Increased benefits and cost savings for TRM patients with Cigna infertility coverage
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Tennessee Reproductive Medicine has been awarded the Cigna Infertility Center of Excellence meeting standards of quality and cost-efficiency, an accolade given to the top performing infertility centers in the nation.
The distinction is based on multiple criteria certifying that facilities are providing patients the best possible clinical conditions for starting a family.
These criteria include:
- Success rates placing it in the top third of infertility treatment centers in Tennessee and success rates above the national average
- Average cost is better than or equal to expected fertility costs
- Lab that is accredited by the American College of Pathologists
- Board certified endocrinologist on staff
- Minimum cycle volume
The award reflects years of hard work by TRM founding partners Dr. Rink Murray and Dr. Jessica Scotchie who are committed to “do everything possible to minimize the financial and emotional stress of infertility.”
“We understand that infertility pushes individuals and couples, who simply want to start a family, to undertake measures they never imagined,” said Dr. Murray. “Cigna’s recognition is an affirmation of TRM’s continued responsibility to our patients and to make the road to fertility as comfortable as possible.”
For patients who have Cigna coverage and use a Cigna Infertility Center of Excellence like TRM, the increased level of benefits could mean a cost savings of thousands of dollars.
