UK moves to extend free IVF to women up to 42, same-sex couples, cancer patients - The Washington Post: The British health system generally pays for up to three cycles of in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, for couples who have been trying to get pregnant for at least three years. Previously, women had to be under age 40 to qualify. Many government-funded clinics already treat gay and lesbian couples, but the recommendations now make that explicit, though they are not binding. The guidelines are likely to affect only a minority of patients and it will be up to hospitals to decide whether to pay for IVF treatments.
