Support HR2892--Infertility Treatment Coverage Legislation In 2002, it was reported by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that 7.2 million women suffered from infertility. The statistics showed that one out of every six couples in the United States had experienced infertility. This number represents a drastic increase from 6.1 million women, in 1995. Experts estimated that in 2005 approximately 3 million women suffered from secondary infertility. Secondary infertility is the inability to conceive or carry a pregnancy, after having successfully conceived and carried one or more pregnancies. According to Resolve, that figure represents an increase from an estimated 1.8 million women in 1995. Where are the statistics from 2008 If so many more million Americans are suffering today, where have all our insurance companies gone ______________________________________________________ Dear [Decision Maker], I am writing to ask that you co-sponsor the following bill that would provide coverage for infertility treatment: HR 2892, The Family Building Act (Rep. Anthony Weiner) which would require insurance coverage of infertility treatments by all health plan providers that already cover obstetrical benefits. We, the undersigned, are requesting your help to enact an infertility insurance mandate. Currently, 14 states in the U.S. are required to offer or treat infertility. These mandates were designed to make conception more affordable (and less emotionally draining) to the 1 of 6 couples that struggle with the problem. Furthermore, in these mandated states, infertility treatments are more successful and less risky for the mother and child. Such mandates only cost subscribers approximately $2 a month. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), only a select few (10-15%) require the more advanced and highly-publicized Assisted Reproductive Techniques, such as in vitro fertilization. Other men and women can be treated by less expensive methods. Without the assistance of insurance to pay for treatments ranging from medications to IVF, many people will never experience the joy of pregnancy, childbirth, or watching their child grow. Sincerely,
