Fertility Coverage Measure Updated

June 10, 2016

Rep. Perone lauds a change reported by the Connecticut Insurance Department to cover medically necessary infertility treatment for women over 40 years of age, fully implementing legislation he previously championed through the legislature. Ten years ago I got a bill passed that mandated the coverage of infertility. The only downside was that coverage was capped at age at 40. This action, which applies to state-regulated insurance policies initiated or renewed after January 1, 2016, finally removes the age cap on our infertility coverage law.
