“As women become mothers later in life, and more single people and same-sex couples want to start families, fertility treatments are becoming more common. The problem is that the process isn’t getting any easier. Offering help and transparency to this audience is the goal of Progyny. The New York City-based company is a fertility benefits start-up that offers plans to large, self-insured companies to help their employees cover the cost for fertility treatments.”

“Facebook – whose fertility benefits are administered by Progyny – added the benefit in response to employee demand. It opted to cover four cycles versus a lump sum to allow patients and doctors to make treatment decisions based on what’s likely to have the best outcome – more healthy babies, said Renee Albert, Facebook’s benefits director.”
