Aetna Agrees to Cover Fertility Treatments for Same-Sex Couples

[Emma] Goidel, who became pregnant with her second child after six cycles of artificial insemination, and one unsuccessful attempt at in vitro fertilization, told AP she was “thrilled” that Aetna would be amending its policy, and expects to be reimbursed under the settlement.

“You never know when you start trying to conceive and you have to do it at the doctor, how long it’s going to take and how much it’s going to cost,” she said of the price tag associated with the treatments.
