Senator Cory Booker and Congresswoman and House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro have re-introduced the Access to Infertility Care and Treatment Act, which requires certain insurers to provide coverage for infertility treatment, including fertility preservation services.
ASRM President Hugh Taylor, M.D. is quoted in the Senator’s press release heralding the re-introduction of this critical legislation as follows:
“This pro-family legislation is important for people living with the diseases of infertility and cancer, and provides hope for Americans who want to build families. Senator Booker's and Representative DeLauro’s leadership demonstrates their commitment to medical equity when it comes to access to reproductive health care.”
