What’s not included in the refund plans??

We have included everything in our refund plans which we believe is normally required for IVF treatment. There are some treatments and tests which are not included but on occasions may be required by a clinic or requested by yourself. Examples of these would be karyotyping, endometrial scratch or hysteroscopy.

What’s not included in the multi cycle plan?

In our multi cycle plan, medication, consultations and related tests are not included.  There are also some treatments and tests which are not included but on occasions may be required by a clinic or requested by yourself. Examples of these would be karyotyping, endometrial scratch or hysteroscopy.

What about other tests and procedures?

Occasionally, patients may be required to undertake additional tests or procedures either before or during the treatment, for example a hysteroscopy or endometrial biopsy. The costs for such tests or procedures are not covered by the Assured Plan.

What is in the medical questionnaire?

As part of the process, we will ask yourself and your partner to complete medical questionnaires. This covers general medical information and also information regarding any IVF treatment you have had before. We may also request other information from you during the process. It is important that:

  1. a) you fully disclose all relevant information and;
  2. b) the information you supply is complete and accurate.

The refund guarantee in your plan may be affected if you have not done so.
