    Government Agencies which offer insurance coverage for infertility ?

    Does anyone know any government agencies which offer coverage, specifically in the state of Texas.

    Thanks

    I can speak to the federal agencies. (I work for one in Texas) They offer the same plans to all agencies. Some agencies may have an additional plan specific to them, but not many do.

    The feds. offer several insurance plans, but none of them give major IF coverage as far as I can tell. Some of the HMOs cover 50% on IUIs. I am on Blue Cross Federal and it has covered my clomid, ultrasounds, diagnostics, but not the IUI procedure itself (or IVF if we should ever do that).

    check with your VA Hospitals. It varies from area to area but most VA's have numerous health insurance plans for you to choose from. If you're lucky, at least one of those will cover some IVF benefits.

    Just thought that I would add that I work at a Workforce Center that most people think of as the the Texas Workforce Commission. We are actually private contracted and not state workers. Our insurance covers all infertility. We just did 2 IUIs in one cycle with injectibles and were only responsible for around $260, that was our copays for the 12 office visits. Our insurance is with Aetna but a lot of Aetna plans do not cover infertility, we are just blessed to have that additional coverage. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be more than glad to help...Rebecca
