Fertility Treatment Should Be Covered By OHIP

Fertility Treatment Should Be Covered By OHIPFertility treatments should be publicly funded, an expert panel found following a year-long study on infertility and adoption.

The report, titled
“Raising Expectations,” suggests that Ontarians are making poor choices when it comes to seeking services to help reproduce, mainly due to the high cost of such services. Some opt for treatments that transfer numerous embryos at once, which is more likely to result in multiple births.

The panel suggests the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) cover three cycles of in-vitro treatments for women under the age of 42, and include infertility clinics in the public system.

The full report is available at

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
