There are two determinants for infertility coverage. Some states have an insurance mandate that requires infertility coverage. The level of coverage dictated by this mandate varies from state to state. In addition, even in mandated states there may be exemptions to fertility coverage. Another determinant of your level of coverage is your employer. Two employers can both use the same health insurance carrier and can have virtually identical health insurance plans, but one employer may decline infertility coverage whereas the other employer carries infertility coverage.
If your fertility medications are not covered by your insurance or you do not have insurance, please visit the “Self-Pay Options” page on this site to learn more about programs that can help reduce cash-paying customers’ out-of-pocket costs.
Fifteen states currently have infertility insurance mandates. These mandates vary in the level of coverage that health insurance underwriters are required either to offer (otherwise known as a “mandate to offer” or “soft mandate”) or to provide (a “mandate to provide” or “hard mandate”). For example, the Massachusetts and Illinois mandates are hard mandates that compel insurers to provide infertility coverage; the Texas and California mandates are soft mandates that merely compel insurers to offer the coverage to employers. Employers in those states are not obligated to purchase the coverage. Self-insured groups are not required to follow these mandates.
