(a) in the case of egg donation by an insured person, the services required to retrieve eggs or ovarian tissue;
(b) the services required, including cryopreservation, to transfer 1 frozen embryo or, in accordance with the decision of the physician having considered the quality of the embryos, a maximum of 2 frozen embryos, in the case of a woman 36 years of age or under, and 3 frozen embryos including no more than 2 blastocysts, in the case of a woman 37 years of age or over.
