Patient Guide
The Midwest Center for Reproductive Health, P.A.

Thank you for choosing The Midwest Center for Reproductive Health, P.A. (MCRH). Please accept our
warmest welcome to you from the staff at MCRH, as well as our thanks for your interest in the services we
provide. We understand the struggles that you face and truly strive to provide the finest care possible in a
compassionate and professional environment. It is our hope that we will lay the foundation for success with
our individualized treatment based on the unique needs of each patient. We ask that you use this information
as a guide in order to familiarize you with MCRH and prepare yourself for what to expect before, during, and
beyond your first appointment.
Before Your Appointment:
To ensure your new patient appointment is most beneficial to you, we begin by asking that the following forms
be thoughtfully completed and received in our office one week before your appointment. Please feel free to
return your completed forms by mail or fax to (763) 494-7706. If you choose to fax your completed forms,
please bring the original copy to your scheduled appointment. If you have a copy of your medical records, you
may include a copy with the following forms:

___ Patient Registration Form and Consent for Treatment
– Carefully read and complete both pages of
this form. Since this serves as a consent for services, completion of this form is required before your appointment. Be sure to have both patient and spouse or partner (if applicable) initial, sign, and date. ___ History Forms (both female and spouse/partner) – Each of you should individually complete the
appropriate form to the best of your knowledge. Please indicate “not applicable” when this is the case. Completion of these forms allows the staff at MCRH to better understand your individual situation and provide a more individualized discussion during your consultation.
____ Medical Records – It is most beneficial if medical records from current and/or previous infertility
treatment are received in our office before your consultation. In order to expedite the transfer of your
previous medical records, enclosed is an “Authorization for Release of Medical Information” form for
you to return directly to your physician. If you and/or your partner have more than one physician that
you have been working with, please feel free to duplicate or to ask MCRH for additional copies of this
form. Any medical records released from other facilities will have pertinent information extracted and will
be returned to you at the time of your new patient consultation. If your new patient consultation is done
via phone, the records will be mailed back to you.
____ Preparing for Pregnancy – Please read this guide for information to best optimize your chances for
You should also expect a telephone call from one of the MCRH nursing staff before your appointment. The nurse will confirm your appointment, the receipt of your new patient paperwork and your medical records, and will ask any questions regarding your medical history. This phone conversation will help further to clarify your individual situation and any specific topics you wish to discuss during your initial consultation.
What to Expect at Your New Patient Appointment:
Your initial appointment is scheduled as a consultation with Dr. Corfman. In order to give you both the
opportunity to meet him and other members of the MCRH team, we strongly recommend both you and your
spouse or partner attend the new patient consultation. During this appointment you will have the opportunity to
have a dialogue between you and Dr. Corfman, review any previous treatments, and discuss options for further
treatment. Generally, this appointment is approximately 30 minutes in length however, please keep in mind
that your appointment may be longer or shorter depending on your unique requirements. It is with sensitivity
to all patients and with regards to the particular nature of our practice, we ask that children do not
accompany you to your appointment.
Office

Location:
Our office is located in Maple Grove, MN. Please see the map on our website for specific location. There are also many additional satellite locations in other areas as well.

Cancellation Policy:
A fee will apply for appointments not cancelled at least 72 hours in advance. While we regret the need to
do this, this policy allows us to better serve all of our patients who may be waiting for an appointment
time.
Billing and Insurance Policies and Questions:
Understanding your medical insurance coverage and your benefits for infertility treatment can be
confusing and time consuming. Our Business Office staff is available to answer questions as they arise.
However, because plans vary greatly, it is probably best to start by contacting your insurance company
directly. Please see the Insurance and Financial Information on our website.
The fee for a new patient consultation is generally $370, although this can vary depending on the amount of time spent, the complexity of your medical history, and your options for treatment. This appointment may or may not be covered by insurance and includes chart preparation, extraction of your previous medical records, medical records review with a member of the nursing staff before your appointment, and your physician consultation. MCRH participates with a number of insurance plans, however, coverage caries. We ask you to contact your insurance company before your appointment. If we do not participate directly with your insurance, there may be “out of network” benefits allowing you to see Dr. Corfman. If you have questions or concerns regarding fees or insurance coverage, please contact the
Business Office by calling (763) 494-7736.
Many times all it takes is a phone call to ease your
insurance concerns and answer your questions.
We look forward to meeting you at your new patient consultation.
Please do not hesitate to call with further questions.

