The long-term fiscal impact of funding cuts for IVF in Denmark
Date:7/6/2011

ed generational accounting framework to estimate the return on investment for the Danish government based on public funding of IVF and ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection). In the model, publicly funded IVF-treatment costs were added to the sum of discounted age-specific transfers between the government and the individual (tax contributions, healthcare, social benefits, education and retirement contributions) to calculate the net present value of investment in ART. This was compared to naturally conceived children, using the same calculation without ART cost depreciation. This analysis is based on annualised net tax receipts attributed to a single year of ART children and would be equally applicable in subsequent years, therefore compounding the fiscal effects of the policy change over time.

The average cost per live birth was estimated as 2,675 per cycle [1]. The model assumed a 30-50% reduction in ART births following the implementation of the new policy. The authors believe this to be an underestimate since only IVF/ICSI births in public clinics were considered. This estimated reduction is comparable to Germany, when the government introduced co-payments for ART of 50% in 2004. This resulted in an estimated 10,000 fewer births in one year, a small but meaningful demographic impact.
