Description

Tripler Army Medical Center IVF Institute is a fertility clinic in Honolulu, Hawaii. They are the only Clinic for military families on the island, therefore there are pretty busy. They don´t have an independent lab and use the lab of a nearby clinic, the Fertility Institute of Hawaii. Therefore all andrology and embryology procedures must be sent to the outside clinic and paid by pocket due to the fact that the military insurance doesn´t cover it.

They work within a military hospital and their patients have to be in the military or be a direct family of the military, in order to be referred. There is a waiting list that generally is a 6 - 12 month wait.
