Roughly 11 percent of reproductive-age women in the United States have difficulty getting or staying pregnant, yet access to support and insurance coverage for fertility treatment varies wildly according to where they live. A map released Monday highlights the disparities, ranking states' so-called "fertility friendliness" -- a measure of the insurance "climate" and the number of fertility specialists and support groups, relative to the number of women with infertility living there. Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey were the only states to receive an "A" grade, according rankings compiled by Resolve: The National Infertility Association, in partnership with EMD Serono Inc., a biotech drug company that makes fertility treatments. Alaska, New Hampshire and Wyoming all received an "F." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/21/infertility-insurance-by-state_n_5175082.html
