Public commentary is needed from all of our members to demand that infertility treatment coverage be included as an essential benefit under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by contacting the Department of Health and Human Services before January 31st, 2012.


The decision to include infertility treatment as a covered essential benefit falls solely in the hands of Kathleen Sebelius, US Secretary of Health and Human Services. Public comments are being accepted regarding this potential decision until Tuesday, January 31st. They can be sent directly to [email protected]


While New England is extremely fortunate that half of our regional states have established infertility mandates, the inclusion of infertility as an essential benefit of ACA would benefit millions of Americans living with infertility without mandated coverage.


We invite all of our members and supporters, both professional and household, to send their comments and requests for infertility inclusion to the Department of Health & Human Services by close of business this Tuesday.


An email that only takes 15 minutes to write could have tremendous impact on the future of Americans' access to infertility treatment coverage, and ultimately, on the future of American families. Do you part today by sending your emails to [email protected].


Tell Secretary Sebelius infertility matters.


For more information, please visit RESOLVE National's website for complete information regarding infertility, essential benefits, and the Affordable Care Act.

Primary Infertility Groups

Our general infertility discussion groups are open forums and provide you with the opportunity to come together and meet others who are facing similar challenges, in a relaxed and confidential setting. Topics of discussion may include current treatment, dealing with friends and family, and coping strategies. Each of these discussion groups is facilitated by a volunteer peer leader. The groups are ongoing and meet once a month on a continuing basis in a variety of locations. These groups are open to women and men, individuals and couples, who do not have children by birth.
