    ACOG is excited to share that the Access to Infertility Treatment and Care Act has been introduced in the US Congress by Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).

    This bill requires more health insurers to provide coverage for infertility treatment, as well as fertility preservation services for individuals who undergo medically necessary procedures that may cause infertility, such as chemotherapy. Further, the bill requires most health insurance plans, as well as plans offered by the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, Medicaid, TRICARE, ERISA, and the VA, to provide coverage for treatment of infertility without raising insurance or copayment costs.

    Congress has a unique opportunity to support families struggling with infertility, and needs to hear from you now about the positive impact this legislation would have for your patients. Tell your Senators and Representative to cosponsor the Access to Infertility Treatment and Care Act today!

    On August 21, the FDA approved the first RSV vaccine for use in pregnant individuals between 32 and 36 weeks to protect newborns and infants against severe RSV disease in the first six months after birth. ACOG is supportive of this RSV vaccine being approved and available to pregnant individuals and looks forward to CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice’s recommendations related to the implementation of this vaccine. Implementation considerations to be addressed  include  co-administration with other maternal immunizations, the relationship between the maternal RSV vaccine and the recently recommended monoclonal antibody for infants, and whether all patients will have access to the vaccine. ACOG guidance related to maternal RSV vaccination will be forthcoming following careful review of FDA indications and CDC recommendations.

    Thank you to everyone who joined this week to learn more about the two pieces of stillbirth prevention legislation that have been introduced in the 118th Congress. We are grateful for the community of supporters and advocates who are helping us build a coalition of voices to raise the volume on the U.S. stillbirth crisis!  

    In case you missed the meeting, we invite you to watch the recording to learn more about the Maternal and Child Health Stillbirth Prevention Act and the SHINE for Autumn Act. Feel free to share this recording with other advocates who may have questions!

    Maternal and Child Health Stillbirth Prevention Act

    This bipartisan, bicameral piece of legislation would add stillbirth and stillbirth prevention to Title V of the Social Security Act. This bill recognizes that stillbirth (defined as the loss of a baby at 20 weeks or greater during pregnancy), and the disparity in those impacted by stillbirth, requires further research, support, and prevention programming. The Stillbirth Prevention Act also calls for evidence-based programs and activities and outcome research to reduce the incidence of stillbirth in the United States.
