Iatrogenic Infertility Due to Cancer Treatments: A Case for Fertility Preservation Coverage

Publication Year: 2011
Organization: Livestrong

Livestrong’s goal is to amend current cancer benefits to include coverage for all standard fertility preservation treatments when necessary medical treatments may cause iatrogenic infertility. Both the emotion-laden fairness case and positive return economics provide a strong basis for coverage consideration. This easy to implement benefit modification will remedy iatrogenic infertility as well as improve outcomes, reduce distress, enable better treatment decision-making, and increase corporate goodwill.
