well yeah certainly like for cancer patients or people that our insurance doesn’t cover preserving their fertility for all these years we’ve done that for free because we don’t want money to get in the way of decisions they have to make right away.

Now if you need financial assistance for it, there are methods that we’ll use but also there are… We’re not in the insurance business, but we can refer you to… there are plenty of companies that will do insurance programs and do loans for IVF and you can do that but we’re not in the financing business.
