What is a Smart Cycle?

A Smart Cycle is a complete set of fertility treatments for in vitro fertilization (IVF), fertility preservation (egg/sperm freezing), or intrauterine insemination/artificial insemination (IUI). Coverage for each Smart Cycle includes the consultation, diagnostic testing, monitoring and management of the fertility care, preimplantation genetic screening, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), embryo cryopreservation, one year of embryo or semen storage, anesthesiology, personalized member education, and concierge service from a Progyny Patient Care Advocate (PCA).

There is a lifetime maximum of two Smart Cycles, but there is no benefit dollar limit. Each Smart Cycle covers diagnostic tests and technologies that are normally paid out of pocket by you.
