The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) administers an infertility demonstration program (IDP), that provides funding to reimburse qualified providers for in vitro fertilization and gamete intrafallopian transfer services, to insured individuals who meet specific criteria.
To qualify for benefits under IDP, an individual must:
- Reside in New York and be between ages 21-44;
- Have private insurance (not Medicaid);
- Be diagnosed as infertile (defined as the failure to conceive after one year of regular, unprotected intercourse in individuals less than 30 years of age and after six months in individuals 30 and over);
- Have undergone at least four unsuccessful cycles of intrauterine insemination (IUI) and/or ovulation induction, or had previously diagnosed tubal disease, or other pre-existing medical condition that precludes or significantly reduces the likelihood of success for IUI and/or ovulation induction, or have a subfertile partner; and
- Have a household income less than $195,000.
Per established guidelines, the IDP grant will subsidize a maximum of two complete IVF cycles per patient, with the second cycle subject to availability of funds. Incomplete cycles do not count against this lifetime maximum of two cycles. Providers should keep in mind, however, that a woman with more than 3 previous failed IVF attempts (defined as any attempt, whether using a fresh or a cryo-preserved embryo, that does not result in a live birth) may be judged to be a poor candidate for IVF.
For information on the NYS IDP, and to contact a local provider about applying for services, visit the NYSDOH website.
