ASRM Supports AB 2029
May 01, 2022
Origin: ASRM Announcement
AB 2029 protects against exclusionary and discriminatory insurance coverage for infertility, providing equitable access to the LGBTQ+ community and unpartnered individuals. It also helps cancer patients and others with medically-induced infertility complete their family building after preserving their eggs and sperm, which was made possible by SB 600 in 2019.
Reproduction is a basic human need and access to care should be a basic human right.
AB 2029 was introduced by Assembly Member Wicks and has broad support and sponsors from the California Department of Insurance Commissioner’s Office, RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, Alliance for Fertility Preservation, Equality California, and American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
