The Kinderwunsch Institut Dr. Loimer has concluded a contract with the Austrian IVF Fund with effect from March 1st, 2021. This means that we can now offer eligible couples IVF treatments at the discounted fund rates.
WHO IS ENTITLED TO PAYMENT THROUGH THE IVF FUND?
At the start of infertility treatment the woman must not have exceeded her 40th birthday and the partner must not have exceeded his/her 50th birthday . If the age limit is exceeded during treatment, the IVF Fund will cover the costs of ongoing treatment. However, support for further treatment by the IVF Fund is then no longer possible.
There must be proof of benefit responsibility for both partners. This can be issued by the statutory health insurance, a health care institution or by a private Austrian or foreign health insurance
WHAT TREATMENTS ARE FINANCED?
The IVF Fund covers 70 per cent of the costs for IVF, ICSI and cryo-embryo transfers (when more embryos are fertilised and cryopreserved for a later attempt) as well as from MESA and TESE. The costs of providing donor sperm or donated eggs are not co-financed by the IVF Fund. The performance of homologous and heterologous inseminations is also not financially supported.
All ultrasound examinations and stimulation medication are included in the fund tariffs. The Austrian IVF Fund is handled by the fertility institute that has concluded contracts with the IVF Fund. The couple wishing to have a child is charged only the deductible of 30 percent
HOW MANY TRIALS ARE SUPPORTED BY THE FUND?
The IVF Fund will make the co-payment for four attempts per couple. An attempt is considered to be a complete treatment cycle from the time of actual initiation of treatment by the IVF centre until proof of pregnancy has occurred or has not occurred
A treatment cycle discontinued for lack of success shall be considered an attempt. However, if an attempt has to be discontinued for medical reasons after egg retrieval and cryopreserved embryos obtained in the process have to be used in the subsequent treatment cycle, this shall only count as one attempt. Otherwise, each treatment cycle in which cryopreserved embryos stored from a previous completed attempt are used shall be counted as a separate attempt.
The reimbursement of costs for more than four attempts of artificial insemination requires that at least one pregnancy could be successfully induced by methods of IVF. If one of the four attempts is successfully completed and a pregnancy is achieved, the full entitlement to cost coverage for a further four attempts shall be revived from this attempt onwards.
The fund tariffs are graduated according to the age of the patient. For example, the rates are slightly higher from the age of 35, as statistically, these women need to be administered more stimulation drugs.
During the initial consultation and treatment planning at the Kinderwunsch Institut Dr. Loimer, you will receive a detailed estimate of costs.
