Progyny, a fertility benefits manager, is also streamlining fertility treatment and removing hurdles like the “trying naturally” commandments. Its clients, including Unilever, MassMutual, Viacom and Cerner, also pay for genetic screening of embryos, with a typical cost of about $5,000, which helps identify genetic diseases and the embryos that are most likely to lead to a miscarriage.

“A traditional health plan from a company that offers [what some would consider] ‘decent benefits’ though their health insurer would be a $20,000 lifetime maximum benefit. But it could have all these pre certification protocols where you might [have to do] three to six rounds of [intrauterine insemination] before they even let you try IVF, and at that point you’ve used up almost your entire benefit,” said David Schlanger, CEO of Progyny.
