Expanded Fertility Treatment Discounts for Veterans Who Served in Iraq or Afghanistan

November 13, 2013

Special SALUTE Program Available Until January 31, 2014

FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As a special thank you to members of the military who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, The Genetics & IVF Institute (GIVF), is offering those who served in those areas double the discounts normally available to active duty and twenty-year retired military and their spouses on both traditional in vitro fertilization (IVF) and donor egg IVF fertility treatment, including some of GIVF’s outstanding refund and multicycle programs. “GIVF’s regular military discount program, SALUTE, offers excellent benefits,” says Laurence Udoff, M.D., a fertility specialist and Medical Director at GIVF, “but we want to do something very special for those who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan.” To enjoy the benefits of the enhanced program, patients must complete a consult with a GIVF physician by January 31, 2014.

    --  50% off the base fee of a single in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle
    --  10% off the base fee of a Multicycle or Donor Promise program for
        traditional IVF
    --  50% off the base fee for a single fresh donor egg sole or shared cycle
    --  10% off the base fee for a Multicycle or Delivery Promise program for
        fresh sole or shared donor eggs.
