Infertility Insurance in New Orleans
As couples go through their fertility treatment process, they may be surprised at how quickly the costs can add up. Many fertility treatments require more than one course of fertility medication, and often, more than one cycle of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is necessary.
While most insurance companies usually cover other medical treatments, many do not cover fertility treatments. There are only 15 states that have infertility insurance mandates in place, which require insurance companies to either cover fertility treatment or offer coverage for infertility treatment. Unfortunately for New Orleans residents, Louisiana is not one of the states that has an insurance mandate in place.
Although there is no state infertility insurance mandate, it is still important to check with your insurance plan provider before beginning treatment. Some insurance plans do offer some kind of coverage, but it is a good idea to know for sure what is covered before you begin.
