At Fertility Specialists of Texas, we want to help our heroes in uniform.

In the U.S general population, 1 in 8 couples will experience infertility. Our veterans may have to cope with additional issues related to an injury suffered in the line of duty that affects fertility; besides the routine causes of infertility.

Fertility Specialists of Texas has strategically partnered with EMD Serono and is pleased to support these two programs – Compassionate Care and Compassionate Corps that can help provide a substantial fertility medication discount for military families.

Compassionate Care Program

The Compassionate Care program makes available fertility medication discounts for all military families. In order to be able to utilize this program military families cannot have other insurance for fertility medications. Once the patient applies for the Compassionate Care Program they receive an automatic discount of at least 25% off of the self-pay price of EMD Serono medications. This discount could increase to as much as 75%, depending on financial eligibility criteria.

Compassionate Corps

Compassionate Corps, is an extension of the EMD Serono’s Compassionate Care program and plugs the gap for retired veterans and their spouses who are dealing with infertility because of a service related injury.

Qualifying veterans and their spouses may receive free fertility medication thru the Compassionate Corps program.

Who can Qualify for Compassionate Corps Benefits?

Any retired, injured male or female who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and experiences infertility related to their military injury may be eligible for the Compassionate Corps program if they do not already have other insurance that covers fertility medications.

This program covers fertility medications related to an IVF treatment for up to 2 treatments per year.
