Law firm employees provided with lifetime allowance for fertility treatment
Foot Anstey LLP has partnered with Europe’s most comprehensive reproductive health benefits provider, Fertifa, to introduce an enhanced fertility and family-forming and gender-based health benefit.
Starting in October 2023, all employees at the law firm will have access to unlimited 1-2-1 wellbeing support and navigational advice for their fertility challenges and fertility journeys. As part of the partnership the firm will offer employees' financial reimbursement for clinical treatment up to £15,000.
With Fertifa as its partner, the firm will have expert resources available for all reproductive health journeys beyond fertility and family-forming. This includes women’s reproductive health and menopause plus men’s reproductive, sexual and hormonal health.
Speaking about the importance of supporting its colleagues, Felix Hebblethwaite, Group HR Director at Foot Anstey said: “We have always been proud to prioritise and advocate for colleague wellbeing. Our partnership with Fertifa is the next step for us in supporting individuals across the firm with their fertility challenges, family forming or other reproductive health journeys”.
All Foot Anstey employees will have access to a monthly webinar series including Q&A with Fertifa’s medical team, educational content, awareness and HR/line manager training materials all available in the Fertifa app. In addition, they will have access to free video discovery calls with Fertifa nurse practitioners and unlimited 1-2-1 support and advice via in-app chat and email.
For colleagues who undertake clinical treatment such as, IVF, IUI or ICSI, require consultant advice or tests and investigations, Foot Anstey is reimbursing the costs in line with a lifetime allowance. The process and compliance is administered by Fertifa in order to protect employee privacy and ensure policy compliance and eligibility.
