Dr. Adamson shares if medical insurance will cover fertility treatments.
Dr. David Adamson:
Insurance coverage of fertility treatments is extremely varied around the country. There are one or two states that have good fertility coverage because it’s mandated by a law, but in most places in the country the coverage is very variable and depends entirely on the type of insurance that the woman has.
And so it’s really important if a woman is planning on having children to look into her insurance to see that she has really reproductive health benefits that will be helpful for her.
