In The Face Of Healthcare Reform, New Life Offers Added IVF Resources, Savings

New Life Agency Adds Yet Another Program Provider,
Pharmacy Discounts to Patients with Donors 

New Life Agency is pleased to announce the addition of Island Reproductive Services to their cutting-edge Assisted Reproduction Insurance Program® (ARI). With the addition of Island Reproductive Services, with centers in Staten Island and New Jersey, patients participating in New Life ARI coverage programs can now choose from 12 preferred providers throughout the East Coast and most of Southern California.

New Life Agency continues to build its network of participating ARI centers in their quest to bring assisted reproduction help within the reach of more and more people hoping to build a family. According to Gary Hickox, New Life CEO, the company’s revolutionary IVF insurance coverage is poised to play an even larger role than it has already.

 “With the election behind us and the new Healthcare Reform ahead,” said Hickox, “it seems inevitable that what limited IVF coverage exists in only 15 states today will surely dwindle in 2014. Currently the Affordable Health Care Act does not provide coverage for infertility, and it is not listed as an ‘Essential Health Benefit’.  As a result, many more couples will face the heartbreak of infertility. New Life Agency shines a bright beacon of hope, continuing to offer some of the best financial solutions in the country for the ever-rising costs of IVF treatments, procedures and fertility medications.”


Unprecedented IVF Coverage
New Life Agency is the only company specializing exclusively in Assisted Reproduction Insurance®.  The breakthrough ARI program provides a tremendous cost savings, as well as peace of mind, to patients in need of in vitro fertilization (IVF).  The average cost for IVF is roughly $12,000 and generally only provides for one cycle.  The use of frozen embryos is typically not included in the cost and could result in another $3,000 for a frozen embryo transfer (FET).  

Couples with New Life’s ARI program pay one global fee upfront for their IVF treatments. The ARI program plans include both FET, as well as fresh cycles, and patients pay nothing else out of pocket for the entire 18 month program. Insurance, consults, fertility treatment, testing and services are included within the chosen plan.

“With each new ARI Provider that joins our program, I see this industry partnering in ways I have never seen before,” said Trish Taylor, President and Founder of New Life Agency. “We are continually asking IVF doctors and pharmacies to share the risk with us and negotiate their cash pay prices down to serve more patients who cannot afford the help they need to create their family. We must all come together– centers, pharmacies, and insurers like New Life – to fill the huge, heartbreaking gap of zero infertility coverage being available to patients through major medical.” 


Walgreens Partners with Pharmacy Care Card®
The Fertility Pharmacy Care Card®, servicing patients for over three years, is providing patients with donors the same extreme savings in medications. Patients with donor cycles now save $100 discount for each $1,000 purchase of stimulation medication through Walgreens. It’s easy to sign-up at There is a one-time $25 fee for the card, offset by an added bonus: Once enrolled, patients will receive a $25 Walgreens Gift Card to use toward purchases at any Walgreens location.

Angela was stressed when her first IVF procedure was unsuccessful. “My experience with the Pharmacy Card was wonderful,” she reports. “Everyone was fast and expedited my medications needed for the second try, and the after-hours pharmacist was amazingly helpful.” Patient Angela is now a happy mom with twin girls!

 “In this economy, families already feel financial stress. Now imagine adding the stress of infertility,” said Hickox. “It’s wonderful to be able have our company offer solutions to such huge challenges. New Life is changing the face of the assisted reproduction industry by providing programs the doctors and pharmacies can participate in to demonstrate their commitment to helping patients.”

First-Ever Global Newborn Twins Medical Insurance Announced

“Newborn Twins Insurance is a critical need in the fertility insurance marketplace,” stated Trish Taylor, President and Founder of New Life Insurance Agency. “Parents around the world are suffering financially today, and this insurance provides them protection and peace of mind in the event of premature birth and other medical costs associated with newborn twins.”

New Life Agency’s Newborn Twins Insurance is the only plan of its type in the world, made possible by the company’s longstanding relationship with the world’s specialist insurance market. The plan provides coverage for twins born to parents who do not qualify for U.S. based medical insurance as non-residents. The $50,000 premium buys $1 million worth of coverage, with a $50,000 deductible. The deductible is fully refundable once all deductible claims are paid for the twins medical expenses.

