About Health Insurance Coverage
Health insurance guarantees that an individual will not have to bear the entire burden of his/her health care expenses. But in the case of infertility, the majority of patients bear the responsibility of covering the costs of treatment. Depending on the cause of the fertility problem and the therapy used to treat the problem, that cost can be considerable.
No one expects to receive the diagnosis of infertility. Yet more than 7 million Americans are subject to that diagnosis. No one expects that their insurance company will deny them coverage for this medical condition. But most do. A major impediment to access to treatment to resolve infertility is insurance coverage.
