How Fertility Benefits Can Save Your Company Money (Thought Leadership Spotlight)

Fertility treatments and other family-forming journeys like adoption are notoriously expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars on average. It may seem counterintuitive, then, that providing employees with fertility benefits can actually help reduce healthcare and other costs. But in fact, fertility benefits are an essential tool for lowering costs, retaining valuable employees, and meeting DEI goals — even during uncertain economic times. In this webinar, we’ll explore how clinically managed fertility benefits can help your company reduce high-cost claims, guide employees toward less invasive care, and retain some of your most valuable employees.

Key takeaways:

Learn why fertility benefits are still valuable during uncertain economic times

Understand why costs for fertility care are sometimes higher than they need to be — and how fertility benefits can reduce those costs

Hear how improved prenatal care and access to pregnancy professionals can reduce costly procedures like C-sections

Learn how menopause symptoms can impact work and productivity and how providing better support reduces costs
