RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — The New Life Agency has added a prescription progesterone supplement and RESOLVE: the National Fertility Association to the Fertility Pharmacy Care Card.
The New Life Agency aligned with Watson Pharmaceuticals to include Crinone (progesterone gel 8%) in the program, which will provide patients with the FPCC with $30 in savings on every Crinone prescription. Patients who purchase the card — which provides infertile patients, egg donors and surrogates a cash-only program with significant discounts on fertility medications — also will get a $100 discount for each $1,000 purchase of stimulation medication through Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy.
Once enrolled, patients will receive a $25 Walgreens gift card usable at any store.
“Our goal is to offer personalized fertility pharmacy services, along with the best possible support, for these very specialized pharmacy needs,” Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy VP product development Enyde Polesuk said. “We’re pleased to be part of this first-of-its-kind cost solution, and look forward to making our services more accessible than ever for hopeful parents-to-be.”
The New Life Agency also is recognizing National Infertility Awareness Week together with RESOLVE.
“[RESOLVE] is delighted that New Life Agency is recognizing National Infertility Awareness Week and applauds their efforts to help educate the American public about resources available to the women and men fighting the disease of infertility,” RESOLVE executive director Barb Collura said.
