Is there any benefit to using hCG after frozen embryo transfer?

In brief: Unlikely

You mean natural cycle frozen embryo transfer with HCG used to trigger ovulation.
There is no evidence that using HCG has additional benefits compared to awaiting natural lh surge and spontaneous ovulation. Hcg injection though may help with timing of frozen embryo transfer as compared to awaiting lh surge which may be missed or happen in an inconvenient day.
