RESOLVE Applauds Passage of Colorado Infertility Legislation
Colorado to Provide Insurance Coverage for Infertility Treatments
(McLean, VA) – RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association applauds the passage of The Colorado Building Families Act into law. Colorado will provide insurance coverage for infertility treatments, including IVF and fertility preservation, effective January 1, 2022.
This historic legislation makes Colorado the eighteenth state with an infertility insurance law, the twelfth to provide IVF coverage, and the tenth to provide fertility preservation for cancer patients and others whose medical treatment may cause iatrogenic infertility.
Even in this time of crisis, this is amazing news for people in Colorado who can now look forward to increased access to family-building medical treatments,” said Barbara Collura, President /CEO, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. “RESOLVE believes that everyone has the right to build their family and if they need medical intervention to reach their goal, it should be available to all. Greater access to care is now a reality in Colorado and sends a powerful message to other states.
RESOLVE works with grassroots volunteers, professionals, and other organizations across the country to ensure equal access to all family building options for men and women wishing to build their family. By tracking bills in all 50 states, RESOLVE activates its grassroots advocacy network and professionals in the field to respond to bills that are pro-family or anti-family.
RESOLVE was honored to partner with Colorado Fertility Advocates and work together to deliver this win for the Colorado family building community,” said Betsy Campbell, Chief Engagement Officer for RESOLVE, who spearheaded this effort for RESOLVE. “This new law is the result of grassroots advocacy at its finest – of constituents sharing their stories and demanding action. Thanks also to our national coalition partners, including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and Alliance for Fertility Preservation.
