Financial stressors reach the forefront of concerns when a couple is faced with fertility treatment. Don't be discouraged by the cost of IVF.
Insurance coverage for IVF Cost
While medical insurance in Illinois often covers some aspects of fertility treatment, full coverage is not always the case. Therefore, it is normal to have questions about the cost of fertility treatment and payment plans for IVF. Illinois is one of the states that has a mandate in place regarding fertility treatment. If an insurance plan covers more than 25 employees and offers coverage for pregnancy, it must also provide coverage for fertility care. There are some requirements that women must meet before the mandate applies. Additionally, religious institutions are not required to adhere to the mandate if the fertility treatments go against their beliefs. To understand what is covered by your insurance coverage, you can speak with the insurance expert at your fertility center.
Payment Plans for IVF
