Conneticut requires coverage of infertility aid

STRATFORD, Conn. A new law to take effect Saturday, will make Connecticut the 15th state to mandate insurance coverage for infertility treatments. But it will become the only state to deny the benefit to women 40-and-over, and women's advocates are concerned that more states will follow suit.  . . . Most states that mandate infertility coverage don't have age limits, although New York cuts off coverage at 44 and New Jersey ends coverage at 46. According to the Centers for Disease Control, success rates for women who use assisted reproductive technology decline steadily once they reach their mid-30s.
