Decision Maker Response

Richard Gottfried’s response

Richard Gottfried
State Representative

Oct 18, 2017 — Dear Friend:

Thank you very much for signing a change.org petition to let me know of your support for Assembly bill A.2646/S. 3148 (Simotas/Savino), which would require insurers to provide coverage for in-vitro fertilization and other fertility treatments.

I agree with you on this important issue. I voted for the bill when it passed the Assembly in June by a vote of 120 to 24. Unfortunately, the State Senate did not act on it during the 2017 session. I will continue to support the bill in the 2018 session.

I appreciate your consideration in writing to me.

Very truly yours,
Richard N. Gottfried
Chair
Assembly Committee on Health
