About:Thank you for joining Everlasting Hopes efforts to provide access to care for North Dakota women and men who are struggling to build their families by providing them with support and insurance coverage.
What is the 1:8 Pledge?: The 1:8 pledge program was developed by Everlasting Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting North Dakota families diagnosed with infertility by providing funds, resources, education, events, and support.
Since its inception in July 2019, Everlasting Hope has opened its first grant cycle which raised over $5000 to give back to families in North Dakota. Events have been held across the state, patient stories shared, support groups formed, and awareness raised that infertility is a disease that affects 1 in 8 right here in North Dakota.
Why: Cost is the number one barrier to infertility medical treatment as North Dakota’s insurance law does not cover infertility treatment. The average cost of treatments is more than $15,000. .Additionally, infertility patients will encounter highly inflated managed care pharmacy prices for medications, where patients with coverage can pay as much as 100% more for medications compared to prices charged to self-pay patients.
Everlasting Hope’s Mission: Everlasting Hope mission is to provide assistance for qualifying infertility patients, while creating public awareness that Infertility is a treatable medical condition and provide resources, education, events, and support to North Dakota families diagnosed with infertility.
