In 2010, 12.1% of US couples reported problems becoming pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term,1 and many required in vitro fertilization (IVF) to conceive. However, IVF is expensive2 and typically not covered by insurance.3 Some employers now offer insurance plans with IVF coverage, but the association of employer-sponsored coverage with use of IVF has not been studied.
