For everyone, cost is an important decision factor for fertility treatment. Fertility treatment can be expensive and each plan is different for every patient.
Your plan will be suggested by your fertility specialist after carefully studying your case, consulting and evaluating your individual challenges with fertility assessment diagnostic tests. You can see high variance amongst cases. Some of the reasons causing the same are – different medical regimes, varying number of cycles, cost of medications, additional diagnostic tests, etc.
Please discuss your recommended plan with your fertility specialist and seek clarity on the treatments covered under Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and other insurance plans. Also, be informed about the ones not covered under any plan and which may require out of pocket expense.
All consultations with your fertility specialist are covered under Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). Feel free to contact us through CReATe Fertility London to know more details on referral and appointment booking.
