  • [01] Insurance coverage for medically assisted reproduction signed

    The government on Tuesday ratified a presidential decree instituting insurance coverage for medically assisted reproduction, such as artificial insemination and invitro fertilisation.

    Social insurance funds will cover the cost for preliminary physical exams, drugs, clinical and lab tests, birth and pregnancy benefits, according to the new regime.

    According to the presidential decree, public hospitals will take over the medically assisted reproduction cost for the financially weaker couples and the uninsured.
