Center of Excellence

Here at The Center, we are proud of our many accomplishments – not only those resulting in building families, but we are also proud of our clinical distinctions and awards. One of those designations here in Connecticut is our designation as a Center of Excellence from both Aetna and OptumHealth – part of United Healthcare Group, for continuing to provide excellence in infertility care.

Aetna, Inc.

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of health care services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their health care needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Our facility has been selected for our unique expertise in consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.  The Center is proud to be part of Aetna’s Center of Excellence network.

Optum Health

OptumHealth, manager of the fertility benefits for Oxford/UnitedHealth Care patients, evaluates clinical qualifications for infertility centers nationwide and provides members with education, support and access to select infertility Centers of Excellence.  The Center is proud to be part of Optum’s Center of Excellence network.

In Vitro Sciences

We are one of just eleven leading IVF centers nationwide chosen by In Vitro Sciences, Inc. to participate in its Centers of Excellence Program, an exclusive distinction based on key measures of success. This program evaluates things like a center’s experience level, volume, live birth rate, triplet and more rates and other key measures that reflect scientific and clinical superiority. Our selection as a Center of Excellence affirms that we meet the highest possible national standards for clinical and laboratory services.

Because we have been recognized as among the top IVF Centers nationwide, our patients can be confident that we are providing them with the best care. As a chosen partner in this program, we are also able to offer patients who lack adequate insurance coverage access to special financing for advanced treatments such as IUI, IVF, and Frozen Embryo Transfer (using donor eggs or sperm). Qualified patients can choose from financing one cycle at a time or, for IVF, patients can choose a multiple cycle refund program called the IVF Financial Share Program.
