Fertility for AllU.S. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand (D-New York) has introduced a bill that would require health insurers to pay for advanced fertility treatments the Senator says would help the 1 in 8 American couples affected by infertility to bear children.


Gillibrand’s Family Building Act would require insurers to cover Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) treatments including in vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT) and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI). The bill would not confine eligibility for ART coverage within a certain age range.

Thousands of women struggle with infertility each year, with insurance companies denying access to the fertility treatments that make the difference for so many,” Senator Gillibrand said in a press release.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
