DENVER, Jan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Shady Grove Fertility Colorado welcomes new patients who now have access to world-class fertility and family-building care through the Colorado Building Families Act.
“As the Colorado Building Families Act takes effect, SGF Colorado is excited to work with individuals and couples who now have greater access to fertility and family-building care,” shares Alex Polotsky, M.D., Medical Director at SGF Colorado. “It is an honor walk alongside patients in their family-building journey and this momentous legislation will allow us to help more people achieve their dreams of parenthood.”
The Colorado Building Families Act requires large-group insurance plans issued or renewed in Colorado to cover the diagnosis of infertility, treatment for infertility, and fertility preservation services. The new mandate provides for three completed egg retrievals and unlimited embryo transfers, as well as fertility preservation for people with cancer and others at risk of medically induced infertility. The definition of infertility for the new coverage includes the LGBTQ+ community and unpartnered individuals.
