Donor Egg Bank USA Surpasses Industry Standards

ROCKVILLE, Md., June 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Donor Egg Bank USA, the largest frozen donor egg bank in the USA, is proud to announce that they continue to exceed the standards for frozen egg donation as outlined by the independent non-profit organization Parents Via Egg Donation.

As cited by PVED, two of the most critical factors in achieving successful pregnancy via donor egg are thawing and fertilization. This year, DEB USA adds to its esteemed team of embryologist, which includes world renowned scientist, Michael Tucker PhD, known for having performed the first intracytoplasmic sperm injection in the United States that resulted in a birth. Wayne Caswell, will become the Executive Director of Technology and Quality. Caswell has been an embryologist in the fertility industry since 1994.

By training and monitoring a network of highly respected fertility clinics, Caswell will continue to help DEB USA achieve some of the best success rates in the industry. "Egg freezing can be fickle and not all embryologists have mastered the skillset. Quality management is important in Donor Egg Bank USA remaining the leader in egg banking. It's a pleasure to be joining a company passionate about ensuring high standards," says Caswell.

Additionally, DEB USA has added six new network partners: RMA of Connecticut, Boston IVF in Indiana, Buffalo Infertility & IVF Associates, Georgia Reproductive Specialist, Missouri Center for Reproductive Medicine and San Diego Fertility Center.

The PVED site notes that working with carefully selected fertility practitioners can increase quality assurance. Believing that practitioner skill plays a key role in ultimate pregnancy success, DEB USA hand selects their fertility practice partners from around the country. With the addition of the six new partners, DEB USA now has over 100 locations in North America from which recipients may choose.

Lastly, DEB USA will continue to provide a transparent funding model for its clients. With the Assured Refund Plan™, recipients who don't deliver a baby within six cycles are given a 100% refund; furthermore, recipients may opt out of the program at any time and receive an 80% refund. This vanguard model is the only of its kind among donor egg banks. Clients may also choose a single cycle plan or acquire just the eggs if they have insurance.

"Time after time, families who have delivered a baby come back to me with their gratitude for the Assured Refund Plan™," says Heidi Hayes, CEO of Donor Egg Bank USA. "The Assured Refund Plan™ takes the financial pressure off, because its all-inclusive of the medical cost associated with donor egg treatment– you either have a baby or you get your money back. For people who have often already spent tens of thousands of dollars, year over year, this kind of relief is critical to their success. "

Donor Egg Bank USA is a frozen donor egg program developed through the collaboration of more than 200 of the country's top reproductive specialists and available at more than 100 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Donor Egg Bank USA offers immediate access to a broad donor egg pool and uses advanced freezing technology to produce success rates similar to traditional (fresh) donor egg programs. Using frozen eggs from Donor Egg Bank USA requires less time than a fresh donor egg cycle (1-3 months versus 4-6 months in a traditional cycle), and is more affordable. Donor Egg Bank USA offers the financial security of a 100% Assured Refund Plan™ if a couple does not deliver a baby. Donor Egg Bank USA offers frozen egg fertility options to couples nationally and across the globe. For more information: www.donoreggbankusa.com, 855-344-2265.
