We’re ready to help you take advantage of New York’s newly enacted Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act – FAFTA. The FAFTA mandate may help you finance the cost of building your family – today – and in the future. Large-group insurance plans must now cover the cost of egg freezing and sperm freezing – for fertility preservation – in cases where patients have been diagnosed with a medical condition, such as:
- Endometriosis Diagnosis
- Cancer Diagnosis
- Sickle Cell Anemia
Egg Freezing Cost Coverage – FAFTA Mandate
Women suffering from endometriosis often have dramatically lower ovarian reserves – a covered medical condition. All insurance plans are obligated to cover the cost and expense of freezing eggs or sperm when needed due to a medical reason.
Many women today are deciding to delay motherhood past their prime reproductive years – age 18 to 35. A woman’s egg quality precipitously declines after age 37. Modern egg freezing technology helps women have peace of mind when choosing to postpone pregnancy to further their careers or to find a life partner. Socially-inspired egg freezing procedure costs and banking expenses for future fertility preservation are generally not mandated by New York’s newly enacted Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act – FAFTA. However, when a woman is suffering from a medical condition, such as endometriosis, the freezing of her quality eggs should be covered by medical insurance to increase her chances of a future pregnancy.
Bottom Line: You should always consult with a fertility specialist to make sure whether or not you have a medical condition that may kick in your insurance benefits.
