How much does IVF Cost in Ireland?

IVF Ireland Cost

At Merrion Fertility Clinic we are conscious of the high Fertility Treatment and IVF Costs in Ireland. We have tried in recent times to raise awareness about this in Ireland and part of our mission is to advocate for services as part of state provided health care. 

As we are a ‘Not for Profit’ organisation we try to keep our costs to a minimum but unfortunately Assisted Reproduction is expensive. Some couples may be eligible for financial assistance through the Merrion Fertility Foundation.

There is also limited amount of cover available to patients with private health insurance cover:

LAYA

MFC is an approved centre with LAYA Healthcare who offer up to €1,000 twice in a lifetime towards specific infertility treatments (IUI, ICSI and IVF) on some of their plans.  We strongly recommend that you contact LAYA to confirm if you are entitled to any cover before commencing treatment at 021 2022000

VHI

VHI provide cover for certain surgical procedures provided by our doctors. You can check if you qualify by contacting VHI Member Support on 1890 44 44 44.

VHI also offer benefits towards certain fertility treatments for up to two treatments.  This is a cost sharing scheme that would require a significant financial contribution by Merrion Fertility Clinic. Facilitating this scheme would ultimately result in increased prices across all of our treatments and services.  Therefore MFC have not entered a partnership with VHI to cover these fertility treatments.
