Reading between the lines: Infertility and current health insurance policies in the US

Clinical Ethics 9 (4):127-134 (2014)

This article will examine current US health insurance policies for providing fertility services and Assisted Reproductive Technologies and analyze the open-ended policies of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This state in particular will be discussed in depth, as there are virtually no limits on infertility provision or coverage. However, tightening up Massachusetts’s health insurance policies by putting parameters on provision and coverage of Assisted Reproductive Technologies will allow the infertile to continue to access paid-for treatment while ensuring that the goal of health insurance coverage—which I understand to be the provision of paid coverage to address medical conditions—is maintained.
