at mate, we’re different on paper. and in practice.

better results start with a better approach.

a one stop fertility shop.

we’re your partner from the very beginning of your fertility journey. whether it’s advice, answers, or medications, we’re here for everything you need, from start to delivery. and because our rates will always be lower and our service will always be better, you won’t have to worry about shopping around for doctors or jumping through hoops.

affordable pricing.

for years, limited supply and high demand has given legacy fertility clinics the green light to raise prices. by increasing the supply of fertility clinics and challenging traditional pricing strategies, mate treatments are 40% lower than traditional clinics.

mission, not profit driven.

our mission is straightforward: to create a simpler way to go from “i want a baby” to “i’m a parent.” and everything we do reflects. transparent information, an easy process, and honest services and experts. from lowering the cost of ivf to opening clinics just around the block, we’re lowering all the obstacles to starting a family.

a team of providers vs. one provider.

we take second opinions seriously. that’s why we apply an entire team of experts to your treatment. whether it’s additional advice or an extra set of eyes or scientific validations, you’ll have a network of local providers and nurses, a national team of award-winning doctors and experts checking –– and double checking –– your care during the entire journey.

decades of proprietary techniques.

we bring decades of experience to the fertility field. In fact dr. steinberg and dr. schmidt were some of the first doctors to bring ivf to the united states over 30 years ago. today, they’re applying proprietary techniques in the doctor’s office and the lab to make sure embryos have the highest likelihood of survival. it’s years of applied experience that’s leading to increased success rates.

technology-powered care.

you won’t find fax machines, paper, and legacy lab equipment here. something many legacy fertility doctors can’t claim. we’re putting the latest technology and patient experience at the heart of everything we do. this means shorter wait times, centralized data, and industry-leading patient care along the way.

an e-pharmacy with 24/7 support and easy medication delivery.

our pharmacy partners deliver all your medication to your door. but that’s just the start. they’re always on call along with our fertility advisors to discuss any medications, injections, or directions.

world class labs.

fertility science has changed a lot over the years. so has lab equipment and machinery. while most legacy clinics haven’t kept up with the times, every one of our labs is custom built from the ground up with the most advanced and modern technology the world offers.

convenient access.

20% of the population experiences some form of infertility. and there are only 480 fertility clinics in the US. talk about inconvenience. you can find mate fertility clinics right in cities and towns across the country. so instead of driving (or even flying) for hours for treatment, you can always find easy access right down the road.

care at mate
isn’t stressful.
it’s simple.

fertility comes with lots of questions. good thing we’ve got lots of answers.

bring on the questions.

  • is mate covered by insurance?

    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.

  • how much does mate really cost?

    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. 

  • how long until i get pregnant?

    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) 

    day 2: (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 3: (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 4: ultrasound and bloodwork (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 5: (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 6: ultrasound and bloodwork (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 7: (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 8: ultrasound and bloodwork (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 9: (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 10: ultrasound and bloodwork (ovarian stimulation) 

    day 11: trigger shot

    day 12:

    day 13: fertilization & egg retrieval 

    day 14: embryos culture in the lab for 5-6 days

    day 15: embryos culture in the lab for 5-6 days

    day 16: embryos culture in the lab for 5-6 days

    day 17: embryos culture in the lab for 5-6 days

    day 18: transfer or pgt on frozen embryo 

    day 19-33: two week wait

    day 33: pregnancy test

  • which fertility treatment is right for me?

    determining the right treatment for you can seem daunting. we get it. that’s why we create a personalized plan after your first assessment and consultation. you can also take our basic online assessment for free to get an insight into what path might be right for you. 

  • does mate accept hsa or fsa?

    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.

  • how does mate work?

    mate takes a personal, customized approach to fertility. after your free consultation, we’ll pair you with a fertility advisor who will ask you a few questions and answer some of yours. if mate fertility is right for you, we’ll connect you with a fertility advisor who will perform an assessment and create a personal path moving forward.
