Achieving pregnancy is not always easy, especially as you get older. Assisted Conception Procedures (ACP) such as Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) treatment can help couples who have difficulty conceiving.
To help couples better afford the cost of ACP treatments, from 1 Oct 2013, they can withdraw from their Medisave, up to $6,000 (first treatment cycle), $5,000 (second treatment cycle) and $4,000 (third and subsequent cycles). They can use it for treatments such as in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intra-uterine insemination (IUI). A lifetime Medisave withdrawal limit of $15,000 per patient for ACP also applies.
Success rates of assisted conception procedures are likely to fall with age. Couples are advised not to delay child bearing and to seek treatment early if they have difficulties conceiving.
