IRDAI Ponders Over Insurance Cover For Infertility Treatment

The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) is considering the request to cover infertility as a disease in health insurance policies. As reported by The Indian Express, a few days ago, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed by advocate Monica Dudani Mehtab in the Punjab and Haryana Court seeking framing of an insurance cover for infertility treatment. At that time, the Centre had written a letter to the IRDAI and four public sector insurance companies to consider it.
