Insurance and Fertility Treatment
New Jersey is one of the few states that offers insurance coverage for fertility treatment and has a mandate to do so. While this is helpful for many families, the intricacies of infertility coverage with your specific insurance company can be challenging. Once you have become a patient of South Jersey Fertility Center, you will receive a detailed insurance confirmation package that will outline your specific coverage. We accept most major insurance carriers and remain an Aetna Center of Excellence. We encourage you to review this information and confirm it with your insurance company since the policy is between you and the insurance company.
Basic Guidelines for Major Insurance Carriers
Many insurance companies have specific criteria that must be met for coverage, and some may request medical records to verify coverage for certain treatment options. If medical necessity letters are required, this may take up to 30 days.
Insurance companies also typically have limitations on their coverage, such as a maximum lifetime benefit coverage (up to $5000, $10,000, etc.). Many plans require lesser before greater treatment prior to approval (such as injectable or oral ovulation medications prior to more aggressive treatments, like IVF). Some insurance plans have high deductible and/or large co-insurances that you will have to meet.
PGT-A is typically not covered by insurance, so patients may need to pay out of pocket for this. PGT-M/PGT-SR may be covered with medical necessity, but some patients must pay out of pocket and be reimbursed by insurance. If authorizations are required, they can take 7-15 days from the date of submission of paperwork.
