Contact HR: This is less a medical question as it is an insurance/benefits question. It depends on where you live, and the available carriers, and what treatments are being considered. F you have insurance, you should contact your benefits department. If you are buying for yourself you might just have to call around, or use an agent.

Depends: There are many different insurances, each with different levels/plans offered, and many with addiitonal riders that is arranged with the company. It is best to explore each option that one's company is offering (if there is a choice). Ideal insurance from a fertility perspective would include ivf coverage or a large cap.
