Insurance companies provided Massachusetts in the filing address in 103 of the
173 instances where the subject address was listed as New York. For these same 173
instances, 37 filers noted New York as their filing location. Filers located in Califor-

(CalSIM) model is designed to estimate the impact of
various elements of the ACA on employer decisions to
offer insurance coverage and individual decisions to
obtain coverage in California.

Another critical barrier to access is discrimination by state laws or fertility clinics. Coverage in
five of the states with insurance mandates
is only available to married couples, and four of
mandate use of the husband’s sperm, eliminating the possibility of donor sperm.
Some fertility clinics only offer services to married couples as well. The American Society for
Reproductive Medicine reports that fertility clinics vary in their willingness to treat single
women, single men, lesbian couples, and gay male couples.
