Will Obamacare Cover Infertility?

The big question now that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, is whether or not infertility coverage will be available to all women and couples that want it.

I was unable to find anything after doing a search for any coverage specific to fertility or infertility. However, since part of the mandate is that you will be able compare different insurance options through state exchanges, you may end up lucky and be able to find a policy that includes coverage for infertility. What you should probably do right now if either you do not have insurance for whatever reason, or do have insurance but are not happy with what is and is not covered, is start making a list of what you “must” have covered by a new policy.

The state insurance exchanges will not be available until 2014, but some states may comply early with this part of the mandate and have their exchanges live earlier than that. You need to be ready to find the insurance policy that will offer you the biggest benefit for the smallest price.

No, it’s not going to change over night, and yes, there is a long wait ahead, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It may be a dim light, but we, as a vocal group, can brighten that light by writing to our senators and representatives and let them know that there needs to be a change to not only state law, but federal law mandating the coverage of infertility in every single state!

  1. I NEED a TUBALIGATION REVERSAL- To restore my health. I was diagnosed with PTLS (Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome) I am praying for ObamaCare to include tubligation Reversals in the new Law. Not just IVF treaments. I want to feel whole again. I want to not be mentally distraught over my decision to get a tubaligation over 13 years ago. I\’m so saddened by this.

  2. I am praying that the new Obamacare will cover Tubaligation Reversal surgery, not ONLY IVF. Although the majority of women who have had their tubes tied, regret it tremendously, and we think about this horrible decision that we made everyday of our lives. I know in my case I hadba horrible pregnancy and signed the papers at 7 months while completely under distress!!!! Then I also suffered from post partum depression. But everyone who has had a tubaligation doesn\\\\\\\’t necessarily want to have more children, we just want our health restored. We justbwant to be back whole again and for the POST TUBALIGATION SYNDROME TO GO AWAY. WHICH IS A SIDE AFFECT TO HAVING YOUR TUBES TIED. SO I AM REALLY HOPING AND PRAYING THAT THEY SON\\\\\\\’T JUST PAY FOR IVF… BECAUSE ITS JUST ONE ASPECT OF IT ALL. I HAD MY TUBES TIED AT 23 YEARS OF AGE. CLEARLY THAT WAS TOO YOUNG JUST TO MAKE SUCH AN LIFE ALTERING DECISION AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE. I WANT THE HOT FLASHES TO GO AWAY, THE PAINFUL PERIODS THAT MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I AM GOING INTO LABOR, TO GO AWAY. THE OVARIAN CYSTS GO AWAY-THAT I DIDN\\\\\\\’T HAVE. THE PCOS THAT I DIDN\\\\\\\’T HAVE BEFORE I HAD THE TUBALIGATION. THE UTERINE FIBROIDS THAT I DID NOT HAVE. THE MALE HORMNES THAT I DID NOT HAVE, THE MUSTACHE AND BEARD! THAT I DID NOT HAVE OH UEAH AND THE CHEST HAIR THAT\\\\\\\’S SO EMBARASSING. SO I REALLY HOPE THAT THEY DON\\\\\\\’T ONLY COVER JUST IVF BECAUSE IVF WILL NOT CURE OR HELP MY PROBLEMS… LET ME ADD, I DO NOT GET WELFARE, I WORK AND HAVE A HUSBAND AND HAVE MARRIED OVER 10 YEARS.

    • Here I wanna some information about a Medical term that is cleald Tubal Ligation reversal …An overwhelmingly large number of women who have previously had children will make an early decision to have a tubal ligation as a method of contraception. After their tubes are ligated (“tied”), the tubes are closed so that an egg and a sperm are thereby prevented from moving into the uterus for implantation and growth. Many women, however, regret this decision later in life as they desire to have more children. Some will decide to have their Tubal Ligation reversed. Certain gynecologists who have been specially trained to put these delicate tubes back together can perform a reversal through a Microsurgical Tubal Reanastomosis (MTR).
