California healthcare plans sometimes help with some of the preliminary and supporting treatment costs associated with In Vitro Fertilization. Most time they pay nothing.

Many couples must pay all these expenses out-of-pocket. Hopefully, mom becomes pregnant shortly thereafter. This then introduces a chain of new expenses. Be prepared.


The infertility mandate profoundly affects many health plans in the state of California. The mandate requires each company to offer at least one policy that covers specified infertility treatments.

Employers choose whether to purchase plans with infertility coverage, and make them available to employees.
