We know our referring provider partners may have some questions about this news, so we have put together answers to some frequently asked questions below:
- How will this integration impact how Vios cares for current patients?
Patients will not experience any disruptions in their individual care; their physician, care team, and treatment plans will not change.
Over time, we hope you and your patients will see exciting developments as we thoughtfully integrate and evolve, taking advantage of the best each of our companies has to offer.
- How will this integration impact me and my patients?
Your patient’s care, experience, and expected outcomes will not change.
The integration allows for more individuals to access fertility and family-building care through expanded locations, employer benefits, and technology.
- What do we stand to gain from the partnership? What are the benefits to us?
Kindbody and Vios seek to revolutionize the fertility industry through superior healthcare, innovative technology, expanded accessibility, and an unparalleled patient experience. We hope this means that with your help, we can even better serve patients across the continuum of their family-building experience.
- Why did Vios and Kindbody merge?
Kindbody and Vios are stronger together. We are unified by our shared mission of accessible care for all, our vision and our values. We are thrilled to see two female-led teams come together to provide the best patient-centered fertility care in the market.
- Will Vios be offering gynecology or OB services now?
The overarching service of both Kindbody and Vios is fertility and family-building care. Some Kindbody locations have GYN practitioners on staff.
Additionally, there are some GYNs who provide fertility care under the direction of REIs.
Kindbody and Vios have always and will continue to refer OB patients to their OBGYN for prenatal care between 8 – 10 weeks of pregnancy. Our provider relationships are extremely important to us and we will continue to foster them.
- Will any locations change?
No. This union allows Kindbody and Vios to increase access to fertility and family-building care. All current locations will remain open and we will be opening additional clinics nationwide. Upcoming clinic openings: Denver, CO in March; Washington, D.C. in April; Houston,TX; Dallas,TX; Miami, FL in Q2 and Seattle, WA; Philadelphia, PA; Brooklyn, NY; Irvine, CA; and East Bay, CA in Q3 and Charlotte, NC; and a third LA location in Q4.
- Will the cost of care stay the same?
The cost of care will not immediately change for any and all current patients.
We will embark on a thoughtful, strategic integration process to ensure a clean and uninterrupted evolution that captures the best of both organizations. Patients will receive ample notice of any changes.
Over time we may roll out new pricing or packages as part of standard business efforts to continuously improve patient care and we will keep you apprised of significant changes.
- Do we direct our referral to Vios or to Kindbody?
Please continue to refer your patients to Vios. We will embark on a thoughtful, strategic integration process to ensure a clean and uninterrupted evolution that captures the best of both organizations. We will keep you apprised of significant changes and ensure you have updated marketing materials to help in streamlining communication with your patients.
