What is a SMART Cycle™?

  • Progyny’s fertility benefits provide treatment based on value versus cost. This means a member will have access to the best treatment and technology for them. The SMART Cycle features services preimplantation genetic screening (PGS), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), vitrification, single embryo transfer (SET), IVF and IUI.

How does a SMART Cycle™ work?

  • A SMART Cycle functions as a type of currency that patients can use when shopping for treatment options. Patients simply chose the procedure that will be the most effective, but instead of paying cash, Progyny members use a SMART cycle (or a portion of a SMART cycle) to cover the process from beginning to end. This includes the initial consult, diagnostic testing, and all infertility treatment options, including the latest embryo screening technologies. By offering bundled coverage we are increasing success rates, and decreasing time to pregnancy. 

Is there a breakdown on the coverage and the amount?

  • Employers choose the number of all-inclusive SMART Cycles they’d like to fund. Coverage amounts typically range from 1 to 5 SMART cycles per employee. The number of SMART cycles included in an employee's benefit package indicate the amount of coverage that employee is entitled to. This enables employees to have full coverage for the treatment that’s right for them. 
  • Check with HR or your Patient Care Advocate for a breakdown of your benefits.
