Simple Surrogacy is proud to announce that we are adding several new staff members to our staff to better service our clients. First among our new hires is new Clinical Liaison Lesa Hanson. Lesa will assist in the daily coordination between our staff and clinics we refer to. She will communicate directly to clinic staff, and between Surrogates and Egg Donors undergoing screening and cycles. Lesa has extensive experience in the medical field and is currently a Registered Nurse. We are proud to welcome her to the staff.
We are also adding additional coordinators very soon to our staff. Heading up Intended Parent Coordination as Senior Coordinator will be Jennifer Scott. Jennifer Scott has been a surrogate twice over for us and is very experienced in all aspects of the surrogacy process. She will guide our matched Intended Parents through the cycling process and remain their contact through their pregnancy journey. Also joining us as an Intended Parent coordinator is Jill Errera. Also a two time surrogate through our program, Jill’s experience carrying twin pregnancies will be put to good use as she also guides our Intended Parents through their cycle and pregnancy.
We are also adding additional staff to our Surrogate coordinators. Joining us will be Kristina Gray, a former surrogate. She experienced a smooth and uncomplicated pregnancy as a surrogate and we’re happy she is joining us to guide other surrogates through our program.
We are also pleased to offer a valuable additional service to our Intended Parents. As we all know, Insurance policies for Surrogates are confusing and complicated. Previously, we had reviewed those policies in house, and recommended that Intended Parents themselves be responsible for vetting those policies for surrogacy exclusions. Now, we are outsourcing the review of all Surrogate policies to a partner company who will provide an analysis of the policy and issue a report on coverage and exclusions to all Intended Parents. So, now when you match through our program, you will have the peace of mind in knowing the insurance policy has been thoroughly vetted.
We are pleased to continue to offer such excellent service and staff to our clients. As such, we have found it necessary to increase our rates for the first time in 2 years. Effective June 1st, the new fee for Gestational Surrogacy will be $14,500. The legal Included program will increase to $18,000, and will now include the legal documents for Declaration of Guardianship at no additional fee. Though we find it necessary to slightly increase our fees, we have done a through analysis of comparable programs and have found that even with the small increase, our program remains one of the lowest fee programs, especially at the level of service we provide to our clients.
We hope you will join us in welcoming our new staff and services, and we look forward to helping many more families become complete!
