Infertility Insurance in Philadelphia, PA
When you begin your fertility treatments, you may be surprised at how quickly the fertility treatment and IVF costs can add up, especially when taking into account multiple cycles necessary. Those who look to their insurance companies to cover some of the costs may be in for another surprise, since many insurance plans do not offer infertility insurance.
Currently, there are 15 states that have infertility insurance mandates in place that require insurance companies to either cover infertility treatments or to offer infertility insurance coverage. Unfortunately for Philadelphia residents, Pennsylvania is one of the states that does not have an infertility insurance mandate in place to cover fertility treatment or IVF costs.
Even though there is no state infertility insurance mandate in place in Pennsylvania, it is still a good idea to check directly with your insurance plan before you begin treatment. A representative from your insurance plan will be able to tell you what fertility treatments will and will not be covered. This can give you a closer estimation of what total IVF costs you should be expecting.
