- The Family Act covers the out-of-pocket costs associated with in vitro fertilization (IVF) including diagnostic tests, laboratory charges, professional charges, and medications for IVF.
- The Family Act covers the out-of-pocket costs of fertility preservation procedures if the man or woman is diagnosed with cancer and the cancer treatment or disease itself may result in infertility.
- The Family Act has a cost sharing provision allowing 50% of all applicable medical expenses to be covered up to a lifetime maximum of $13,360. You would need to have out-of-pocket costs totaling $26,720 to claim the entire credit in your lifetime.
- If you do not owe taxes in a particular year, do not owe enough taxes to use the whole credit, or do not reach the max amount in one tax year, it carries over to the next year for a max of five years after the first year you use the credit.
- The Family Act is available to couples filing jointly with adjusted gross incomes of less than $222,520, but the credit is smaller for those earning between $182,500 and $222,520.

infertility, I ask for your support in co-sponsoring the Family Act of
2011, S 965. The Family Act creates a tax credit for the out-of-pocket
costs associated with infertility medical treatment.

Thank you for your support of S 965, the Family Act. And thank you
for helping millions of Americans build their families.
- Teenagers everywhere get pregnant because they didn’t use birth control. I did. I got a job and got married. Now I have to pay for the chance to have a baby. In the words of every teenager out there: that’s not fair.
- Seriously? Snookie is pregnant. Please support the SANE people trying to build families
- Because I shouldn’t have to take a second mortgage out on my house to have a baby
- First comes the love, then comes the marriage, then we push the debt around in the baby carriage. Please support this tax credit
- Because we have a MEDICAL PROBLEM that ordinarily would be covered by insurance, but for some ridiculous reason that I can’t understand it isn’t, so at least give us the freaking tax credit
- Because I could beat you in a race
- Because I don’t want to have to pay for depression meds on top of treatment
- Because I’m cool people
- Because IVF costs as much as a CAR. (At least when you buy a car, you know you get to take it home)
often astronomical. Please help support our fight to build our family
by lessening the financial burden.
