For most people who choose to pursue it, IVF is one of the biggest financial undertakings of their lives. Unfortunately, with the bulk of insurance plans in the United States still not offering coverage for IVF or other fertility treatments, out-of-pocket costs for patients can be daunting. Currently, only 20 states have passed laws requiring fertility insurance coverage, and of those states, only 14 specifically include IVF coverage.
This leaves a large majority of IVF patients with no other option than to pay for their treatment out of pocket. When you’re already faced with both a medical and financial barrier between growing your family, the last thing you need is surprise costs associated with the process to set you back.
