The Illinois Civil Union Act of 2011
The Illinois Civil Union Act of 2011 established civil unions between same sex couples. Civil union provides these couples with equal legal obligations, protections, and parental benefits granted as are afforded to married opposite sex couples in the state.
Illinois Insurance Mandate
Illinois has a mandate requiring all insurers to cover the costs of treating infertility. Those employer insurance plans covering 25 or more people and providing pregnancy and birth related benefits must cover the costs of diagnosing and treating infertility. As part of this mandate, lesbian couples no longer have to prove that they have had unprotected intercourse with a man for a year with no pregnancy success in order to receive coverage.
A Vast Array of Family Building Options
LGBTQ family building options result much higher pregnancy success rates than do same sex couples because a medical condition is typically not present to hinder fertility. Same sex couples are realizing their dream of having a family through a variety of ART procedures. A personalized treatment plan typically allows at least one of the partners in a same sex relationship to be biologically related to their child.
