Discovery Funding cdn_helper

Can you get funding for infertility treatment in South Africa?

Vitalab has received numerous enquiries regarding the new benefits from Discovery for fertility treatments. Vitalab Management is working closely with Discovery for these answers. Please be patient with us as we work on getting clarity which will then be communicated on all our channels.  

If we have never met before, I am Dr Lawrence Gobetz, one of the SASREG Accredited Fertility Specialists and Medical Director of Vitalab Fertility Clinic in South Africa, with more than 30 years’ experience in the evaluation and treatment of infertile patients,

Now before we continue ……….

What is a SASREG Accredited Clinic – A fertility Clinic accredited by the South African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy, not all Gynaecologists offering fertility treatment are accredited by SASREG.

Discovery Health Medical Scheme (DHMS) has announced a number of changes and additions which it will be introducing to customers over the coming months in 2021.

It announced today  that in order to support members affected by infertility, in 2021 DHMS is introducing the Infertility and Assisted Reproductive Therapy benefit, to provide cover for Assisted Reproductive Technologies, such as:

In-vitro fertilisation (IVF)
Intra-uterine insemination (IUI)
Frozen embryo transfer (FET)
Intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
But, as with everything Ts and Cs apply –

Female members aged 25-42 years old,  that are on the Executive and Comprehensive Plans and who have been members for at least two years on the plan,  will have access to the benefit, with cover for up to two cycles of Treatment.
