Fertility clinics have become some of the most lucrative types of healthcare businesses within the United States. This is primarily due to the fact that these clinics receive a significant portion of their revenues directly from patients as well as a offsetting amount from private insurance companies. For high-end insurance plans, some or all costs relating to fertility issues are covered. However, many insurance businesses still do not provide a significant reimbursement for fertility services – and as such, the onus of paying for these fertility clinic services falls on the patient. It should be noted that given that many people are waiting until their early 30s to mid 30s to have children – the prevalence of fertility issues has increased. As such, the demand for in vitro fertilization as well as related services has exploded over the past 15 years. This trend is expected to continue in perpetuity as people are waiting longer before they have families.

As this is a healthcare business, many banks and lenders are more than happy to provide almost all of the capital necessary to launch a new fertility clinic. In the majority of states, these clinics must be owned and operated by a qualified physician that can render fertility services to the general public. If an individual is looking to start one of these businesses using bank capital then they are going to need a business plan. The fertility clinic business plan should feature a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. These figures should fall in line with industry standards. Beyond the financial model, a fully developed marketing analysis needs to be included in the documentation as well. This includes an examination of population base, population density, median household income, median family income, percentage of people that have private insurance, and the number of people that are waiting until there 30s before they have children. The last metric is extremely important to note as this will be one of the major determining factors as to whether or not this specific fertility clinic is going to be economically viable.

As it relates to fertility clinic marketing plan, this needs to be developed in conjunction with an advertising agency or marketing firm. There are usually a number of statistics that fertility clinics publish to the general public, and as such these need to be properly developed to showcase this to potential people that are looking to start families. A presence on the Internet is imperative given that people are going to want to know the backgrounds of any physician rendering the services before they commit to becoming patients of the clinic. This website should be listed on long all major search engines. Additional information that should be featured on the web platform include preliminary pricing information, insurance is accepted, hours of operation, and how to get an appointment with the business. Beyond an online and print marketing campaign, it is important that a fertility clinic developed ongoing relationships with area gynecologists, general practitioners, and endocrinologists that will refer women that have fertility issues to the company. Additionally, many fertility clinics also maintain ongoing referral relationships with urologists given that male infertility issues can also cause issues.

A fertility clinic SWOT analysis is also needed when raising capital. This document showcases the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are commonly faced. As it relates to strengths, the barriers to entry for new fertility clinic are extremely high given the fact that it must be a physician that owns and operates his business. The gross margins generated from services range anywhere from 85% to 95% depending on the procedures being offered. For weaknesses, the liabilities associated with a fertility clinic practice are somewhat hot. As such, there are expenses relating to maintaining an expansive malpractice insurance policy. Also, the general operating expenses of these businesses is also very high given that a number of nurses and allied health professionals must be hired to work in conjunction with the physician. As it relates to opportunities, these businesses will frequently hire associate endocrinologists and gynecologists that can work with the owner in expanding the billings of the business. For threats, there’s really no major threat that would impact the way that a fertility clinic does business. As many of these businesses receive their fees directly from patients, they are far less susceptible to changes in public health care policy.

A fertility clinic can be an extremely lucrative type of healthcare business. The average income generated by someone who owns and operates one of these businesses ranges anywhere from $300,000 per year to $600,000 per year depending on their location and types of payment accepted. The demand for service is expected to grow even more over the next two decades.
