Shared Risk 100% Refund Program allows patients to attempt up to six IVF or donor egg cycles and any subsequent frozen embryo transfers (FETs) for a flat fee. When patients take a baby home from the hospital, the clinic has earned the fee. In the event the attempts are unsuccessful, patients will receive a 100 percent refund of the fee. Some costs not included in this program are: normal pre-screening tests, medication, surgeries not related to IVF, recruitment or purchase fees for donor sperm or donor egg.
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine Ethics Committee has determined these plans can be ethical if: It is clear to patients that they will be paying a higher cost for IVF if they in fact succeed on the first or second cycle than if they had not chosen the shared-risk program, and that, in any event, the costs of screening and drugs are not included.
Fertility Within Reach encourages patients to read the fine print.
