The IVF Fund and the Costs of Fertility Treatment
In addition to the many questions regarding the various treatments available as part of fertility therapy that arise for most couples wanting to have a baby, the majority of them are also, naturally, intensely concerned with the costs of the IVF treatment. How much does a fertility treatment cost exactly? Can costs be co-financed and, if so, by whom and by how much?
The IVF Fund
The costs of artificial insemination (in-vitro fertilisation, IVF) are borne to a large extent by the IVF Fund. If certain conditions are met, this IVF Fund bears 70% of the costs of treatment and medication.
The remaining 30% of the costs (including medication) has to be covered by the couple itself. In order to benefit from the support of the IVF Fund, certain conditions must be met with regard to one's grounds for the request, age or even health insurance. You will find out in detail what exactly these indicators are under IVF Fund.
Prices for Self-Payers
Couples who do not get any support from the IVF Fund are so-called self-payers/private payers and must cover 100% of the costs of the treatment and medication themselves. For these couples, the issue of cost is therefore particularly important. Find out here what costs you will have to cover and when under Costs of Artificial Insemination.
German Health Insurance Funds
Couples wanting to have a child who are insured in Germany may in some circumstances wish to undergo a fertility treatment at one of our Austrian fertility centres. Before starting treatment, it is imperative that you check with your insurer whether your health insurance in Germany will also support you for a fertility treatment in Austria. More information on this subject can be found under Paying via German insurance companies.
