The Fertility Care Report Card: Where you Live Can Make a Difference

The state you live in can determine the quality of your fertility care.

Infertility is a difficult journey given its many treatment obstacles: cost, length of time, physical & emotional drain, and more. In the United States, an additional obstacle may be your state: the state you live in can determine the quality of fertility care you receive and the alternative methods available to you.

RESOLVE recently released it annual “Fertility Scorecard” - a map that grades states based on access to fertility resources. According to the map, the best states for those seeking fertility treatments are: Illinois, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. The worst states (those receiving an F grade) are Mississippi, Wyoming, and Alaska.

Each state was evaluated based on the following fertility care related factors:

- Number of fertility specialists (doctors) in the state

- Number of women in the state who have experienced physical difficulty in becoming or remaining pregnant (to live birth)

- Whether or not the state law requires insurance coverage for fertility treatments (insurance mandate)

- Number of peer-led RESOLVE support groups
