VA Portland Health Care System
IVF - In Vitro Fertilization
IVF is the process of taking sperm and an egg and combining them in a test tube and then re-implanting them in a uterus.
For qualified Veterans, the VA will cover up to 6 cycles over the lifetime of the Veteran and their spouse.
How does IVF work?
Infertility must be the direct consequence of a service connected disability.
The couple must be legally married.
No donation of egg or sperm is allowed; there must be functioning sperm and eggs within the couple.
No surrogacy permitted. A functioning uterus is necessary.
This is a temporary ruling based from Department of Defense current guidelines. The policy is scheduled for review in 2018.
