In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Treatment
Veterans and their Spouse
In January, VA regulations were amended to offer in vitro fertilization (IVF) evaluation and treatment to Veterans with service-connected conditions that resulted in infertility, as well as to their spouses. The benefit was added to existing infertility services.
This is a long-awaited benefit for many Veteran couples, and hundreds nationally are expected to seek evaluation and treatment. More information about infertility treatment options for eligible Veterans and their spouses can be found in the IVF Fact Sheet for Veterans.
Health Care Providers
Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) specialists in the community are an integral partner in VA’s efforts to ensure that Veterans receive the infertility care and services they need. If you are an REI provider interested in offering IVF treatment to eligible Veterans as a Community Care/Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) provider, you must first enroll to be a part of the Health Net or TriWest provider network.
- Join TriWest's network of health care providers
- Join the Health Net Federal Services' PCCC network
- To determine which provider network is in your area, please refer to the Patient-Centered Community Care (PC3) coverage map
