IVF Insider tip for this season: Most of the IVF clinics in Ireland become very busy from the start of the new year with new patient enquiries & bookings into February, so if you want to get scheduled for an appointment soon, then it is best to ring the IVF clinic of your choice now & secure an appointment because the longer you delay to schedule in, you may have to wait a lot longer than you would like for an initial consultation.

Also, in the beginning of the new year most of the IVF clinics start offering Open days or Open evening events where you can stop in for free and have a look around the clinic and listen to a talk from some of the staff.  It’s a nice way to get a feel for the clinics, it can help you decide where you would be most comfortable attending.

How Much is IVF Really?
IVF Cost Ireland: There are “extra add on” costs of IVF that you should be aware of

The IVF cost listed above does NOT include the cost of IVF medications that you will have to take.

IVF price listed above does not always include the initial bloodwork, scans, pap smears and consultant appointments, etc. that you must have done before even starting an IVF cycle. So if one IVF cost seems a lot lower than other clinics, they may have not listed the total cost of all procedures needed.  And sometimes the clinic websites factor in what you might receive back from your insurance or a tax rebate and put up the reduced cost, but you still have to pay up front first and then hope you will get it back from insurance, tax claim, etc.

It is also important for you to know that there can be necessary additional costs when doing IVF that are not always included in the IVF price’s listed above.  For example, if you have more embryo’s than you can transfer back to the womb, you may have to pay extra to freeze the extra embryos for use at a later date (after all you won’t say “oh just let those extra embryo’s die off”).  Most people want to let their embryos progress and then freeze them for use at a later date.  Embryo freezing can be another €700-€900.  If you are having egg donation the price can greatly vary due to whether you choose a known or anonymous donor.

Some examples of additional IVF costs / charges are:

  • Assisted hatching of embryo
  • Blastocyst culturing beyond 3 days
  • embryo glue (intended to help an embryo implant)
  • embryoscope, timelapse technology (monitors embryo’s as they develop)
  • embryo freezing
  • yearly fee for storing the frozen embryo’s
  • endometrial scratch
  • dummy transfer (this is a trial run to see if embryo transfer would go smoothly)

IVF Tax Relief in Ireland

You can claim a portion of the cost of IVF against your tax credits. This used to be done by filing the Med 1 form, but this is no longer how to claim. On 11 Feb 2019, The Revenue website states:

“The Med 1 is no longer available. Health expenses are claimed through your tax return form. You can claim relief on health expenses after the year has ended. You should wait for your P60 statement to arrive before claiming. You must also wait for the P60 statement from your spouse or civil partner if you are jointly assessed. You can only claim for expenses that you have receipts for. You can claim relief on the last four year’s health expenses.”

So make sure you keep all your receipts.

In Vitro Fertilization Price: other considerations when choosing an IVF Clinic

  • What clinic is most convenient for you? Location, scanning times, etc.. There will be a lot of going back and forth for appointments during your IVF cycle, how does that fit in with work, etc.? Some IVF clinics offer scans before 9am and during lunchtimes, etc..
  • Do you have confidence in the IVF treatment plan that is being recommended to you?
