Employer Sponsered Plans
Carrot Fertility Benefits
Good news! Turek Clinic patients receive a discount on testing and treatment when they use their Carrot fertility benefit dollars.
How does Carrot work? Carrot is NOT an insurance company. Carrot is an employer-sponsored reimbursement financial benefit. Members are considered self-pay patients and get reimbursed dollar for dollar until their company’s fertility benefit maximum is reached. Similar to an HSA or flexible spending account, Carrot members may receive a Carrot Card with the set dollar amount available towards fertility treatment. Members may use their personal or Carrot card to pay for treatment at discounted self-pay rates.
Interested in bringing Carrot fertility benefits to your workplace? Tell them about your company, and they will reach out to let them know their employees are interested in fertility and family-forming benefits.

How to Bill Your Insurance
Another place to investigate is often with your own insurance carrier. Although Dr. Turek and The Turek Clinic are not contracted with any insurance carriers, depending on the provider and plan type you have, several of the procedures we perform may be covered by your insurance carrier via reimbursement to you after you have undergone and paid for the procedure. To find out, call the phone number on the back of your insurance card and ask to speak with a representative about reimbursement of medical expenses related to the procedure you are interested in. For tips on how to communicate with your insurance provider, or to get personal help seeking reimbursement, past patients have had success working with the national nonprofit Fertility Within Reach.
To ensure that we deliver the utmost quality of medical care to our patients, we are unable to participate in-network with the majority of insurance providers. This decision is driven by the reimbursement rates established by many insurance companies, which are often set at levels that do not support sustainable financial viability for us. We will however provide you a super bill to submit to your insurance company.
We hold a steadfast belief that it is not in the best interest of our patients to compromise on the quality of our equipment or to rush through visits and procedures solely to conform to insurance reimbursement requirements. The standard of care we uphold goes beyond the limitations of these insurance policies, and we remain dedicated to providing the highest quality treatment and attention to our patients’ needs, delivering the best possible outcomes for patients around the globe.
Health Savings Accounts
Another payment option is to set up a health savings account or HSA.
HSAs are typically available to people who have high deductible health plans. In the case of vasectomy reversal or vasectomy, the IRS has carved out a special designation for those undergoing restorative fertility treatments or vasectomies, which are medical expenses that can be covered by the money in a Health Savings Account.
In the case of vasectomy reversal or vasectomy, the IRS has carved out a special designation for those undergoing restorative fertility treatments or vasectomies.
In IRS publication 502, these are under the category Fertility Enhancement and another called Vasectomy and they specifically state, “You can include in medical expenses the cost of the following procedures to overcome an inability to have children. Procedures such as in vitro fertilization (including temporary storage of eggs or sperm). Surgery, including an operation to reverse prior surgery that prevented the person operated on from having children,” or “You can include in medical expenses the amount you pay for a vasectomy.”
In this case, you would either use funds available to you in your Health Savings Account for payment of your procedure, or you can reimburse yourself in the future after you have paid for them. Detailed information is available on the IRS website.
