Insurance mandates critical for improving access to infertility care: study

State infertility insurance mandates are critical for improving access to infertility care. They also help to advance gender equality and reproductive rights.

These are some of the major findings of a literature review and critical assessment of in vitro fertilization (IVF) state mandates for third-party insurance coverage in the United States published in the journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology.

“Infertility is one of the most common medical conditions in America,” said first author Benjamin Peipert, MD, chief resident in ob/gyn at Duke University, noting that the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) estimates that less than a quarter of infertile couples have sufficient access to infertility care.

New Jersey is one of just 20 states that mandates coverage for IVF. Learn more at this page on our web site and call us with any questions.
