How To Determine If The State Mandate Affects You

 

On June 30, 2018, Delaware became the 16th state to require commercial health plans sold in the state to include benefits for fertility care and the 4th state to require that these plans also include benefits for fertility preservation.

Employee-Sponsored Plans

In order to determine if the law impacts your employer-sponsored health insurance plan, confirm that your employer meets the following requirements:

  • Employer is based in Delaware;
  • Has 50 or more employees; and
  • Does NOT self-insure

Once you have determined whether or not your employer meets these requirements, please note there are some variables. One of the largest variables is that until you receive your annual enrollment information on your health insurance plan for the next enrollment year, it cannot be determined what your out-of-pocket cost will be for treatment should you qualify for coverage. This is because your deductible and your out-of-pocket max are determined at this time by your employer. While the law ensures that it is standard for any type of treatment (all medical treatment including IVF, and that IVF cannot be subject to a different deductible i.e. carve-outs) the actual amount will still be given to you by your employer when they inform you about your insurance plan(s).

If you believe your employer meets these requirements, and you are being told fertility benefits are not covered, please email rad-billing@radfertility.com and we will connect you with a fertility insurance advocate to help.

Marketplace Plans

All individual health insurance plans sold on the Delaware Health Insurance Marketplace include fertility care and preservation coverage defined by Delaware’s Fertility Care and Preservation Law. Open enrollment for 2020 coverage has ended but you may still be able to enroll or change plans if you qualify.

"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."

"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."

"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."

"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"

"The day I met Dr. Neithardt I knew she was the perfect doctor for me. Dr. Neithardt was so compassionate every step of the way. She held my hand, she hugged away tears, and continued to give me hope. There are not enough 'thank you's' in the world for Dr. Neithardt and the whole RADfertility team who will forever have a special place in my heart."

★★★★★

"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."
