dr. schmidt is a graduate of new york university school of medicine. she completed her obstetrics/gynecology residency and her clinical and research fellowship in reproductive endocrinology infertility at new york university medical center. her pioneering work in ivf and assisted reproductive technologies (art) began in 1982 as a faculty member at the university of texas medical school at houston, one of the first three ivf facilities in the united states.
we believe infertility is a medical diagnosis that should be covered, no matter what. unfortunately, many providers don’t agree with us. some offer little to no coverage. others only cover diagnostic testing. some insurance providers may completely cover medication or one full round of ivf. in short, there’s no easy answer except for this: we promise to work with your provider to make sure absolutely everything that should be covered, actually is.
every person’s fertility journey is different, but our philosophy is the same: to always be transparent and fair with our prices. no matter how many rounds of treatment or hurdles along the way, we’ll be clear with you, no matter what. typically our prices are 40% lower than any other clinic in the us because we put patients over profits.
an average ivf cycle takes about 6-8 weeks from consultation to transfer. if you’re using a gestational carrier or surrogate, this time may increase. an average cycle timeline looks something like this:
day 1: ultrasound and bloodwork (ovarian stimulation)

of course! many health care plans provided through the workplace have a health savings account (hsa) or flexible spending account (fsa) attached to them. these accounts allow you to contribute money from your paycheck into accounts that can be used for medical costs not covered by insurance. if you don’t have or don’t know how to set up an hsa follow these steps below to get started.
– research hsa providers online. use hsa comparison websites, like hsa search, to help narrow your search.
– check with your health insurance company to see if they partner with hsa financial institutions.
– ask your bank if they offer an hsa option that meets your needs.
