Abstract

Creating a 21st century insurance benefit for infertility should be cost effective. Savings can be realized by eliminating hidden infertility costs, eliminating payments for ineffective treatments, and providing coverage for effective 21st century treatments, thus reducing costs associated with iatrogenic multiple pregnancies. The new benefit allows patients to attempt 21st century forms of infertility treatments while being managed by certified infertility providers. Industry and insurance carriers might save money by examination and implementation of this concept.
