COVID is making fertility benefits more popular

According to an article in Employee Benefit Advisor, the COVID-19 pandemic may have a bright spot: more fertility benefits offered by employers.

The article states that there has been “a surge in utilization” for benefits like egg freezing, adoption, surrogacy and other fertility-related services.

“There seems to be a focus on family and family services, which is perhaps one of the positive things that’s come out of such a difficult time,” says Peter Nieves, chief commercial officer at WINFertility, a fertility and family planning benefits provider. “[Employees] want to make sure they’re preserving their ability to build their family when the timing is more appropriate.”

Be sure to ask your employer about fertility coverage.
