In November we honor our troops who have served our country with Veterans Day, celebrated earlier this month, and continue to give thanks for their service this Thanksgiving. Not only must we recognize the sacrifice that our veterans gave and continue to give by protecting our freedom but we must also honor those who may have had their own quality of life forever impacted related to injuries sustained during service. One program that is currently available and designed specifically for our veterans’ is EMD Serono’s Compassionate Corps program.
The Compassionate Corps program is designed to help veterans whose service related injuries have contributed to infertility, gain access to treatments and services. Currently the Department of Veterans Affairs does not cover fertility medications for in vitro fertilization (IVF), and if the veteran does not have commercial insurance to cover fertility medications they can face a high out-of-pocket expense. The program aims to provide qualifying patients free medication to allow them to complete up to 2 cycles per year.
In an effort to meet the needs all service members, EMD Serono added to the Compassionate Care Program. Eligible active duty or veteran service members who apply for the Compassionate Care Program will receive a discount of at least 25% on select EMD Serono medications.
