NEWS ON INSURANCES
Are you insured through 'Zorgzaam' (Cooperatie VGZ) in 2022, with additional care ('ster 4 or 5') and was this also the case for you in 2021? If you were already in our medical care in 2021, a transitional arrangement is in place. You will continue to be entitled to reimbursement of a 5th IVF or ICSI attempt in 2022.
Please make sure to timely inform us about any changes in your health insurance for 2022. We do not automatically receive such changes from your new health insurance company.
NEWS ABOUT COVID-19
Dear Madam, Sir,
Wearing a facemask remains obligatory within medical institutions (including our center).
We kindly, but urgently, ask you to take care of a mask yourself.
When necessary, we will provide you with a mask for € 1,= each.
Gynecologists, obstetricians and pediatricians have seen the number of pregnant women with COVID-19 in intensive care double in the past six months. An increase in the number of premature babies is also seen.
International research confirms that there is no negative influence on fertility after mRNA vaccination. However, according to international research, unvaccinated pregnant women have a greater risk of developing a serious course of disease and hospitalization.
We therefore emphasize once again the importance of vaccination with an mRNA vaccine, when trying to conceive, when you are pregnant and when breastfeeding. For your own health, and the health of your (unborn) child.
The decision aids from the NVOG and RKI may help you when considering vaccination.
You can gladly visit our clinic. Please adhere to the general/current Corona-guidelines/-advice from the Government, the RKI and the RIVM. If you have typical signs or symptoms, you must seek medical assistance, and inform us you might be Corona positive. We are also happy to receive the results of your Corona test carried out. This may be necessary for later report to the responsible ´Gesundheitsamt´.
The waiting time for an appointment and/or treatment is currently probably longer than you may be used to. We understand, and notice, that this can be frustrating. You can rest assured that you don't have to wait longer than necessary, but kindly ask for your understanding regarding the available capacity. In doing so, we do justice to the time you need, and the time that your practitioner must have available for this. This is the only way we can stay healthy together!
Within our centre we keep to the prescribed minimum distance of 1.5 meters and wearing a facemask remains obligatory. Furthermore, we kindly ask you to enter our centre only if you are under treatment. Please do not bring children or other accompanying persons into our centre. If you yourself have signs or symptoms of a cold, sore throat, cough and/or fever, we moreover urgently ask you to not visit our centre.

Following an amendment to the guidelines of the 'Ärztekammer Nordrhein' the treatment of lesbian couples is allowed. A warm welcome to you!
The ´deutsche Gewebegesetz´ stipulates that only laboratories with a certification according to §20b AMG are allowed to analyse serological parameters (e.g. hepatitis B, C and HIV) in the context of fertility treatment (incl. IUI) and cryopreservation of cells. The blood samples must be taken within three months prior to the first cell/tissue collection. With favourable results, the results are valid up to a maximum of 24 months, after which a new blood test is necessary (TPGGewV). Unfortunately, results from foreign (i.e. non-German) laboratories are not accepted according to German law, which means that in such cases a new blood test within Germany is required.
