Can we all move to Massachusetts?
Look at the coverage they are required to provide people dealing with infertility:
•All insurers providing pregnancy-related benefits shall provide for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility including the following: artificial insemination; IVF; GIFT; sperm, egg and/or inseminated egg procurement and processing, and banking of sperm or inseminated eggs, to the extent such costs are not covered by the donor’s insurer, if any; ICSI; ZIFT;
•Insurers shall not impose any exclusions, limitations or other restrictions on coverage of infertility drugs that are different from those imposed on any other prescription drugs;
•Insurers are not required to cover (but are not prohibited from covering) experimental infertility procedures, surrogacy, reversal or voluntary sterilization or cryopreservation of eggs;
•Employers who self-insure are exempt from the requirements of the law;
•No lifetime cap on coverage;
•No maximum IVF cycles.
My state ranks in the top 10, but I am still super jealous of what the residents of MA are able to get. When will people start viewing infertility as a disease/disorder and provide adequate coverage for it.
