Reimbursement of pharmaceuticals related to artificial insemination

From 2018, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer services and pharmaceuticals are fully financed by EHIF. Previously, the Ministry of Social Affairs paid for these pharmaceuticals and services. In addition, from 2018, you do not have to apply for reimbursement for IVF pharmaceuticals after you have purchased them.

Women up to the age of 40 (incl.) are entitled to a 100% discount on the pharmaceuticals necessary for in vitro fertilization immediately at a pharmacy when buying them. At the pharmacy, they only have to pay the prescription fee, which is 2.5 euros, and the part exceeding the maximum price of the reimbursable pharmaceutical, provided that the pharmaceutical is more expensive than the reference price listed by EHIF. Ask your doctor for more information about different pharmaceuticals and in vitro fertilization.

The pharmacy offers a 100% discount for pharmaceuticals that contain the following active ingredients:

  • follitropin alpha;
  • follitropin beta;
  • ganirelix;
  • goserelin;
  • triptorelin;
  • cetrorelix;
  • lutropin;
  • corifollitropin;
  • chorionic gonadotropin alpha.
