Insurance Coverage for Infertility
Currently, only 19 states have infertility insurance coverage laws, and 10 states have fertility preservation laws for iatrogenic (medically-induced) infertility. In the state of North Dakota, there is no insurance mandate for infertility diagnosis or treatment. Under North Dakota’s current law, patients bear the responsibility of covering the costs of diagnosis and treatment. Depending on the cause of the fertility problem and the therapy used to treat the problem, that cost can be considerable. A major impediment to access to treatment to resolve infertility is insurance coverage.
2021 Legislative Actions
Thank you to all who helped with our call to action and legislative initiatives during the 2021 session. We aren’t finished and will continue to work at increasing access to care for infertility and fertility preservation.
ADVOCACY DAY AND HB 1147
We are back for the 2021 North Dakota Legislative Session bringing awareness to
HB 1147. We invite you to join us virtually for our first-ever Advocacy Day!
During the 2019 North Dakota legislative session, an infertility care and cancer preservation bill moved through committee. SB 2233 did not pass, we will be back during the 2021 session. Until then we will continue to raise awareness on infertility. We would like to thank our bill sponsors and those patients who testified on behalf of this bill.
