Have you found health insurance administrators to be really insensitive about fertility issues?

In brief: 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.
