What costs can you expect?
The costs for assisted reproduction can be very high and, depending on the extent, hardly affordable out of one’s own pocket. Intrauterine insemination (IUI) involves placing the partner’s sperm directly into the woman’s uterus to increase the likelihood of pregnancy. Multiple attempts are often necessary.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is far more complex. The woman’s retrieved eggs come into contact with the man’s treated sperm in the laboratory. If the fusion is successful, the fertilized egg is inserted into the woman’s uterus. The great advantage is the short distance the sperm have to travel.
In its coalition agreement in November 2021, the new German government announced that unintentionally childless women would receive better support in the future. In addition, under certain circumstances, health insurance companies will cover a proportion of the costs of your treatment. If you would like to receive more information about this, please contact our patient advisors here.

The supported treatments are limited to in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). However, it should be noted that since July 2021, both of these treatments are no longer supported by the federal government if foreign sperm donation is part of the treatment.
In the case of married couples, up to 50% of the remaining co-payment can be subsidized, after settlement with the health insurance or subsidy office. For unmarried couples, the subsidy is 25% for the first three treatment cycles. Thereafter, this increases to 50%.
At most, the following subsidies can be expected:
For the first through third treatment cycles:
IVF treatment up to 800,- € of the personal contribution and for
ICSI treatment up to 900,- € of the co-payment,
For the fourth treatment cycle:
IVF treatment up to 1.600,- € of the co-payment and in case of
ICSI treatment up to 1.800,- € of the co-payment.
Attention. Until probably the end of January 2022 there is a funding stop for assisted reproduction of the state of Lower Saxony!

What are important criteria when choosing a fertility centre?
In order to fulfil your desire to have a child, you should choose a fertility clinic that meets your specific requirements and importantly where you feel comfortable. When choosing a clinic, there are a number of aspects to consider to ensure that the therapy goes as smoothly as possible. The success of a therapy depends on various factors. Both the experience and qualifications of the medical team and the technological status of the laboratory equipment (for example, whether the clinic has a clean room laboratory) can have an impact on the success rate.
In addition to the success rate, there are other issues that can be decisive in the selection process. Good counselling on the choice of therapy, as well as personal care and the availability of the doctor can help reduce personal concerns and ensure no questions go unanswered. To instil personal confidence in the process, hearing the experiences of previous patients can also give an indication of the quality or shortcomings of a practice.
Another aspect to consider are the costs. To avoid surprises, fertility centres that maintain a high degree of price transparency are recommended. In the case of treatments with donor sperm, it is recommended that there is a cooperation between clinics and an experienced sperm bank, as they often offer a larger selection of donor profiles and have many years of experience in the field of sperm donation.
When selecting our partner clinics, we ensure that both heterosexual and homosexual couples, as well as singles are treated in the respective clinics.
