Aetna for IVF


#1

Hi,

My husband is weighing a job opportunity. We are not sure if the company’s insurance i.e. Aetna has coverage for infertility. We have the group plan and I was wondering if it is possible for me to call aetna and inquire what all is covered.

Any suggestions how to go on form here or if it’s even a good idea to do that?.

Thanks…

100% call them before you pick. I know I called each insurance company that I was considering when we switched to see if they covered any part of IVF because most of them for my job do not.

Definitely call and know which plan you have. We have Aetna but it does not cover IVF only IUI. A friend has Aetna and it covers IVF but only after trying certain protocols.
Good luck.

Whether or not they cover IVF will be company specific. They will cover it if the company is paying for the service package which includes IVF. I’m not sure if Aetna will tell you if you inquire about “Company ABC’s infertility coverage.” It’s worth a try, but your best bet is to talk to a benefits coordinator at the Company directly, if that’s possible.
