We thank Mr Goh Chee Eng for his feedback (Give Singaporeans and their foreign spouses more support for IVF treatment, Jan 25).
To support couples seeking in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment at public assisted reproduction centres, the Ministry of Health provides eligible couples with co-funding of up to 75 per cent of the cost of the assisted reproduction technology treatment, including IVF.
The amount of co-funding varies according to the citizenship of the couple and the type of cycle. A Singaporean with a foreign spouse seeking IVF treatment can receive up to 35 per cent in co-funding. Couples can also tap their MediSave to defray the costs.
