New Infertility Treatment Bill Introduced in U.S. House and Senate

Late last month, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Sen Cory Booker (D-NJ) introduced the Access to Infertility Treatment and Care Act, H.R. 5965 and S. 2920, which will help individuals and families affected by infertility by requiring health plans in group and individual markets to cover treatment for the disease. The bill would also require coverage of fertility preservation services for patients undergoing medically necessary procedures that may result in infertility.
