Infertility



VA is committed to helping Veterans navigate challenges that may arise from issues with fertility and the conception of a child.

VA offers a range of services to treat infertility and is here to partner with Veterans throughout the treatment process. Through VA health care, enrolled Veterans have access to many different types of fertility treatments, procedures and services including infertility counseling, laboratory blood testing, genetic counseling, sperm testing, ultrasounds, surgery, reversal of a vasectomy or tubal ligation, medication, and other treatments.

Veterans with certain service-connected conditions that result in infertility may be eligible for in vitro fertilization (IVF) or other forms of assisted reproductive technology services. The spouses of such Veterans are eligible for all infertility counseling and treatment options covered under the medical benefits package, in addition to IVF. Coverage is determined case by case, based on an infertility evaluation at a VA medical center. Infertility care is available either at a local VA medical facility to Veterans or through referral to health care providers in their community.

VA understands the stress and uncertainty that can come with infertility. That’s why VA providers are available to not only inform, treat, and guide Veterans through the process, but to encourage and support as well. For an initial evaluation, Veterans can schedule an appointment with their local VA provider or call the Women Veterans Call Center at 855-829-6636. VA covers infertility assessments, counseling, and certain treatments. Eligible Veterans and their spouses may be eligible for up to three IVF treatment cycles.
