A coalition of groups that is pushing for private health plans to cover fertility procedures has expanded and plans to commit “significant resources” to get the legislation approved.

The Coalition to Help Families Struggling with Infertility is pushing for the passage of the Fair Access to Fertility Treatment Act, is meant to expand coverage for procedures like in-vitro fertilization and fertility preservation, which benefits cancer patients.

The groups plan to spend on a media campaign that includes digital, TV and radio as well as grassroots mobilization.

The coalition includes RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, Alliance for Fertility Preservation, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Coalition for Women’s Cancers and other New York-based patient advocacy groups. Lobbying will also be done by Dickinson, Avella & Vidal and Tress Capitol Advisors.

The measure has been proposed in previous legislative sessions and has won support in the Democratic-led Assembly. Advocates are hopeful that with Democratic control of the state Senate, the bill can be acted on this year.
