Cover All IVF (infertility) Treatments Through Union Local 1049 Insurance (currently taking signatures from local 1049 worker or significant others only at this time)

My husband currently works for Local -1049. They have a privately owned insurance that the board of trustees vote on what the insurance will cover. In Jan 2020 NY state passed a law stating all state funded insurance are required to cover all infertility treatments, IUI (artificially insemination ) and IVF (In-vitro) treatments. Because the union Local 1049 is a privately owned insurance they do not have to obey by the law and are choosing NOT to offer coverage for IVF treatments.
I am asking for everyone to consider the importance for women to have this option to create life.
I can tell you from struggling  with infertility and going through 3 years of infertility treatments I would have never been able to become a mom. I would never have been able to have my amazing daughter. And I can also tell you that most of the couples I see in the fertility center are YOUNG. For some reason now a days infertility is effecting more and more women and men. And without the option to have all treatments available the possibility of starting a family would never happen for many people.
Why should anyone not be able to have all options for a medical condition?? If someone had a heart problem they would be offered coverage for multiple treatments. Infertility is a medical condition that requires different treatment options.
Please if you are a male or female this effect you. Men can struggle from infertility issues as well. And if you have a significant other or spouse that is or is not going through this struggle your signature can make a change!
Please sign to help me ask the local 1049 board of trustees to reconsider the importance of having the option of IVF coverage! As they said "Children are our future".
