Infertility Insurance Coverage in Jacksonville
The road to family building through fertility treatments can cause financial stress as well as emotional stress. Fertility treatment costs and IVF costs can add up quickly, especially when more than one course of fertility medications or in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle is needed. As a way to help defray the costs, Jacksonville couples may look to infertility insurance..
Currently, there are 15 states that have mandates in place that require health insurance plans to offer coverage for fertility treatment or IVF costs, or to cover fertility treatments. Unfortunately for Jacksonville residents, Florida is one of the states that does not yet have an infertility insurance mandate in place to cover IVF costs or fertility treatment costs..
While there is no state mandate in place, some private insurance plans may still provide some coverage. It is important to talk with a representative from your insurance plan before you begin treatment, so you can determine what exactly is covered. This information will give you a better understanding of your out-of-pocket costs, so you will not be surprised when the bill comes.
Jacksonville residents who would like to lend their support for the creation of an infertility insurance mandate in Florida can sign the petition online.
