The Family Act, S 881/HR 1851 creates a tax credit for the out-of-pocket costs associated with in vitro fertilization (IVF) and fertility preservation. The Family Act will cover medical procedures, prescription medications, professional charges, the transfer of embryo and other necessary costs when a taxpayer undergoes IVF. The Family Act will help thousands of people access medical treatment for infertility that otherwise might be unavailable to them due to lack of insurance coverage.

The Women Veterans and Other Health Care Improvement Act, S 131/HR 958, will improve the reproductive assistance provided by the Department of Veteran Affairs to severely wounded, ill, or injured veterans and their spouses. The bill will provide access to fertility treatments, such as IVF for seriously injured veterans and their spouses, and adoption assistance.

Although the adoption tax credit was made permanent in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” law), this new legislation will restore the refundable portion of the credit which was in place in 2010 and 2011. This legislation is critical to creating financial flexibility for families seeking to adopt. The reinstitution of the refundable adoption tax credit, through the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act of 2013 will help provide access and relief to those who would otherwise not be able to build their family through adoption.
