Is IVF covered by my Health insurance plan?

When does a cycle or attempt start?
A fresh IVF cycle or attempt starts when the woman begins her medication for egg stimulation. At any point from here on forward, if no live birth is achieved, this would be considered an unsuccessful cycle or attempt.
A frozen IVF cycle or attempt starts when the embryos are thawed and transferred to the woman. At any point from here on forward, if no live birth is achieved, this would be considered an unsuccessful cycle or attempt.
