Understanding THIQA’s Policy on Assisted Reproductive Services
THIQA’s policy outlines the eligibility criteria, benefits, and reimbursement packages for Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) in Abu Dhabi. It is not a clinical management guideline, but rather a framework to ensure eligible patients in need of ART treatments receive coverage based on evidence-based medical criteria.
Determining Medical Necessity in Assisted Reproductive Treatments
THIQA covers Assisted Reproductive treatments deemed medically necessary. This could be due to a couple trying for pregnancy for at least a year, or one or both individuals diagnosed with infertility problems. Infertility can also be diagnosed prior to one year if there are features or findings indicative of subfertility, such as oligo or amenorrhea, history of pelvic infection, or abnormality in semen parameters.
Eligibility and Covered Services
The preferred age range for women seeking fertility is between 18-47 years. Exceptions apply for fertility preservation in female patients diagnosed with cancer. The Body Mass Index (BMI) eligibility range is from 19-40. Covered services include treatment, oocyte and embryo cryopreservation, transfer of embryos, medications, in vitro fertilisation (IVF), and genetic investigations.
The Future of Assisted Reproductive Services
The policy is a testament to the commitment of THIQA and other life sciences consulting firms to provide value-based healthcare. With advancements in artificial intelligence consulting services, we can expect more personalised and effective treatments in the future.
