Support New York Families

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am your constituent and strongly urge you to support the Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act (A. 2817) by co-sponsoring this legislation and including it in the Assembly budget. This important legislation will help New Yorkers build their family when faced with infertility and help preserve their chance at family when facing cancer.



The Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act (FAFTA) updates New York's insurance law (last updated in 2002) to include coverage for in vitro fertilization (IVF) as well as fertility preservation for those diagnosed with cancer or other conditions that may cause infertility.

This pro-women and pro-family legislation is designed to ensure the best outcome for mothers and their babies. As proven in other states, IVF insurance decreases the chance of multiple births, and lowering multiple births decreases overall health care costs and results in healthier babies and healthier moms.

Did you know NY state employees already have access to IVF through their state provided health insurance? It's time to give your constituents the same access to care, especially since New York offers world-class medical care for both infertility and cancer.

Please support New York families by co-sponsoring FAFTA and tell Assembly leadership to include A. 2817 in the budget. Thank you!

Sincerely,
