What To Know About The Illinois Family Building Act
ART is notoriously expensive. Fortunately, under the Illinois Family Building Act of 1991, women who have certain group insurance plans and HMOs can receive coverage for a spectrum of fertility treatments. Women who find themselves unable to carry a pregnancy to full term or unable to conceive after having unprotected sex for one year may qualify.
Unfortunately, many insurance providers deny coverage to women who qualify for it. Our lawyers can help you understand whether you qualify for coverage under the Family Building Act and, if so, how much. If your insurer has not offered the coverage promised in your policy and by the law, we will aggressively work to get the coverage you need.
