Paying for Treatment
We understand that paying for fertility treatment can be a worry, and it can be challenging to plan for what you will need.
To keep fertility costs simple and straightforward, we package our treatment costs. This keeps our fertility treatments affordable and gives you assurance as to what is included. We provide specific price lists that detail all the costs involved and other services you may need or wish to consider. Our team is always available to answer any questions you may have.
Tax Rebates: Med1 Medical Expenses Returns
you can claim tax relief on fertility treatment costs as part of the tax relief for medical expenses scheme. Fertility expenses can be submitted for a standard 20% tax relief through the tax relief for medical expenses scheme if they have not been reclaimed elsewhere (e.g. via your health insurance).

Drugs Payment Scheme
Irish residents can access financial support for their fertility medications through the Drugs Payment Scheme. Drugs used as part of fertility treatment are covered under this scheme where there is a maximum charge of €80 per calendar month for medications (paid to the pharmacy of your choice). The balance of the cost of medications will be covered by the Irish government.
You must apply for your DPS card via the HSE. See here for more information: https://www2.hse.ie/services/schemes-allowances/drugs-payment-scheme/card/
When planning your treatment, please check with your employer as to your employee benefits. Many employers now provide health insurance or dedicated fertility benefits for their employees undergoing fertility treatment.
We are delighted to partner with FERTIFA, the UK’s leading reproductive benefits provider which now supports companies in Ireland.
We are very happy to assist you with invoices and receipts on your patient portal which can be used to submit claims to your health insurance provider. Please check your individual insurance provider for what they may cover as part of your plan.
