Is IVF Covered in California?
In California insurers and employers are required to offer coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, however they are not required to cover the IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) treatment itself.
For prospective patients in California, this means that your insurance provider is required to offer coverage for testing and diagnosis, but your plan itself may not include it. With that said, many fertility clinics are able to bill your initial consultation and diagnostic testing under investigation of a general disease. You can contact clinics below to see what may be covered by your insurance.
The mandate means that most people in California do have to pay for IVF treatment out of pocket, unless their employer offers coverage for fertility treatments. We recommend using IVF Options to compare fertility clinics to find the right option for your needs and budget.
