Infertility Insurance in Columbia, SC
When you begin your fertility treatments, you may feel shocked at how quickly the expense can add up, especially when multiple treatment cycles are necessary. For those who turn to their insurance companies to pick up some of the cost, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise. Many times, insurance companies do not cover infertility treatments, or only cover a small portion.
Currently, approximately 15 states have mandates in place that require insurance companies to either cover infertility treatments or to offer infertility insurance coverage. Unfortunately, South Carolina is not one of these states that has a state mandate in place.
Before you start your infertility treatments, it is a good idea to talk directly with a representative from your insurance plan to determine what exactly will be covered. This can give you a clear idea of what cost to expect, and an opportunity to research fertility financing programs.
