Success Guarantee Plans
Success Guarantee Plans
We want to partner with you in achieving our shared goal of pregnancy success. Because we believe in our outstanding clinical expertise and pregnancy success statistics, we offer risk sharing, or Success Guarantee, financial plans.
Our Success Guarantee Plans are based on the principle of mutual commitment. If you do not achieve a live birth after completing a Success Guarantee cycle, you will be reimbursed up to 100 percent of the cycle fee.
If you do not achieve pregnancy through the initial IVF cycle, the Success Guarantee plans include fees to transfer all frozen embryos generated from the initial IVF cycle. That is a $3,960 value for each frozen embryo transfer.
As an additional benefit of the Success Guarantee plans, we have established a medication subsidy. If your first cycle is unsuccessful, SDFC will supply the FSH medications for your second IVF cycle for free.
Our Success Guarantee Plans offer peace of mind, cost savings and the opportunity to achieve your goal of a baby or up to 100% of your cycle fees refunded. We hope that these plans offer you another financial option, while emphasizing our commitment to shared success in achieving your goal, a baby for you.
