Infertility Insurance in Iowa
Your road to family building through assisted reproductive technology may quickly become costly. Infertility treatments are expensive, and many times, more than one course of treatment is necessary. However, when couples turn to their insurance company to help cover some of the cost, many are in for an unpleasant surprise.
Currently, only around 15 states have mandates in place that require insurance companies to provide infertility coverage or offer infertility coverage. Unfortunately for Iowa residents, Iowa is not one of the states that requires infertility coverage.
Although Iowa does not have a state mandate requiring insurance coverage, you should still check with your insurance plan’s representative before beginning treatment. Some private plans do offer coverage, and it is important to know what exactly your plan covers before you start treatment.
