NYS restores some funding for infertility program

I’ve written before about the politics of state support for IVF programs.

Here’s an update about New York’s infertility demonstration program:

In the 2011-2012 budget, the legislature restored some of the governor’s proposed cuts to various health programs. According to this document –- the NYS Senate Enacted Budget Summary – a little over $1 million was restored to the infertility program (the line items are on page 36 of 74).

It’s 50 percent less than last year. But given the massive cuts to basic services like Medicaid and school aid  it’s shock that it’s still there at all.
