More Subsidies for Infertility Treatment PromisedInfertile couples with monthly household income under W4.81 million will be able to get fertility treatment almost for free from next year (US$1=W1,155).

The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affairs on Thursday said it will subsidize artificial insemination for infertile couples earning less than 150 percent of the national average from next year, in addition to the existing assistance program for in-vitro treatment, as a means of tackling the low birthrate.


This year's national average income for a two-person household was W4.81 million per month.
The assistance will cover up to W500,000 per artificial insemination up to three times, and W1.5 million for every in-vitro procedure, also up to three times.

For couples on welfare, up to W2.7 million per in-vitro procedure will be covered. Artificial insemination normally costs W500,000 per session, and an in-vitro procedure W3 million

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