“There has been a definite need for twins coverage in the marketplace as more and more global parents choose twin births as a means to expand their families,” said Gary Hickox, CEO of New Life Agency. “We listened to the marketplace and have developed a specific insurance targeted to meeting the needs of those parents and their babies worldwide.”

Top U.S. and global surrogacy agencies are enthusiastic about the latest New Life fertility insurance breakthrough.

“This twins insurance plan is exactly what we’ve been asking New Life to create. We are thrilled with this new product and are sure that our international clients will be equally pleased with the protection and safety this policy provides.”
           Stuart Bell, CEO
                        Growing Generations

 “Once again New Life has recognized a need and offered the right product.  We are pleased that parents have the option to minimize the potential burdensome costs of twins at an affordable price.  We will recommend this product to our parents.  Thank you, New Life.”
            Karen Synesiou, Co-Owner, Co-Director
                        Center for Surrogate Parenting

 This twins insurance plan adds another layer of protection for individuals embarking on reproductive journeys in the United States.  We are pleased that New Life has expanded their insurance offerings to give our clients a breadth of choices in this ever changing market.”
                        Melissa Brisman, Owner
                        Reproductive Possibilities

In addition, New Life Agency announced today additions to their global single-baby insurance, as well.

  • The International Newborn Care Plan® – Platinum: $500,000 coverage for a premium of $50,000
  • The International Newborn Care Plan® – Gold: $250,000 coverage for a premium of $25,000
  • The International Newborn Care Plan® – Silver:  $100,000 coverage for a premium of $10,000 (New Life’s original coverage plan now christened as the Silver Coverage
All of the International Newborn Care Plan polices for single babies carry a $15,000 deductible. Just as with the twins insurance and the current International Newborn Care policy, the deductible is fully refundable once all deductible claims are paid for the babies medical expenses.

Prospective parents can buy New Life’s singleton or twins coverage, and if there is a change in the status of the pregnancy, can transfer to the appropriate plan.

“New Life is the only insurance agency specializing in Assisted Reproduction Insurance®,” said Hickox. “These plans join our broad array of cutting-edge insurance programs, available today by speaking with New Life policy coordinators. These new products follow our recent industry-shaking price cuts. Though we had not increased premiums and deductible in four years, we announced savings of more than 20% on our most popular plans – while medical costs increased a total of 65%. This strongly demonstrates how committed we are to continue leading the way in providing truly revolutionary solutions to support people in expanding their families.”

 New Life’s newborn twins and singletons medical coverage’s will be unveiled on October 22nd, 2012 at the 68th Annual American Society for Reproduction Medicine (ASRM) Conference in San Diego.  ASRM is a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the advancement of the art, science, and practice of reproductive medicine.

New Life Agency Has Dramatically Reduced Prices on Insurance Programs

New Life Agency, Inc. has made the latest infertility technology even more accessible to couples wanting to build a family. The company has dramatically reduced prices on a number of its revolutionary discount and insurance products, it was announced today by Gary Hickox, CEO of New Life Agency.

New Life Agency provides Assisted Reproduction Insurance® for maternity, in vitro fertilization complications, intended parents, surrogates and egg donors.  New Life offers the most comprehensive fertility and maternity medical insurance programs in the world and services all facets of the insurance process – from the application process and underwriting to approvals and issuance of certificate coverage.  

Since opening its doors in 1998, New Life Agency has helped parents welcome over 1,700 babies into their families, processing over 100,000 claims and paying over $20 million in benefits. Even though the company has always offered unprecedented coverage at a cost designed to bring infertility care within the reach of the hopeful couples everywhere, the decision was made to reduce program prices even further.    

“In the 14 years we’ve been in business, our market place has evolved substantially from surrogacy to serving the broader infertility market,” said Hickox.  “And as the market has evolved, there are people of varying economic means faced with the infertility challenge.  We took this pricing action to make our product more affordable across the board for families challenged either by infertility or those in need of a surrogate.”

Program Price reductions include:

$195 Egg Donor Only Cycle Insurance(SM) (was $245)

$345 Egg Donor Recipient Cycle Insurance(SM) (was $395)

$395 Surrogate Accidental Death Insurance® (was $595)

The premium is 100% refundable, minus a required broker fee, if the Backup Plan is not activated.

BACK UP PLAN Price Reductions:

$5,000 Back Up Plan- If plan is not activated 100% of premium is refunded less the $1,500 Broker Fee (was $6,050)
