The new coverage takes effect on Jan. 1, 2015, and applies to most U-M medical plans.
The expansion will provide IVF coverage for women through age 42 who have been diagnosed with infertility. Individuals contribute a co-insurance of 20 percent of the cost, and the remainder is covered by the plan up to a $20,000 lifetime maximum.
Everyone who is eligible for IVF will have access to a clinical provider in the U-M Health System, where procedures must take place. IVF services at non-UMHS providers will not be covered.
