Is reciprocal IVF covered by insurance?

By Rebeca Reus BSc, MSc (embryologist).
Last Update: 08/24/2018

No, it isn't. Unfortunately, insurance providers don't cover IVF when one partner carriers the pregnancy and the other provides eggs unless it is required for medical reasons. However, diagnostic testing and doctor visits for the pregnant woman may be covered. Our advice is that you verify it with your provider, as coverage varies by provider.

The UK NHS does not currently cover reciprocal IVF treatments.
