To say it’s a struggle to pay for IVF while meeting the high cost of living on Long Island is an understatement. It can take some couples without IVF medical coverage a few years to save up for an IVF cycle…ever aware of the ticking biological clock.

Extreme, long-term sacrifices are made. A dream is put on hold. Everyone else is pregnant.

It’s enough to make a couple, well, jaded.

But sometimes, “jaded” can be a good thing…

Long Island IVF is pleased to announce the availability of yet another IVF grant…the Jade Foundation IVF Grant…to help suffering infertile couples build their families.

Through an endowment from generous benefactors, the Jade Foundation IVF Grant was created for and is offered exclusively at Long Island IVF. It is funded to provide financial assistance to couples who lack insurance coverage to meet the IVF cycle expenses needed to build the family of their dreams.  Qualified patients will pay a cost share amount (their out-of-pocket expense) based on total household income level.

Funding through this grant program will be allocated for basic services related to an IVF fresh cycle (and exclude other types of treatment cycles such as: frozen cycles, egg donation cycles, surrogacy cycles, elective egg freezing cycles as well as the more complex embryology services such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis or screening (PGD /PGS ). Priority is given to first time parents and to those who have served or are currently serving in the US military.

Eligibility: In order to be eligible, applicants must:

  • be less than 35 years of age;
  • have documented infertility;
  • meet clinical criteria;
  • be residents of Long Island, Queens or Brooklyn; and
  • have a combined household income between $50,000 and $99,999 annually; and
  • have commercial medical insurance coverage which either does not cover IVF treatments or for which they have exhausted their benefits.

Application Process: If new to our practice, interested patients should contact the Long Island New Patient Counselor at (631) 752-0606. Patients who are already in treatment with us should contact their Long Island IVF Financial Counselor to learn more about this grant.  Although there is no required application form, applicants must submit proof of residency and income. Grant awards are contingent upon grant funding availability. Unlike loans, the funds provided to couples through this Jade Foundation IVF Grant program do not have to be paid back.

Just a point of clarification…

The Jade Foundation IVF Grant is exclusively available at and through Long Island IVF. It should not be confused with the Cade Foundation’s IVF grants, which are also wonderful opportunities for infertile folks nationwide to build their families. That said, please see below for news on how you can have a great night out and also qualify to win a Free IVF cycle door prize donated by Long Island IVF in its “Brew For The Family” event on June 4th, co-sponsored by Cade. (Confusing, right?) But it’s all good stuff.

Whether you go for Jade, or Cade, or both, we look forward to seeing you soon.
