Family Building program

For many the adoption, fertility, and surrogacy process can be complex and stressful. The benefits included within our Family Building program can help relieve some of these concerns.

Providing family building benefits can also further your organization’s DE&I (diversity, equity, and inclusion) initiatives. This can help you attract and retain top talent.

Our Family Building program includes the following coverage:

Fertility services, fertility drugs, and surrogacy medical expenses

We know fertility treatments, fertility drugs, and surrogacy-related medical expenses can be costly. This benefit is here to help make the journey more affordable for plan members.

This benefit will repay the plan member for eligible expenses which include physician and lab services, genetic testing. It also covers medical expenses for surrogates that the plan member may incur on behalf of their surrogate, such as lab services, testing and procedures and more.

Our fertility drug coverage can also help to alleviate some of the costs associated with a plan member's fertility journey. Most fertility drugs are part of your Extended Health Care (EHC) offering and may already be included in the list of eligible drugs.
