Dr. Gehlbach and the entire Midwest Reproductive Center staff support the Family Act of 2011.
The legislation wraps around current benefits for adoption, and would create a tax credit of up to $13,360 for out-of-pocket costs for infertility treatments such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and fertility preservation.
The 113th Congress is currently in session, and the push to gain support for The Family Act and infertility coverage continues. The National Infertility Association (RESOLVE) spearheads a letter-writing campaign, or click here to contact Congressman Kevin Yoder about the Family Act.
Dr. Gehlbach recently traveled to Congressman Yoder’s Overland Park office on behalf of men and women on the front lines of infertility.
We encourage you to contact your representative, and interact with the Midwest Reproductive Center Facebook page to share your story about affording infertility treatment, and how the cost of IVF impacts you.
Thank you to Congressman Yoder for listening, and taking our concerns back to Washington D.C.
