You are required to complete your New Hire benefit enrollment for the remainder of the 2021 plan year, as well as your 2022 annual enrollment for benefits effective Jan. 1, 2022.

Fertility Benefits With Progyny

New in 2022, Drexel University is excited to offer fertility benefits through Progyny, the country's leading fertility benefits solution. The Progyny benefit includes comprehensive treatment coverage leveraging the latest technologies and treatments, access to high-quality care through a premiere network of fertility specialists, and personalized emotional support and guidance for every path to parenthood from dedicated Patient Care Advocates (PCAs).

Progyny Fertility Benefits is an enhancement to all of Drexel's medical plans, so you and your spouse/domestic partner must be enrolled in a Drexel's medical plan in order to participate in these benefits. Progyny is your fertility benefits administrator; therefore, participants utilizing this benefit will be billed at the tier-two, in-network level, and payments will be made to Progyny and not directly to your medical provider.
