RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association applauds the passage of the FY2017 Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies (MilCon-VA) Appropriations Bill. This bill includes an appropriation for funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to cover the costs of reproductive services, including IVF, for veterans who suffered service-related injuries that prevent them from starting or growing their family and also includes adoption assistance services for these veterans.
“We are thrilled that our Veterans will have access to infertility treatments and adoption services to finally have an opportunity to build their family,” said Barbara Collura, President/CEO, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. “This legislation removes an outdated barrier on accessing medically necessary IVF treatments for veterans with a service related injury. Finally, Congress has fixed an inequity that existed between medical care offered to active duty service members and veterans.”
