New York, NY, Fertility Guide
New York City offers a tremendous variety of fertility treatments and fertility clinics. You should have no problem finding a New York fertility doctor who can provide whatever fertility treatment you are seeking.
There are 18 fertility clinics in New York City and its boroughs, plus another 14 across the state of New York. As you chose among them and look at information about treatments and success rates, remember that each fertility clinic has different strengths. You should try to choose the New York fertility clinic that you feel most comfortable with and that is strong in treating your infertility diagnosis.
Though New York does have some provisions in place, there are many fertility treatments that are not covered under mandated insurance coverage. IVF, gamete intrafallopian tube transfers (GIFT), and zygote intrafallopian tube transfers (ZIFT) are among the procedures that are not covered. However, New York does have a fairly unique program for eligible residents that provides grants for IVF. Many fertility clinics have a variety of other payment options as well, so you should never automatically assume that you cannot afford IVF if you live in New York and your private insurance does not cover the treatment you need.
Fertility treatment information and statistics from individual New York City-area fertility clinics are available in the most recent Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report, which is compiled by the CDC.
