-- Georgia Reproductive Specialists is proud to now offer a 40% military discount to all active duty, retired, National Guard and reserve military members. The current economic downturn in conjunction with limited access to specialized medicine within the military was a major influence in approving the discount along with a new price of $9,500 for an IVF cycle.
Molly Kaufman, wife of Lt Col Matthew Kaufman (US Army,
ret), says “In my late twenties and early thirties I had a tough time maintaining pregnancies. Between my recurrent pregnancy loss and my husband juggling deployments, it was a span of eleven years before we had children. After three miscarriages, I was ready to give up hope on ever having children.”
Like so many other couples, Molly and Matt kept trying, knowing that other options were not attainable. “I read many articles on the availability of infertility treatments, but the cost of any treatment for us was so far out of our savings or budget, it wasn’t something we could ever explore. A discount like this means real options for military families who would not normally be a candidate simply due to financial constraints,”
Dr. Desireé McCarthy-Keith, a reproductive endocrinologist at Georgia Reproductive Specialists, understands the hurdles most military couples face when trying to overcome infertility. “I had the privilege of helping uniformed service members build their families during my time at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center. I witnessed firsthand the importance of family to those who sacrifice so much for our country and am honored to provide affordable fertility care for members of our United States military,” says Dr. McCarthy-Keith.
The military discount will be offered on all consultations and treatments, excluding outside lab work. A valid military ID is required at the time of service to receive the discount.
