Support S. 3148A

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am your constituent and am writing to ask for your support of a bill that will help the many New Yorkers who are struggling to build their families in our state.

One in 8 couples in the U.S. has trouble getting pregnant or sustaining a pregnancy -- that's more than 441,000 New Yorkers. Infertility affects men and women equally and does not discriminate.

The Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act (FAFTA), S.3148A, updates New York's insurance law to include coverage for in vitro fertilization (IVF). New York specifically exempts IVF coverage, even though it is now considered to be the standard of care to treat the disease of infertility. The bill also requires insurance coverage for fertility preservation when a medical treatment for cancer, for example, can cause infertility. Please work with your colleagues to put S.3148A on the Insurance Committee agenda and speak with leadership to pass this legislation.

I hope you will support this pro-family bill on behalf of the 1 in 8 couples in your district who are struggling to build their families.

Thank you.
