We are asking that all of our patients contact their U.S. Senators and Congressional Representatives and ask them to support The Family Act, which will create a tax credit for the out-of-pocket costs associated with IVF treatment. We expect the bill will be voted on before the end of the year.

National call-in days are November 27-29. You can download a phone script here.

The Family Act of 2011 (S 965/HR 3522) will potentially help thousands of people seek medical treatment that otherwise would be out of reach for them by creating a tax credit for the out-of-pocket costs associated with IVF and fertility preservation after a cancer diagnosis.

The IVF tax credit will be available to patients with a household income of less than $220,000, and will provide taxpayers the ability to receive a credit of up to 50% of their out-of-pocket costs up to a lifetime max of $13,360.
