Growing Fertility Coverage
Fertility benefits are on the rise

- 81% of employers who offer fertility benefits plan to extend these benefits
- Increasing awareness driving inclusion in healthcare benefits
(Wills Towers, Watson, Best Practices in Health Care Employer, 22nd Annual survey, 2017)
Coverage results in healthier women and babies, and reduces health care costs
- Coverage results in healthier women and babies (New England Journal of Medicine, August 2002)
- Implementation of a public IVF program favoring single embryo transfer not only sharply decreases the incidence of multiple pregnancy, but also reduces the cost per live birth (Human Reproduction, June 2014)
Employee perspective of fertility benefits
ARC Fertility joined forces with Resolve, The National Infertility Association, and EMD Serono, to survey 702 employees anonymously who had at least one in-vitro fertilization (IVF) egg retrieval in the U.S. They assessed how infertility benefits offered as part of their employee’s health insurance impacted their relationship with their employer. (July/August 2016). This survey showed that people needing IVF with employer-provided infertility/IVF health insurance have higher satisfaction with their employer; they were less likely to miss work because of infertility, more likely to recommend their company as a good place to work, and they felt more loyal to their employer.
Why The ARC Fertility Employer Program Is Right For Your Company
ARC Fertility was founded in 1997 by Dr. David Adamson, an internationally-recognized leader in fertility medicine. ARC Fertility has assisted over 70,000+ patients to achieve their goal of building a family. Today the ARC® Fertility Network comprises leading physicians in 220 locations in the U.S. to ensure your employees have access to the best clinical care in a region close to their home. Dr. Adamson remains a practicing board certified reproductive endocrinologist and a Clinical Professor at Stanford University and University of California San Francisco, as well as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at ARC Fertility.
All ARC Fertility services are available to your employees whether you provide full or partial subsidy, or even no subsidy, to support their fertility treatment. If you do provide a fertility benefit amount, ARC Fertility will ensure your employee maximizes the value from that contribution with the goal of achieving a healthy live birth.
The goal is a healthy singleton baby, but the cost of an IVF cycle can drive a couple to transfer multiple embryos with the risk of getting twins or even triplets. This can lead to serious and expensive health complications for mother and babies which are then paid by the employer medical benefits. The impact of multiple births on employers can be absenteeism, lost productively and short and long-term disability. The ARC Employer Program is focused on good outcomes and streamlined concierge employee support for effective use of benefits provided.
ARC concierge services provide your employees with educational programs, web portal access to people and information, and telehealth service for their convenience during treatment. We welcome the opportunity to provide tailored programs that address your employee needs and your company benefit goals.
Having a family is fundamental to the lives of many American women and men. Being unable to have a child is life-altering and causes significant disruption to people’s personal and work lives. Fertility coverage not only increases the chance of having a family but brings non-medical benefits to the people directly involved, their families and their employers.
