ASRM Today: The New ASRM Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force with Michael Thomas

"I'm not seeing a patient who is Asian. I'm not seeing a patient who is Hispanic. I'm not seeing a patient who is of African descent. And it may not necessarily hit you [that] a lot of times you aren't seeing them because of the fact that they can't get to the door - either because they can't afford your services or because there is a stigma in their community for infertility services." - Michael Thomas, M.D.

SART Fertility Experts - Infertility Advocacy and Government Affairs.

In today's episode, Dr. Mark Trolice interviews Sean Tipton, ASRM's Chief Advocacy and Policy Officer. Many infertility patients do not have insurance coverage for treatment. Currently, nearly 40% of states in the U.S. have mandates for some form of infertility coverage but there are limitations and not all include IVF, fertility preservation, the LGBTQ population and veterans of the military. In this episode, we discuss the current landscape of infertility insurance coverage, the hurdles to obtain state and/or national mandated coverage, and methods of advocacy for both patients and doctors to improve coverage. Learn – Why the challenge? Who can make a difference? What’s the price to pay?
