ASHLEY, ND – A nurse practitioner in Ashley is making waves across the state as an advocate for infertility.
Tara Brandner had her own struggle with infertility until her son was born in 2018. She says she knew she had to make a change once she realized Insurance does not recognize infertility as a medical diagnosis and had to pay all treatment costs out of pocket.
Brandner took her concerns to the legislature and created a bill that would mandate insurance to cover infertility treatment costs.
Her bill didn’t pass, but Brandner says so much good came from her call to action.
