Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced The Family Act of 2011, S 965 to the U.S. Senate just 2 weeks ago. This bill will provide a tax credit to offset the high costs of some infertility treatment for those trying to have a family. There is a significant financial burden associated with infertility because of the lack of insurance coverage. This bill would help thousands of people diagnosed with infertility overcome the financial burdens of family building.
According to RESOLVE, they are now working to secure Senate co-sponsors for this legislation. This does not happen unless members of Congress hear from their constituents. A letter from you to your Senators is critical.
