Abstract

The objective of our study was to examine the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of patients accessing infertility services in a state (Massachusetts) with mandated and comprehensive insurance coverage for such services. Even in a state with such insurance coverage, disparities in access to infertility services exist, with the majority of individuals accessing those services being Caucasian, highly educated, and wealthy.
