Patient Advocacy

ASRM's patient advocacy efforts have made a significant difference in the lives of patients. As a result of ASRM's advocacy, more patients have access to insurance coverage for infertility treatment, and more patients receive high-quality reproductive health care. ASRM's patient advocacy efforts will continue to play a vital role in ensuring that all patients have the opportunity to achieve their reproductive health goals.

State and Territory Infertility Insurance Laws

One way that ASRM works to improve access to fertility care is by advocating for insurance coverage for reproductive medicine care. ASRM believes that all patients should have access to the care they need. ASRM engages with insurance companies, employers, and policymakers to advocate for infertility treatment to be covered by insurance. See the Insurance Law Breakdown

Reproductive Rights and You

The U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (597 U.S. __, 2022), overturned the nearly 50-year precedent set by Roe v. Wade (410 U.S. 113, 1973), which had recognized a constitutional right to abortion. The Dobbs decision has sparked a litany of changes in state laws across the nation, and more are expected.

Contact Your Congressional Representatives

Posting on social media is great but calling or meeting with your legislators is the most effective.

Know the status of legislation. Refer to a bill by number whenever possible. Remember that a legislator’s time is limited, as is the time of his or her staff. Write the chair or members of a committee holding hearings on legislation. Find your legislators’ information
