Subsidy for infertility treatment

Information in English

Expensive fertility treatments are frequently only partially covered by health insurance; however, there is a possibility of obtaining state support. On this page, you can explore the details regarding eligibility and the application process for receiving this support. Submit your application conveniently and swiftly through our digital platform.
The eligibility criteria for receiving a subsidy are contingent upon your primary place of residence. As of November 2023, the digital application is available for residents of Bremen, Rhineland-Palatinate, and Saxony-Anhalt on this page. If you reside in another federal state, kindly refer to your respective state's information platform for further guidance.

Bremen, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony-Anhalt will cover part of the costs incurred for your planned fertility treatment. You can also receive a grant from the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs.
