    Anthem Blue Cross CA - coverage inquiry

    Does anyone have experience with Anthem Blue Cross and fertility treatments?
    My coverage says it's not covered but I was wondering if there are any exceptions you may know of considering I'm in my 40s and IUI hasn't worked. I'm reading about some insurance companies covering treatment for over 40 women and don't know how to find out the details. They are very tight lipped when I call and all the out of pocket I'm paying they don't even apply toward my deductible from doctor visits to scans. Very frustrating!

    Sorry for the bad news, but we did not have any coverage through Anthem for IUI either. Mine was before age 35, though; I am not aware of any loopholes for women over 40. The only thing I found that would possibly be covered is if the man goes through a prostate screening; but be sure to have this done at a urologist, not through the fertility clinic. Basically anything done at the fertility clinic will be denied, because your goal is to become pregnant. It seems that insurance companies will cover anything to help you NOT be pregnant, but won't cover anything to HELP you become pregnant.
