"The biggest hurdle may not be the fertility treatment but the cost." The American Pregnancy Association estimates the cost of a single IVF treatment at ,000 to ,000.
"The difference is that women with coverage were more likely to come back and try again if they were initially unsuccessful.
Given that they had the ability to try more times, they had a higher chance of giving birth." Nationwide, 15 states have infertility insurance laws, according to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
