The DoD has provided IVF for awhile as part of its assisted reproductive technology (ART) to servicemembers who suffered an injury or illness during active duty which resulted in the loss of their ability to conceive naturally without the help of ART, but IVF has not been provided by the VA until now.
Veterans can make appointments with their local VA treatment facility immediately to determine eligibility, undergo consultation and medical evaluation, and begin the treatment process. Funding for these additional ART services is authorized through September 30, 2018.
