Are fertility treatments covered by Social Security?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/10/2021

Yes, but it is necessary that the couple meets a series of requirements to be able to access them, since the waiting lists in public hospitals are very long and time is a very important factor in terms of the success of the treatments.

In general, a woman must be under 40 years of age to undergo assisted reproduction treatment and not have had any previous children with her current partner.

Although it depends on each Autonomous Community and each center, Social Security usually covers a maximum of 4 cycles of AI and 3 cycles of IVF.
