With respect to coverage for fertility diagnosis and treatment and
fertility preservation services (fertility services) under health benefit
plans, the bill clarifies that coverage for fertility services under large
employer policies and contracts is not subject to a determination as to
whether federal law requires the state to defray the costs of the coverage,

and, therefore, large employer plans issued or renewed in this state must
cover fertility services, and the division of insurance in the department of
regulatory agencies (division) must implement the coverage requirement.
In addition, for individual and small group policies and contracts,
the bill:
  • Requires coverage for fertility services under individual
and small group policies and contracts issued on or after
the January 1 following the calendar year in which the
division receives confirmation from the federal department
of health and human services (federal department), or the
federal department otherwise determines, that coverage for
fertility services does not require defrayal by the state; and
  • Requires the division to implement the fertility services
coverage requirement once effective.
