VMware understands the importance of starting a family. If you are enrolled in the UnitedHealthcare HSA PPO or UnitedHealthcare Traditional PPO plans, you are eligible to use the fertility/infertility and family planning benefits offered by Progyny.
Progyny is the premiere fertility benefit designed to provide all-inclusive comprehensive coverage for cutting-edge fertility treatments to assist UHC members wishing to have a child. Progyny’s program includes a credentialed provider network, and a personalized concierge-style member support team, Patient Care Advocate (PCA), who offer education, support, and coordinated care. Progyny’s program does not require a medical diagnosis of infertility in order to access fertility treatment services, which ensures that members of the LGBTQIA community and single parents by choice receive equitable access to coverage.
Through Progyny’s benefit, members have access to a full suite of fertility treatment options, which may include (but may not be limited to):
- Artificial Insemination (IUI)
