Wounded Vets IVFThe numbers of veterans injured while serving and who also are in need of IVF treatments are rising. But once a soldier is discharged or retires, his or her access to those IVF treatments is not covered by the VA health plans. “I served my country. I was injured,” Matt (Keil) says. “All my medical supplies are paid for, but the one thing they won’t facilitate [by] paying — that I lost the ability to have — was a family.” Legislation to improve this coverage for injured vets comes up frequently but has yet to be passed.
