RMA of Central Pennsylvania at PinnacleHealth believes it is important for patients to understand all aspects of fertility treatment. We encourage everyone to ask questions, learn about infertility and treatment options, and work closely with our doctors so each patient can be informed and make the best possible decisions for his/her family. Because cost can be a deciding factor, our financial coordinators meet with each patient – even before treatment begins – to help explain insurance coverage and benefits, and to answer any questions.
Treatment Packages and Discount Programs
RMA of Central Pennsylvania at PinnacleHealth offers a number of treatment packages and discount programs to help patients control the costs of fertility treatment.
Our treatment packages include intrauterine insemination (IUI) cycles as well as in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. We offer multi-cycle packages for patients who require IVF. Our financial coordinators can provide information on all of these options and assist in determining the best approach as each patient moves forward in this process.
RMAssure™ (Refund Guarantee Program)
Patients who choose the RMAssure™ option may attempt up to six fresh IVF cycles including ICSI, for a flat fee, excluding medication. If, after six fresh IVF cycle attempts, the patient does not take a baby home from the hospital, the RMAssure™ option guarantees 100% refund. During the application process, the patient must meet specific age and health criteria and be recommended for the RMAssure™ option by an RMA physician.
