Assumption of Costs of Artificial Insemination
Since the establishment of the so-called IVF Fund to finance in-vitro fertilisation in 2002, couples desiring children in Austria now have the possibility of financial support. The costs of artificial insemination can thus be partially absorbed, if treatments using specific methods of in-vitro fertilisation are medically necessary to fulfil a couple's desire to have children. Below, you will find more information about the conditions under which such support is possible.
In general, it should be clarified ahead of fertility treatment which costs may possibly be borne.
- Is it possible to take advantage of the IVF Fund for support?
- Will you potentially require any such services that can only be used for private payers?
- What needs to be considered when paying via German insurance companies in Austria?
Assumption of Costs by the IVF Fund
70% of the costs for treatment and medications can be financed by the IVF Fund – this is valid for four attempts at fertility treatment. The couple desiring children must therefore pay an own contribution of 30%. The so-called IVF Fund Act regulates the circumstances under which treatment costs are borne by the Fund and where affected couples can turn to in order to apply for the costs to be assumed.

If the costs are not able to be covered by the Fund or your health insurance, then you yourself will have to pay the costs of the treatment. Learn more about being a private payer under Costs of Artificial Insemination.
