Learn which insurance providers Illume Fertility accepts and get more information about Connecticut and New York state mandates for fertility coverage.
Note: We are not in-network with Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis or any other government funded plans. If you have an HMO plan, you may require a referral to Illume Fertility.
Only 19 states in the United States have infertility mandates for insurance coverage - and we are lucky to have mandated coverage in Connecticut and New York!
While these state mandates do have limitations and exclusions, they can help residents of both Connecticut and New York afford fertility treatment by requiring large group insurance providers to cover certain fertility tests, treatment and other procedures related to infertility.
Health insurance is indispensable, but it can certainly add to the complexities of the choices you make when pursuing fertility treatment.
At Illume Fertility, we try to lessen that stress by helping you work with your insurance company to determine your level of coverage and your out-of-pocket expenses (when applicable). We also review the specific details of your insurance plan for infertility treatment with you.
To help you get started, we explain the different types of insurance plans and offer infertility insurance tips below.

This written document is your most effective tool if you need to challenge a decision or file an appeal for payment with your insurance company at a later date.
Establishing a point of contact with a representative at the insurance company is a good idea and may make follow-up easier. Keep a log of all phone conversations with your insurance company, including the date and time of the conversation and the name of the person with whom you speak.
