The prevalence of infertility has increased in recent years, but the medical services to treat these problems are not available for most of the affected couples. The prognosis for fertility is important in order to determine the therapeutic capacity of each service, and to select the couples that could be treated at a primary level, or to send them to more advanced levels of reproductive technology. In practice, the infertility is treated in primary medical levels and the assisted reproductive technology is available only to a limited sector of the poblation. In general, the managed-care plans do not compensate directly for infertility treatments, but they are indirectly paying some therapeutic procedures for fertility.
