IVF & Infertility Treatment Financial Assistance

Infertility insurance companies do not exist to make your treatment affordable. Health insurance companies issue plans that sometimes cover infertility treatments such as hormone stimulating medications, artificial insemination, to In Vitro Fertilization, but most often do not.

Couples often ask the wrong questions about finding coverage for their treatments. There are no companies specializing in infertility policies. Most healthcare plans will not cover infertility unless subject to a state mandate.

Therefore, learn to ask different questions when looking for creative ways to pay for IVF and other expensive protocols.
