Colorado Building Families Act 2022
We are very excited to announce that the Colorado Building Families Act (HB20-1158) sponsored by Representative Kerry Tipper, is set to go into effect on January 1, 2023, and will now require health benefits issued or renewed in Colorado to cover the diagnosis of infertility, treatment for infertility, and fertility preservation services.
What is included?
The CBFA will cover up to three (3) IVF retrievals and unlimited embryo transfers. This bill is inclusive in expanding coverage to those who do not necessarily meet infertility criteria including single individuals and same-sex couples.
Speak to your employer and human resources department to see if your company will fall under the new infertility insurance mandate in Colorado. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- If your company has 100 or more employees, it may be required to follow the new infertility mandate. Unfortunately, self-insured companies are not bound to follow the Colorado Building Families Act (HB20-1158) as we currently understand the bill.
- If your insurance plan is an out-of-state plan, you likely will not be able to take advantage of the new mandate. We encourage you to speak with your employer for more specific information.
