Infertility services

Infertility is when a person is unable to achieve pregnancy after:

  • One year of egg-sperm contact efforts when the person attempting conception is under age 35, OR
  • Six months of egg-sperm contact efforts when the person attempting conception is age 35 or older

Egg-sperm contact can be from sexual intercourse or artificial insemination (intrauterine, intracervical or intravaginal). Infertility may also be caused by a problem with the reproductive tract that makes egg-sperm contact ineffective. This explanation applies to all individuals regardless of sexual orientation or the presence/availability of a reproductive partner.

To learn more about infertility coverage, limitations and exclusions, please refer to the Official Plan Brochure.

Contraceptive coverage

Under The Affordable Care Act, coverage of certain preventive services, including contraceptives, must be provided at no cost. RCBP covers at least one form of contraception from each category as listed in the ACA/HRSA site. For a list of no cost contraceptives, download the list or go to Section 5(a), 5(b) and 5(f) of your official plan brochure for additional details. If your prescriber believes that a non-formulary contraceptive is medically necessary for you, your prescriber may request an exception. Please ask your provider to complete the Contraception Exception Form found in the Official Plan Documents to determine if the product is medically necessary. More information is available within the Contraception Exception Process.
