This Comment addresses two central issues. First, it discusses the current state of the law for infertility coverage. Second, it analyzes whether health insurance companies should be required to offer infertility treatment coverage as an option, or whether they should be required to provide infertility treatment automatically as part of the policy coverage. The author provides background information on fertility and insurance coverage and surveys the law regarding insurance coverage of infertility treatments. The general focus is on state legislation and asks whether infertility legislation is necessary. The Comment concludes that at a minimum, states should require health insurance companies to offer infertility coverage.
