Fertility Drug Discounts
Three major fertility drug companies — EMD Serono, Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and Merck — offer special programs that lessen the cost of many of the most common medications used in fertility treatments today.
Discounts on Gonal-F
A call to EMD Serono’s Fertility Lifelines (866-LETS-TRY or www.fertilitylifelines.com) gives you access to a Benefits Coordinator who can provide you with more information about affording treatment. Their special medication savings program called FertilityAssist 2 allows health care providers to enroll their cash-paying patients for discounts on Gonal-F. By simply placing a sticker on the Gonal-F order and filling the prescription though the online specialty pharmacy Freedom Fertility Pharmacy, patients receive savings on their first cycle. If you need a second cycle of Gonal-F, you can save another $250 to $500 depending on the amount of Gonal-F needed. Additionally, EMD Serono offers the Compassionate Care program which allows some patients with no insurance coverage and documented medical and financial need to receive EMD Serono medications free of charge.
Savings on Bravelle and Menopur
Ferring Fertility offers the HEART Program (which stands for Helping Expand Access to Reproductive Therapy). This program is specifically designed for patients who do not have insurance coverage or benefits for fertility medications and covers medications like Bravelle and Menopur. If you are interested in this program, ask your health care provider for a HEART Rx Initiative brochure or contact Ferring directly at www.ferringfertility.com/heart or 888-FERRING. To receive your discount, you will need to fill your prescription at a participating pharmacy (for a pharmacy near you, click here). Although it costs $10 for a one-year HEART Program membership, you can save $18 on every vial of Bravelle (up to 100 vials) and up to $3 on every vial of Menopur (up to 100 vials). This can result in a total savings of $2,100.
