ARC Fertility Champions Employee Reproductive Benefits for Pride 2023

SARATOGA, Calif. , June 01 /Businesswire/ - ARC Fertility, a pioneer in innovative fertility treatment options, urges employers to honor Pride 2023 by ensuring all team members have equal access to family forming healthcare benefits. The LGBTQIA+ community has won many victories, but their struggle for reproductive rights is not over, and business leaders can do their part by ensuring equality and equity when it comes to benefits. Employers will only gain by offering the best fertility care for all employees regardless of gender, orientation, or background, attracting and retaining the diverse workforces that thrive in today’s market.

“Pride is about more than just switching to rainbow logos for a month and declaring ‘love is love,’” says Dr. G. David Adamson, a fertility medicine innovator and the founder and CEO of ARC. “Employers have an opportunity to do real good for the LGBTQIA+ community by offering all employees equal access to reproductive healthcare. We must stand with our friends and loved ones and ensure their right to build the families they deserve with comprehensive and compassionate fertility benefits.”

LGBTQIA+ folks are having trouble receiving the same quality and breadth of reproductive benefits as other patients. The IVF and surrogacy treatments necessary for LGBTQIA+ families to grow can be expensive, and many governments and medical insurers do not provide funding for LGBTQIA+ family forming. Those without workplace coverage must either go into serious debt or give up their desire for children. Employers should step up and offer all their workers the same access to reproductive benefits. Those who do will be rewarded with stronger, more diverse teams.

“The fight for LGBTQIA+ inclusion continues to be an inspiration,” Adamson says. “As business and healthcare leaders, we must look honestly at the ongoing need for improvement, extend equal rights and benefits to all our employees, and keep working to make discrimination a thing of the past.”
