I. Medical treatment for infertility –hormone therapy
The costs for hormone therapy are covered by your health insurance. The aim of a hormontherapy is the stimulation of oocyte maturation and/or ovulation. This will increase the chance of conception during the natural intercourse to follow. The growth of the follicles can be stimulated with clomifen or gonadotropins (FSH, HMG). One can either wait for natural ovulation to occur or trigger ovulation with hCG (human Choriongonadotropin). Triggering ovulation has the advantage that the best time point for intercourse can be determined. The physician will call this “intercourse at the optimal time”. This therapy does not fall into the category of §27a SGB V.
II. Assisted reproductive techniques: Insemination, IVF, ICSI
It is of great importance to us that your wish for a child does not fail due to financial or bureaucratic boundaries. We can advise you and assist you in problems regarding health insurance. The costs may also be payed in installments. Contact us and we will be glad to assist you.

Service for Physicians
Consultation and conjoint treatment in case of hormone dysfunction as well as fertility therapy
In cooperation with you the treatment of the patient will take place. Once the couple had been in our clinic for their first consultation you will receive a letter promptly about our recommendation on therapy. Also, we will send you a copy of the therapy schedule allowing you and us to look after the patient intermittently for example for ultrasound or hormone checkups.
In order to involve you, the treating physician, the best we can it requires an active information exchange. You will be constantly informed about the infertility treatment. If you wish to guide your patients through cycle monitoring on your own you will obtain an ultrasound form to pass the ultrasound results on to us (endometrium, number of follicles and their size).
We will inform you about further management by fax or also by phone. If further medication is required we also offer that we will write prescription so you do not put too much strain on your budget.
