Family Act Update: Congresswoman Jenkins Visits Midwest Reproductive Center

Dr. Dan Gehlbach and the Midwest Reproductive Center staff welcomed Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins to its fertility center

Dr. Dan Gehlbach and the Midwest Reproductive Center staff welcomed Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins to its fertility center to continue the conversation about providing tax relief for the 7.3 million couples and individuals undergoing infertility treatment.

Family Act Provides Infertility Tax Relief

Dr. Gehlbach supported the Family Act of 2011 since its inception, and was disappointed when the bill died in Congress this past year. 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 convened in January, so the push to gain support for The Family Act and infertility coverage continues. The National Infertility Association (RESOLVE) spearheads a letter-writing campaign, and there is a link directly from the Midwest Reproductive Center website to your Representative.

Congresswoman Jenkins visited with Dr. Gehlbach in the Olathe fertility center, interacting with men and women on the front lines of infertility. Several couples shared their stories about how an infertility tax credit would help ease their financial strain.
