Ash Carroll-Miller, CEO of Access Fertility, made the announcement to increase the upper age of the scheme and to increase the refund to 100 per cent to coincide with the company’s second birthday. He says:
“When I founded Access Fertility I wanted to help as many patients as possible access the treatment they need. Over the last two years we have helped thousands of patients save on the cost of IVF and reduce their financial risk via our discounted prices and refund programme.
“During that time, we’ve also listened to our patients and tried to understand how we can make our programmes even better.
“I’m pleased to say that we now have an exciting development to our refund programme that incorporates many of the requests that have been made by our patients: higher refund, fewer cycles and overall lower costs.”
Bourn Hall has found that the approach to finance offered by Access Fertility is popular with patients. The funding options are easy to understand and offer a more cost-effective option than the alternative ‘pay as you go’ option.
80 per cent of Bourn Hall’s patients have a baby within three cycles of treatment; now with the prepayment scheme those that aren’t successful will be refunded for their treatment costs.
Ash continues: “Our original refund programme was for patients under the age of 38 and came with a 70% refund. So far we have returned well over £500,000 to patients who have not had success in their treatment, money they would otherwise have lost.
“It’s always been our ambition to increase the refund percentage and now we are able to offer the programme to patients of up to 40 years of age.”
