If you know someone who struggles with infertility, you might be trying to figure out what to say, or how to help them. This article will give you a bit of insight into their experience, and what you can say, or AVOID saying, to comfort them.
EMD Serono, a pharmaceutical company that manufactures many of the drugs prescribed to assist in fertility treatments, has created a discount program to offset out-of-pocket costs for self-pay patients and military veterans. It is very simple to apply, and you receive your discount in a matter of days. The program is well known with specialty pharmacies, and easy to use. We used it – it was quick, simple, and saved us several hundred dollars.
This list, compiled by RESOLVE, is comprised of nonprofits that provide grants and financial assistance to pay for medical treatments and/or fertility medications.
