A number of employers offer counseling resources for employees who are struggling with fertility issues.
Facebook and Cisco are among the employers that offer genetic testing as part of their fertility benefits package.
Fertility medications are the second most commonly offered type of fertility benefit. Earlier this year, MassMutual added fertility benefits for its 7,500 full-time and part-time employees, which includes medications. The life insurance company now provides more medical and prescription-drug coverage for fertility, as well as personalized support through partnerships with fertility companies Ovia Health and Progyny.
In vitro fertilization treatments are the most common type of fertility benefits offered by employers. Tech companies, startups and other progressive employers are leading the way in this area. Facebook, for instance, provides employees up to four IVF cycles, including genetic testing, with no preapproval required.
One such company offering generous packages is Progeny. Their Smart Cycle design allows you to choose a treatment that best suits your needs.
