In this episode, we speak with Alise Powell from the ASRM Office of Public Affairs about the recent state policy changes for infertility treatments and gestational carrier contracts. Alise shares the news that Colorado has enacted a new mandate providing insurance coverage for infertility treatments, including IVF and fertility preservation, effective from 2022. She also highlights the role ASRM played in getting this historic legislation enacted. In addition, Alise discusses the Child Parent Security Act passed in New York, which has overturned the state's longtime ban on gestational carrier contracts. Prior to this law, surrogacy arrangements were not legally binding. Alise explains the implications of these policy changes and their significance in the current COVID-19 pandemic.
