Fertility treatment can be expensive, so it’s no surprise that financial concerns are a major concern of those undergoing fertility treatment.

That’s because there are only 15 states that have an infertility insurance mandate in place that requires insurance providers to either offer coverage or provide coverage for fertility treatment.

Some private plans do offer some coverage, even if it’s just for services provided in the diagnostic stage.
