Costs of IVF treatment will reportedly be covered by the state as from next year, Health Minister Chris Fearne announced today.
Speaking in Parliament, Fearne said that the government currently covers around €15,000 of the treatment costs done at Mater Dei. However, couples were still forced to pay over €3,000 in medicines for the treatment.
IVF services were first introduced in October 2015 after years-long delays. This news means that parents will not need to fork out anything when undergoing IVF treatment.
