Infertility Insurance

In Illinois, USA, there’s an Infertility Insurance Coverage Mandate Law that requires Insurance companies to provide coverage for infertility. IVF insurance is provided by some companies and it covers the cost of in vitro fertilization.

In Vitro Fertilization or IVF is the most common process that couples undergo when they can’t bear a child. It’s not only couples who do this but single women who wants to bear a child without a partner, or lesbian couples. IVF is an expensive process and even with In Vitro, there’s still a little chance that couples will conceive. I guess that's why Congressmen in Illinois feel the need to provide coverage for Illinois citizens.

Now that’s something that insurance companies in the Philippines should provide, however, with the current population problem there, I don’t think that any congressman would jump at the chance to make a similar law.
