Helpful Tax Tips to Make Fertility Treatments More Affordable

At PREG, we are always looking for ways to make fertility treatments more affordable for our patients.We have our financial counselors available to you on a daily basis to help you maximize your insurance benefits.PREG also has several financial programs that offer assistance and we strive to find the most cost effective treatments based on your insurance coverage. We are contracted with most insurance carriers. Just recently, we partnered with Pay It Forward Fertility to offer grants to our patients who don’t have any fertility coverage from their insurance company.

Keep a log of your expenses: All patients will have labs that cannot be processed in our laboratory. Those tests will be sent to a reference lab such as Quest Diagnostics or LabCorp. Some patients may have surgery at a hospital facility and there will be medications needed for fertility treatment. We recommend keeping a log of the dates that you receive treatment/medical services. This will help you decipher which labs/treatments occurred outside of PREG (i.e.: lab tests not processed at PREG, pathology reports, outpatient testing/surgery).

Keep up with your receipts: Our financial counselors are happy to provide a copy of payments made to PREG at the end of the year. If you have any questions or would like to get a printout, please contact Sabrina Harris at 864-404-3500. Make sure you keep receipts for services provided to you by pharmacies, reference labs, etc. Those receipts will also be beneficial to you when filing taxes.

Maximize your Flexible Spending account or Health Savings Plan to pay for treatment pre-taxed. Depending on your tax bracket, this could provide significant savings.

(Additional savings may also be available for patients that itemize their taxes.You may find the most up-to-date information on medical deductions at www.irs.gov.)

Please feel free to contact one of our financial counselors to discuss how you can ease the cost of fertility treatments. By using these tips and all of the other programs available at PREG, we can help make your treatments more affordable. We look forward to helping you achieve your dreams of becoming a parent.
