Does insurance cover artificial insemination for lesbian couples?

By Sara Salgado B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 02/08/2017

Insurance coverage for lesbian artificial insemination is offered in some countries. As mentioned earlier, the UK is one of the countries where this option is possible. As for the USA, some insurance policies do cover fertility treatments.

In Spain, however, medical justification is required: in this case, a diagnosis for male infertility. Given the absence of a male partner, the Public Health does not cover IUI with donor sperm for lesbian couples.