Preparing for Pregnancy
While conception is as easy as "falling off a log" for some people, it is not so easy for many of us. We all know
couples who are unhealthy and choose unhealthy lifestyles, yet seem to have no trouble becoming pregnant.
Two of the most important lifestyle factors negatively impacting pregnancy and chances of becoming pregnant
are smoking and obesity. The medical literature is full of information which shows smoking (yes, even use of
chewing tobacco) and being overweight significantly decreases chances to conceive. Furthermore, both
smoking and being overweight have very serious negative effects upon you and your unborn baby, and on
your baby’s health after birth.
Just as the pilot of an airplane meticulously prepares and performs preflight planning, so, too, should you
prepare to become pregnant. When you ask our team at The Midwest Center for Reproductive Health to help
you launch and "get this baby off the ground," we recognize that you are also committing to do what is
necessary to optimize chances for success. We take your commitment very seriously, just as we take
seriously our commitment to help you achieve a pregnancy and a healthy baby.
For those of you who are significantly overweight, we want you to know that we do not wish to begin infertility
treatment until you are in a position to be successful. What defines being "significantly overweight"? The
National Institutes of Health has adopted a measurement which correlates height and weight with health risks,
termed the body mass index (BMI). Studies have shown a body mass index between 19 and 25 to be in a
healthy range, whereas a BMI of 30 or greater to be associated with significant health risks. To determine your
BMI please go to www.bmi-calculator.net or consult with your local health care provider.
Should your BMI be above 30, it is important for you to know that many studies have shown significant
negative impacts upon your chances to conceive, greatly increased chances of complications during your
pregnancy and increased chances for health problems in your baby. With this in mind, we discourage initiation
of infertility treatment until your BMI is 30 or under.
Having a BMI over 30 is not only a problem for women trying to conceive, but also for men. Sperm function is
significantly compromised with elevated BMI.
Should your BMI be 35 or greater, we ask that you seek care with your local health care provider and establish
a plan for reducing your BMI before you schedule an appointment with Dr. Corfman.
Should you be users of tobacco products, it is important for you to be tobacco and smoke-free before you
initiate infertility treatment. When you do your part to prepare for pregnancy, you put yourself in an excellent
position to be a parent of a healthy baby. We know that is your goal, and we will be there to help you when
you’re ready.

limited to accessing only the information that you and your spouse/partner (if applicable) designate and does not give any
other rights to the person you have named on the form. Use of this form will enable us to provide your joint health
information to a person or entity that may be involved in your healthcare. Due to the nature of treatment received at MCRH
and its subsidiaries, records for patient and spouse/partner will be maintained jointly and this Authorization pertains to all
medical records regarding patient and spouse/partner (if applicable).
The following outline will describe the information we will need on the form and its purpose. Please address any questions
you have with our staff.
Directions for Completion of Authorization for Release of Medical Information Form
Patient Information: Please complete the entire section with patient demographic information.
Clinic/Health Provider: This identifies who is to provide the release of Protected Health Information.
Receiving Party: This information identifies a person or entity you and your spouse/partner (if applicable) have
authorized the Provider to release your PHI.
Description of Information to be Released: The type and amount of health information that we disclose is determined by
you and your spouse/partner (if applicable). We can disclose or provide access to all of your health information or it can be
limited to a specific item.
Release Type: This information tells us how you would like your PHI transmitted to a person or entity. Please see our
Medical Record Release and Payment policy for more information. If you wish to view your records, please contact
MCRH at 800-508-9763 to schedule a medical record review appointment.
Release Purpose: The purpose of your release of PHI is required to be documented by MCRH. This also helps us in
determining if a fee is applicable for reproduction of records.
Termination or Expiration: The Authorization will expire at the end of the calendar year of your last signature unless you
specify an earlier termination. You must renew or submit a new Authorization after the expiration date to continue the
Authorization. Please list the date of expiration if earlier than the end of the calendar year. You have the right to terminate
the Authorization at any time by submitting a written request to our Privacy Manager. Termination of this Authorization will
be effective upon written notice, except where a disclosure has already been made based on prior authorization. MCRH
may require a signed Authorization on disclosures.
Redisclosure Statement: The practice places no condition to sign the Authorization on the delivery of healthcare or
treatment. We have no control over the person(s) you have listed to receive your protected health information. Therefore,
your PHI disclosure under this authorization may no longer be protected by the requirements of the Privacy Rule and will
no longer be the responsibility of the practice.
Signature and Date: Because your medical records are kept jointly at MCRH, both patient and spouse/partner (if
applicable) will need to sign and date the Authorization. PHI on both parties will be released unless indicated under
Information to be Released.
Copies: We will provide you with a copy of this signed authorization upon request.
