Starting the Fertility Treatment Process
The first step is to check with your insurance carrier to determine if you need a referral from your OB-GYN or primary care practitioner. Then email us, or call 800-865-5431, to schedule a new patient appointment at one of our fertility treatment centers listed below.
Oftentimes our new patients have had a preliminary work-up performed elsewhere. This may include:
- Estradiol, FSH, and progesterone blood levels
- Hysterosalpinogram or sonohysterogram films/pictures or radiology report
- Semen analysis results
- Records pertaining to previous IVF or IUI cycles, including infectious disease testing, oocyte stimulation and embryology lab records.
If you have had any of these tests or procedures, please bring the results with you. We also encourage you to bring your partner so he or she can be a part of the process from the very beginning.
Your first visit to our fertility treatment center will last between two and two-and-a-half hours. During that time you’ll meet with your physician, who will review your records and ask questions about your medical and reproductive history and your family building goals. Most new patient consultations include a physical exam, transvaginal ultrasound, and blood work. Together, you and your physician will review the subsequent steps on your path to fertility.
While at the treatment center you’ll also be introduced to your Patient Care Team, which includes your assigned nurse, patient coordinator, and financial services representative. Our nurses work closely with our physicians to ensure that your individualized fertility treatment plan is followed. This includes going over your infertility treatment options, educating you on the different medications, protocols and testing you may need to have performed, and making sure you understand the process.
Your patient coordinator will be your primary contact at RMACT. She’ll schedule all tests, appointments and surgery, if needed. Your patient coordinator works with both your nurse and physician to ensure that your entire cycle goes as smoothly as possible.
Your financial services representative will review your insurance benefits, the cost of fertility treatment, any pre-authorization that will be required for treatment, and payment options that may be available to you.
