Tennessee Reproductive Medicine will donate fertility treatment services to a couple or individual facing infertility.
The treatment, an in vitro fertilization cycle, will include scans, laboratory testing, egg and sperm retrieval, fertilization, and embryo transfer at no cost to the recipient.
Tennessee Reproductive Medicine is offering the free treatment to support those struggling with the high costs associated with fertility treatments.
A standard IVF cycle averages $15,000 when factoring in the cost of medication, and most United States insurance providers do not cover any aspect of the procedure.
“As doctors, we realize there is such a great need in the community for fertility treatment, yet it really is out of reach for so many people,” Tennessee Reproductive Medicine physician Dr. Rink Murray said in a prepared statement. “And even if it’s not, infertility is still a tremendous strain on a family.”
Those interested in the procedure should fill out an application by Nov. 30.
The winner will be selected from qualified applicants in mid-December.
