Surrogate Mothers win Insurance Battle!

Surrogate Mothers Win Insurance Battle In Court
Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruled Unanimously Friday

Text SizeAAAMADISON, Wis. -- Surrogate mothers have won a fight over insurance benefits in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The court unanimously ruled Friday that insurance companies may not refuse to pay maternity costs to surrogate mothers.

The case involves a dispute between MercyCare HMO of Janesville and two surrogate mothers denied coverage by the company during their pregnancies.

The company had a policy of covering pregnant women, but excluding surrogate mothers who act as "gestational carriers" for others' babies.

The Supreme Court said insurance companies may not make routine maternity services unavailable to surrogate mothers based solely on the reasons or methods of becoming pregnant.

The decision overturns a lower court's ruling in favor of the HMO.

To be completely honest with you, IVF success rates aren't good. Although I can tell you that we did fall pregnant in our first cycle, this isn't the case for the majority of couples. The older you are, the less likely it is that you will conceive. With regard to women under thirty five the average rate of success is just under 30%. This goes straight down from there to just under one percent for women over 44 years of age. These are harsh statistics. Effectively, what this means is that more than sixty-six per cent of you will not be successful and in the scenario in which you don't have any more embryos you will be requested to withstand the expense and stress of another hormone injection cycle.
