THE FAIR ACCESS TO FERTILITY TREATMENT ACT (FAFTA)
“The Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act” (FAFTA) requires insurance companies to cover in-vitro fertilization and other treatments for New York families. In addition to requiring insurance coverage for in-vitro fertilization, FAFTA clarifies in state law that infertility is a disease. It ensures coverage for fertility preservation when a medical treatment for cancer, for example, can lead to infertility. It also adds non-discrimination language to allow all eligible individuals to be covered.
