RMA of New York: A leader in reproductive treatments


While frontline workers have always performed critical work functions in their communities, their selfless service has particularly resonated over the past three years. RMA of New York recognizes the commitment of healthcare workers, first responders, teachers, federal employees, and other civil servants in the face of challenges and obstacles posed by the pandemic. Their dedication to the community is monumental, and RMA of New York thanks these heroes for their sacrifices.

RMA of New York’s leading reproductive treatments and success rates are within reach to those frontline workers with fertility benefits. This includes low-tech treatments, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI), and more advanced assisted reproductive techniques, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and preimplantation genetic testing (PGT), as well as fertility preservation, such as egg freezing, and reproductive surgeries. Additionally, for our city’s frontline workers who have not achieved pregnancy or been able to find success, the individualized care and high success rates found at RMA of New York, often  results in pregnancies and successful family  building.

”I am so proud of the inclusive environment we have created,” stated Dr. Alan Copperman, managing partner of RMA and Mount Sinai Professor.  “We are committed to providing personalized and exceptional care, and using the most up to date science and technology to help make our patient’s dreams of a family become reality”

RMA of New York understands the demands of a career in civil service. Members from the clinical, administrative, and financial teams at RMA of New York prioritize providing convenient and accessible care so that family-building can be achieved while meeting occupational expectations. RMA of New York offers care at 15 locations throughout New York City and Westchester County. Additionally, early morning monitoring appointments and late afternoon consultations are available to patients to offer flexibility.

Moreover, RMA of New York acts as an advocate for patients to optimize coverage and minimize out-of-pocket expenses. The cost of fertility treatment can present an economic barrier for individuals and couples struggling to conceive. Fortunately, health insurance coverage in the form of fertility benefits can provide significant financial relief by covering fully or in part the costs of office visits, bloodwork, fertility medications, reproductive diagnostics and surgery, and other treatments. Because coverage will vary policy to policy, individuals will work one-on-one with an RMA of New York financial coordinator to find a financing option that works best to accomplish their family-building goals.

Frontline workers have served as a critical foundation to keeping New York running during the pandemic. Now, RMA of New York wants to serve as your foundation for family-building. Our physicians and team members look forward to providing you essential care and helping you achieve your family-building goals.
