Generally, yes: Fertility coverage by insurers represents a potentially large expenditure if not limited in some way. Since infertility is not a disease but more related to a life choice, many in an insurance plan might not want to take on the added expense caused by covering this condition. Many purchasers of health insurance look at fertility as a couple's responsibility.
