For fully insured employer health plans, NH’s infertility bill, passed earlier in 2019, is slated to go into effect for 2020. Depending on the insurance carrier, coverage may go into effect 1/1/20, or upon the renewal date in 2020.
Insurance carriers will be required to provide coverage for diagnosis, fertility treatment and fertility preservation. Experimental procedures, voluntary sterilization reversal and surrogate costs are excluded from the mandate.
The mandate does not apply to individual plans, SHOP plans or self-insured employer plans.
