With the high rate of infertility seen in Nigeria, Nordica, a fertility specialist center, has developed two products that would help in solving the infertility challenges suffered by millions of families.
The new products know as Nordica Flex Plan and Nordica Xclusive, are innovations developed by the firm amidst the coronavirus pandemic, which the lockdowns have affected local and international travel, hospitality industry, entertainment industry, but most importantly, it has put a huge strain on the healthcare sector.
Around the world, treatment of fertility is a high cost ticket item. In the USA, the average cost of an IVF cycle has been put between $10,000 to $15,000, for the basic treatment without any add-on treatments and drugs. In the UK, the average cost for basic IVF with own eggs can cost as much as £9000. While when using donor eggs it can range between £9000 – £12000.
“To change this narrative and help many more people access fertility treatment in the country, we have developed the flex pay plan, an installment payment plan that allows couples to save towards having babies of their own,” said Abayomi Ajayi, the managing director, Nordica Fertility Centre.
According to him, while the world is focused on COVID-19, we need to keep our eyes on couples who are fertility challenged. With the easy payment options, couples who qualify for the plan and stay focused on achieving their goal of childbirth.
“The Flex Pay Plan will allow couples to set a target for themselves. While they are on the plan, they will have access to some of our premium services leading up to the final treatment required. We implore couples to take advantage of the plan to complete their families,” he said.
While the Flex play plan was built to provide families who might not have the financial power to foot the bill of fertility treatment at once, the Nordica Xclusive was developed by the firm to cater for its extremely confidentiality focused clients who may have opted for their treatment abroad.
Abayomi also noted that in the face of travel restrictions and the hazards of COVID-19, seeing a premium local alternative that offers flexible appointment-only services with the aim of giving them extremely personalized service was only but necessary. “Couples who desire this level of world-class service can latch onto Nordica Xclusive.”
“We want to assure Nigerians that we will constantly resolve to innovate and bring world class fertility management services to Nigerians,” he added.
