Future Family Announces 0% Interest Rate Financing For Fertility Treatments

Future Family, CCRM Fertility | July 06, 2022

Today, Future Family, the only fertility finance platform to pair a modern fintech experience with client care and wellness support, announced that it will add a 0% interest rate fertility financing program to its offerings. This first-of-its-kind plan enables prospective parents to pay for high-cost fertility treatments with no additional interest for up to 12 months. This is a game-changing alternative to large upfront payments or high-interest rate credit cards. Future Family is kicking off the program in partnership with CCRM Fertility, the global pioneer in fertility science, research, and treatment. Financing is the smartest way to pay for fertility treatment and Future Family’s 0% interest plan allows eligible patients to pay the same amount as a cash purchase, but with the flexibility of spreading payments out over time. Future Family is the best fertility partner for prospective parents, especially when compared to credit cards, which are used by just over 85% of patients, have average interest rates over 15%, and credit limits that are frequently lower than the cost of treatment. Future Family’s plans offer an alternative to carrying a credit card balance, which can negatively impact credit scores and become burdensome in the future. “Before this program, no fertility financing company offered a 0% interest financing plan without huge application fees costing thousands of dollars, so this truly is a breakthrough that will give even more prospective parents the opportunity to grow their families,” said Claire Tomkins, CEO and Founder of Future Family. “Before this program, no fertility financing company offered a 0% interest financing plan without huge application fees costing thousands of dollars, so this truly is a breakthrough that will give even more prospective parents the opportunity to grow their families,” said Claire Tomkins, CEO and Founder of Future Family. “We’re very proud to announce this partnership with CCRM Fertility and to launch a unique financing option that will meet the needs of even more patients. Future Family believes that building a family is one of the most significant milestones in life, and financing coupled with care and wellness is the safest and smartest solution for prospective parents.” Today, nearly 50% of people who visit a fertility clinic in pursuit of care and support do not move forward with treatment due to the high cost and complexity. Future Family is transforming the typically difficult and confusing experience with its platform, which combines payments to multiple providers into a streamlined and predictable experience bolstered by autopay and support from personal fertility coaches. “Future Family opens the door for even more people interested in growing their families with fertility treatments by changing how to approach paying for treatment and expanding access to care,” said Jon Pardew, President and CEO of CCRM Fertility. “Both Future Family and CCRM Fertility offer best-in-class patient care and support with a focus on innovative solutions. We are thrilled to offer this much-needed financing option to our patients at most U.S. CCRM Fertility locations.” To learn more about Future Family, please visit www.futurefamily.com.
