    I have heard that they will cover all of the medicines for it ( they are VERY expensive) and the procedures leading up to it but I don't think they cover the actual procedure.

    Hmmm ok. I'm sure that's REAL expensive too.

    Nope. You can get the procedure done at certain MTFs and it will cost you about half what it would at a civilian facility though. Can't remember what they told me at Walter Reed, 3500 or 5000. One of them anyway.
    Needs work.

    Off their website is

    In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) – Excluded
    And when I looked into it way back when I was told no. Your best best is to visit this site and go into the live chat with an advisor and find out what exactly is covered now for infertility.

    actually that has changed, going throught Walter Reed is now around $6000-$7000. We were planning on having it done around Jan but lucked out! Tricare will cover the procedures you have at the MTF but since they have to work with not military facilites for all the high tech embryo creating, growing and storage thats where you have to start paying. I don't know about all of them I only know about the stuff at Walter Reed. Feel free to pm me if you have any questions or just need to talk!
