Kindbody is a one-stop shop for women's health and fertility needs. Its members pay $10 a month for access to all the services they need to conceive and keep their bodies healthy. In addition, they can schedule a virtual appointment with a speciality provider, receive an annual gynaecology checkup, and get same-day urgent care. Kindbody also offers discounted wellness services such as egg freezing.
Kindbody has created a new kind of health clinic for women that combines a modern patient experience with affordable prices. It provides a full range of reproductive health services, from pre-conception coaching to pre-postpartum care, and offers female-led care using state-of-the-art technology.
Kindbody's goal is to be the one-stop shop for all women's health and fertility needs. It aims to provide fertility treatment and education at prices that are 40 to 50 per cent lower than standard. In addition, the company plans to offer egg-freezing treatments and IVF services at discounted rates.
It offers a virtual appointment with speciality providers.
A virtual appointment with a speciality provider is important to maintaining your health. While it is impossible to replace a personal visit, virtual visits are a great way to ensure that your medical information is always up-to-date. Virtual health care sessions often include:
- Discussions about recent tests.
- A review of test results.
- Even reminders of upcoming appointments.
The patient can also message the physician to discuss any questions.
The service works by connecting patients with a speciality provider who can treat their specific needs. The providers range from mental health therapists to nutritionists, physical therapists, and eastern medicine specialists. The providers strive to create individualized family-building journeys for their patients and are committed to providing comprehensive care.
It offers a fertility test at home.
A fertility test at home is a great way to check your fertility levels without visiting a doctor's office. These tests are often performed by measuring hormones like FSH. These levels are released by your ovaries and can tell you how many eggs you may still have. Although at-home tests are not as accurate as professional tests, they are still a good way to start a conversation with your healthcare provider about your reproductive health.
About one in eight couples struggle to conceive, and both men and women can cause infertility. About one-third of cases are due to problems with a woman's reproductive system, while the remainder is due to unknown factors. Thankfully, there are options now that make fertility testing easy and affordable. For example, Kindbody has launched Kind at Home, which allows men and women to test their fertility at home.
It charges less for egg freezing.
While most fertility clinics charge thousands of dollars for egg freezing, Kindbody charges less. In addition to their lower prices, Kindbody offers free blood tests to assess a woman's ovarian egg reserve. The tests, however, are not enough to determine a woman's overall fertility. At their brick-and-mortar Manhattan clinic, a full fertility assessment costs $250. Regardless of how much less Kindbody charges for egg freezing, it's still not cheap.
Egg freezing can be a huge financial investment, not to mention the emotional and physical cost. It's also not a procedure covered by standard health insurance plans. In addition, the cost of shipping eggs back home is risky and expensive.
It offers family-planning coverage.
Princeton Medical plan members can now access Kindbody's family-planning coverage. The company works with a network of fertility clinics to offer members a full range of reproductive health services. All services are coordinated through Kindbody, and participants receive a dedicated Patient Care Navigator who provides clinical guidance and emotional support around the clock. Members can use their coverage for up to four cycles in their lifetime.
Providing such services shows employees that an organization cares about their workers. Until recently, fertility benefits were largely seen as a women's issue, but a recent open enrollment for Kindbody employees revealed that 30% of participants identified as male. In addition, many were interested in fertility education and treatments such as surrogacy, adoption, and in vitro fertilization. Benefits leaders expressed interest in offering fertility programs for male employees.
