Imaginary Insurance Coverage

J got a new job- YEAH! This means a bigger paycheck for us, which is never a bad thing. Ever since I have known that this was coming, I've been DYING to get my paws on the insurance card. Dying to call about the coverage. And a little bit-in my head- I had already decided that we were going to go from being 100% out of pocket for all our IVF expenses, to 100% covered and in the clear. I was doing a mental happy dance about it already.

I finally got the ID and group number- called to the customer service number- and then they told me there is no coverage for infertility or ART procedures. :::insert sound of balloon deflation here:::

So I know I shouldn't be THAT disappointed. But my imaginary infertility coverage was awesome. And now it's gone again. And we're back to saving every penny so we can try to have a baby.


  1. I'm sorry Kathy :(

    I can't believe J has another new job, how many is that in the past 2 years? haha

  2. Congrats to J! And woohoo for bigger paychecks! Sorry you lost your imaginary coverage.

  3. So happy J got a new job!!! That is a huge bummer about the fertility treatments. But man a bigger paycheck means easier saving!!

  4. Congrats on the new job! My J just went through contract negotiations and they are getting new med insurance starting Jan 1. I'm doing the same thing as you. Imagining that they will cover infertility so we can try again.
