Fertility Coverage by Health Insurance Companies. Covered? Or not?

Nevada Insurance Enrollment Answers Are Fertility Services Covered or Not?

LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- The Rise of Fertility Treatments
Fertility treatments have become increasingly common. In fact, according to one study, one in three adults either used fertility treatments or know someone who has. If you are considering infertility services, knowing your options for paying for services can help you make informed decisions.

Does Health Insurance Cover Fertility Services?
In general, health insurance companies cover services that your doctor deems to be medically necessary. If you have an ACA-compliant health insurance policy, then there are 10 essential benefits that your health insurance company is legally required to cover.

While this coverage is fairly robust, it does not cover everything. If you seek treatments that are not considered to be medically necessary, meaning that they are not necessary for your health or evaluating, diagnosing or treating an illness, injury or disease, then you should speak with a health insurance agent that can look into the individual plan benefits thoroughly for you to see what services might be covered. Services that are not usually covered include cosmetic surgery, weight loss programs, adult vision or dental services (you can, however, get coverage for vision/dental separately).

Where You Live Matters
As of April 2021, the majority of states do not require private health insurance companies to cover fertility services. In California and Texas, health insurance companies have to offer at least one plan that includes this coverage. In 15 states, health insurance companies have to cover at least some fertility services.

While Nevada currently does not require health insurance companies to cover fertility services, it has a benchmark plan that does cover some fertility treatments.

Limitations on Fertility Treatment Coverage
Even if you live in a state that requires health insurance coverage for fertility treatments, there may be certain requirements that you have to meet to have services covered. For example, if you have unexplained infertility, you might only qualify for in vitro fertilization after a period of time or a specified number of in-vitro cycles.

Some states with required coverage for fertility treatments do not cover IVF, or they may only cover treatment up to a certain dollar amount. Other states only cover cryopreservation for someone whose fertility is expected to be compromised due to a medical diagnosis or treatment.
