Thank you for your question. Medical schemes do not cover the cost of providing for treatment of infertility from the risk pool of funds. However, most medical schemes will re-imburse you for these costs if you have a savings account attached to the medical scheme, (the amount of re-imbursement will depend on the medical scheme).

The question of how much these treatments will cost is best obtained from a specialist in this field. I have taken the liberty of posting your question on the gynae expert site.
