Fertility & The New Year: 4 Ways To Prepare in 2024

The new year is often a time where people make plans and evaluate their goals. If starting or growing your family in 2024 is one of your goals, being prepared is important! Explore some of our expert-approved tips below!

  1. Evaluate your plan. Are you and your partner on the same page? Have you tried options in the past that have not been successful? Do you need a consultation with your provider to determine your next steps? The new year is the perfect time to look at your fertility journey with a fresh perspective!
  1. Verify your fertility benefits. If you have insurance with fertility coverage, the new year is the best time to review what is covered, what your out-of-pocket maximum is, if you have a deductible, and if there have been any other major changes. No matter if your insurance offers you more, less, or the same as last year, our team is here to help guide you through your costs and coverage.
  1. Understand your options. Whether you are just starting treatment or have past experience, meeting with your provider to discuss what options are available to you can be helpful. Sometimes that one simple consultation can change your perspective on what is available to you, or you may learn about something new that could be beneficial. When it comes to building your family, having control over your own journey is empowering.
  1. Build up your support system. It’s no secret – infertility and treatments can be stressful. Having the necessary support is crucial to navigating all aspects of your path to parenthood. Whether this means leaning on your current loved ones or branching out to make new friends, having people around you who understand your situation is important. There are various support groups available, or individual therapy options. We provide virtual behavioral health sources through our partnership with Linqcare. Learn more about how to schedule your first visit.
