On August 27, 2018, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner will sign in to law HB2617, which will ensure insurance covereage for oncofertility and fertility preservation patients. Illinois will join five other states that have passed similar legislation. This is a huge milestone for the field and on behalf of the Oncofertility Consortium, we congratulate the advocates, patients, and others who worked tirelessly to make sure this important bill was signed in to law. A special thanks to our own Kristin Smith and Megan Connolly who attended multiple hearings, appeared multiple times before the House and Senate, and shared their personal stories to move this important issue forward. They are outstanding advocates and representatives for the entire field and none of this would have been possible without their dedication and hardwork.
