A group of Democrats in the House and Senate want OPM to add coverage for infertility treatment to the FEHB.
A group of Democrats in the House and Senate sent a letter to Office of Personnel Management director Kiran Ahuja urging the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHB) to include coverage for infertility diagnosis and treatment.
According to the lawmakers, adding this coverage to the FEHB is “in our national interest” because it will allow “the Federal Government to recruit and retain the most effective Federal workforce.”
The letter cites a study which found that employees without infertility treatment coverage “often express dissatisfaction with employer-sponsored [health] coverage.”
