San Francisco, CA – October 16, 2014 – Childbearing and career may be mutually exclusive for some women. But two tech giants are now addressing that conundrum by offering unprecedented egg-freezing fertility benefits. Covering this news, local and national media sought the expertise of Pacific Fertility Center (PFC) physicians on the technical aspects of this development.
Facebook began offering egg freezing and storage as part of its benefits package earlier this year; Apple will begin in January of 2015. Each egg-freezing procedure usually costs about $10,000, and annual storage costs are around $500. Although each company offers slightly different policies, both cover up to $20,000 for egg freezing, a procedure not typically covered by insurance for non-medical reasons.
