The Maryland Insurance Article Section 15-810, “Benefits for In Vitro Fertilization,” requires health and hospital insurance policies issued within the state that provide pregnancy benefits to also cover the cost of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Effective January 1, 2021, Maryland’s Mandated Benefits no longer has a marriage requirement for patients to receive benefits for IVF treatment. There is a limit of three IVF attempts per live birth; not to exceed a maximum lifetime benefit of $100,000.
For contracts that follow the Maryland mandate, benefits are provided when all of the following criteria are met:
- The patient must be a policyholder or subscriber, or a covered spouse of the policyholder or subscriber.
- The patient is unable to get pregnant through less-expensive covered treatments.
- For patients whose spouse is of the opposite sex, the patient and her spouse must have at least a 1-year history of involuntary infertility or infertility must be associated with one or more of the following conditions
- Fetal exposure to diethylstilbestrol, also known as DES
- Blocked or surgically removed Fallopian tubes
- Abnormal male factors, including oligospermia, contributing to the infertility
- For patients whose spouse is of the opposite sex, the patient’s eggs must be fertilized with the patient’s spouse’s sperm.
- For patients whose spouse is of the same sex, there must be three attempts of artificial insemination over the course of 1 year failing to result in pregnancy.
- IVF must be performed at a facility that conforms to the standards set by the American Fertility Society and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
- Regulations that took effect in 1994 exempt businesses with 50 or fewer employees from having to provide IVF coverage. [Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 31.11.06.06 (B) (11).]
- Religious organizations offering health benefits to their employees may request that carriers exclude IVF benefits; there must be bona fide religious beliefs and practices that prohibit IVF.

“I just wanted to thank you for everything. I felt that you were committed to our success and I did not feel like a number among many patients in such a big practice. Thanks for being there for us.”
“We can’t thank you enough for the “miracle” you have given us! We are so glad we came to see you a year ago and that you encouraged me to move on and try one more time. I guess I never thought with our odds that it would ever happen for us…and I guess I thought wrong and we owe it all to you!!”
“We want to express to you our deepest gratitude for the outstanding service and professional care we received from you and your staff during our IVF cycles. While there are no guarantees in life, the medical expertise, nursing care and compassion we received made all the difference in our success. Regardless of what the outcome might have been we are impressed and grateful for the quality of service SGF have to offer.”
“We can not take for granted how fortunate we are to have conceived. As complex and overwhelming as the IVF treatment seemed sometimes, we are the more convinced she is a miracle. We are in awe of our daughter and all the care it took to have her with us. “Thank you”, just doesn’t seem like enough to say to express our gratitude. But, THANK YOU!!!!”
Effective January 1, 2021, Maryland’s infertility insurance law no longer has a marriage requirement, and the 2-year “waiting” period has been reduced to 1 year of unprotected sexual intercourse or three attempts of artificial insemination in the course of a year.
