Ins Code-Infertility Coverage

Abstract

Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that coverage for the diagnosis and treatment of infertility shall be provided without discrimination on the basis of age, ancestry, color, disability, domestic partner status, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. Removes provisions stating that "infertility" means the inability to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse or the inability to sustain a successful pregnancy. House Committee Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that a policy, contract, or certificate may not impose any exclusions, limitations, or other restrictions on coverage of fertility medications that are different from those imposed on any other prescription medications, nor may it impose any exclusions, limitations, or other restrictions on coverage of any fertility services based on a covered individual's participation in fertility services provided by or to a third party, nor may it impose deductibles, copayments, coinsurance, benefit maximums, waiting periods, or any other limitations on coverage for the diagnosis of infertility, treatment for infertility, and standard fertility preservation services, except as provided in the Section, that are different from those imposed upon benefits for services not related to infertility. Changes the definition of "infertility" to mean a disease, condition, or status characterized by: a failure to establish a pregnancy or to carry a pregnancy to live birth after 12 months of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse if the woman is 35 years of age or younger, or after 6 months of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse if the woman is over 35 years of age; a person's inability to reproduce either as a single individual or with a partner without medical intervention; or a licensed physician's findings based on a patient's medical, sexual, and reproductive history, age, physical findings, or diagnostic testing.
