United Healthcare offers a 10k lifetime max. Unfortunately my hubby just got laid off but thanks for the list of companies. Yahoo! (that's amazing 20k). I used to work for Amgen, benefits are excellent but I was surprised they didn't offer fertiliy coverage-maybe in the future.

Hi! My DH works for Raytheon and I just found out yesterday that our coverage through United Healthcare PPO covers 90% of infertility costs (in network) and 80% (out of network), including $15,000 lifetime for IVF (in network) and $10,000 (out of network). HTH!

sorry, I just moved to California from Canada, not really familiar with the health care system. do you have to work for these companies in order to get that insurance?

Essentially, yes, you have to work for those companies to get Infertility insurance (or another that isn't listed could also have coverage). Generally, without national health care, its the employer that picks what the health insurance plan covers for its employees. It appears that only like 10-20% of companies offer infertility (IVF) coverage. It is hard (and maybe impossible) to ask a hiring manager if they offer this kind of coverage since most dont know and they might not want to hire you if you tell them up front that you want to try to get pregnant right away. So...these lists really help!

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I payed cash for all of the expenses of my last treatment: 2 IVFs and 1 FET and for every little test and ultrasound. Now I'm switching health insurance at work and I'm trying to figure what insurance to get. Any tips?

I work in one of the California offices of Watson Wyatt, a consulting firm. I have a $15,000 Lifetime maximum for Infertility through BCBS. I'm pretty sure this is the same coverage for all their US offices - not sure what the insurance is like for the int'l locations though.

I work for the University of California - after 6 months of research on the different insurance options I was able to find Healthnet offer up to 6 IUI in a lifetime at 50% of the cost and 50% of the meds. However, the out of pocket maximum for a year per person is $1000, so as soon as I have 3 IUI this calendar year, I dont pay a dime for additional IUI. The meds for clomid this month, estrogen, progesterone and HCG Trigger ran me $91.
Hope that helps.
