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.

Fertility Preservation Cost Coverage
We are ready to help you to take advantage of New York’s FAFTA mandate to ensure that you have the ability to build your family – today – and in the future. Large-group insurance plans must now cover the cost of egg and sperm freezing – for fertility preservation – in cases where patients have been diagnosed with:
