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."

Already done Rio and thanks for posting for others...

Glad your c-sec scar is not a serious situation albiet its a frustrating one. Use corticosteriod cream and you should help the itching and swelling. Good luck and when is you next transfer going to be???

HI Cocoa! Thanks for supporting the insurance coverage, I figure that even if it doesn't help me it might help others in the future. We are thinking of going for #2 at the end of the year when our baby will turn one. Crazy to go through it all again!!!

How are your twins?
