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. Rep. Jeff Miller, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, said he’s working toward a compromise that “meets the needs of this special group of severely injured veterans while being sensitive to concerns surrounding IVF procedures.”
