According to the American Cancer Society, 140,000 men and women of childbearing age are newly diagnosed with cancer each year. There often is a small window of time for them to preserve their fertility; therefore, access to cryopreservation services is extremely important. ReproTech’s ongoing campaign to promote Fertility Preservation awareness and education stresses the significance of healthcare providers discussing options for Fertility Preservation with patients at diagnosis. The American Medical Association’s (AMA) policy supports coverage by all insurance providers of fertility preservation therapies for patients requiring cancer treatments that may result in infertility. Additionally, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommend the education of oncology patients about the options available to preserve their fertility.
