Some couples may need pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT), assisted hatching, or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), but these aren't usually covered by the normal IVF treatment cost.

Insurance Coverage for IVF

Insurance coverage for IVF treatment varies by country, state, and insurance programme. Reproductive therapy may or may not be covered by insurance in different countries and areas. Before you start IVF treatment, you should look at your insurance policy and talk to your insurance company about different ways to manage the costs.

Help with money and schedules for payments

Several fertility clinics offer financial aid schemes or payment plans to help make IVF treatment more accessible. With the help of these schemes, the cost of treatment can be spread out over a more extended period of time. These programmes may offer discounts, package deals, or different ways to pay for treatment. To figure out the best financial plan for your situation, you need to talk to your chosen fertility clinic about these options.

Grants and scholarships

Some groups offer grants and scholarships to qualified couples to help with the cost of IVF treatment. Most of the time, you have to fill out an application to get into these schemes, and you may have to meet certain qualifications, like being poor or having a diagnosis of infertility.


Having a clear idea of how much IVF treatment costs can help you make more informed decisions about your reproductive journey. Even though IVF is an expensive process, looking into financial aid programmes, and insurance coverage may help make the procedure more accessible and cheaper. Talk to your insurance company and the fertility centre to get the most accurate price estimate and to find out if you can get financial help.
