This automatically sends your representatives a fax and/or email - let's take action!

Family Building Act of 2007 - Amends the Public Health Service Act and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to require a group health plan that provides coverage for obstetrical services to include coverage for non-experimental treatment of infertility that is deemed appropriate by a participant or beneficiary and the treating physician. Requires coverage for assisted reproductive technology only if certain conditions are met. Prohibits a group health plan from taking specified actions to avoid the requirements of this Act.

Applies such requirements to health insurance coverage offered in the individual market and coverage offered through Federal Employees Health Benefit (FEHB) plans and Department of Defense health care plans."

Thanks riogirl-I sure made my opinion count.Although I will be forever grateful for my son, I think that it's CRAZY that DH and I spent our life savings to have him. You would figure-I'm a nurse-that my employer would have great health insurance-No such luck!!!
