Japan’s public health insurance will include multiple fertility treatment methods under the health benefit package, starting from April 2022, aiming to reduce financial burden for those who try to achieve successful pregnancies.
The treatments to be covered include artificial insemination — injecting sperms into the uterus during ovulation, and in vitro fertilization — fertilizing a woman’s eggs with sperms in a laboratory dish. This benefit package expects to reduce out-of-pocket payment to 30% of the total costs.
