Center for Human Reproduction
The Center for Human Reproduction (CHR) is a premier fertility clinic in New York, NY, and is one of the first IVF centers established in the United States. CHR has gained national and international recognition as the infertility center of last resort for patients from all over the world, as CHR physicians gained expertise in treating the most difficult and complex cases of infertility.
While offering all aspects of modern infertility care, CHR has, through extensive research efforts, developed special knowledge and expertise in treating diminished ovarian reserve, a classic finding in older women or in younger women with prematurely aging ovaries. Approximately one half of all patients come to CHR’s Manhattan, New York City, location from other states and overseas. CHR has developed an international following thanks to its expertise in treating the most difficult cases of infertility. Treatment of premature ovarian aging (POA) is only one such areas of CHR expertise.
CHR's renowned physicians have continuously led the way in advances in reproductive medicine. They are extensively published in fertility research and are regularly invited to present their infertility research at conferences around the world.
In March 2005, CHR announced a dramatic improvement in response to ovarian stimulation after supplementation with dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in a scientific report in the April 2005 issue of Fertility and Sterility. Since then, CHR's fertility experts have continued to work with women with diminished ovarian reserve and have developed effective IVF treatment protocols augmented with DHEA supplementation.
CHR is not only a comprehensive IVF center in New York for both female infertility and male infertility, but also a research and educational organization. CHR’s rigorous fertility research program has led to many breakthroughs that are applicable to clinical fertility treatments, and CHR has been organizing one of the largest Continuing Medical Education lecture series in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility for over 20 years.

The Center for Human Reproduction accepts several forms of payment for services rendered. If you do not have adequate insurance, the following means of payment are available to you:
- Cash, Check or Money Order
- Shared Cost (Refund) Program - a payment option in which qualified patients and their physicians share in the financial risk. CHR offers three different Shared Cost programs. One is the traditional IVF- refund program, which is also extended to egg donor cycles. In a second refund program, CHR offers traditional pre-IVF treatment for a number of cycles, though the fertility center no longer recommends such a treatment approach because of its high risk for multiple births. And finally, in a third program that is not a refund program, CHR offers up to one year of traditional treatment at a preset price.
Patients with PPO Out-of-Network
As long as a patient has infertility benefits, even if CHR is NOT in their insurance provider network, the patient usually has OUT OF NETWORK BENEFITS. The patient's insurance usually reimburses at 60% plus deductible if any. This means the patient will only need to pay the deductible plus 20%. For further clarification, please contact CHR.
If you are uninsured or fail to provide CHR with adequate billing information, you will be considered a self-pay patient. We do offer, special, discounted IVF Pricing for self-pay patients. Self-pay patients are responsible for full payment of services rendered. Self-pay accounts not receiving payment within 30 days will be considered past due and subject to immediate collection activity.
Members of Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO) or Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO) are subject to specific procedures that require you to present your plan identification card upon registration. Whether or not CHR is contracted with your HMO/PPO, an authorization to receive services is usually required. Prior to your registration, you should have obtained any necessary authorizations or certifications. Failure to present this information and the necessary authorizations/certifications may make you ineligible for coverage under you plan.
