Reproductive Treatment for Certain Disabled Veterans, HR 2257

Updated: May 16, 2016

Introduced on May 13, 2015 by Chairman Jeff Miller, HR 2257 will lift the ban on offering in vitro fertilization (IVF) by the Veterans Administration to certain disabled veterans with a service-related injury that has caused infertility. The bill extends the treatment to spouses if needed. IVF coverage is already being offered to active duty wounded service members therefore this bill fixes the inequity in care when those service-members move to the VA health system.
