In British Columbia, the Medical Services Plan will cover your initial fertility assessment. Many of the fertility treatments that follow are not publicly funded. Courses of therapy vary considerably from individual to individual, and as such it is difficult to accurately determine the cost prior to a patient assessment.
Following your initial work up, our medical staff will be able to more accurately provide costing estimates, including medication. Note that medication required during your treatment may be covered by your third party insurer (for example Green Shield Canada). You are encouraged to contact your insurer directly to determine your individual eligibility. It is important to note that fertility medications are typically covered as an exception by most insurers, and as such it is the decision of the employer to offer it as a benefit in their respective plan for their employees.
The Income Tax Act (118.2) and the interpretation bulletins (IT-519R2), Canada Revenue Agency, suggest that fertility procedures qualify as medical services as they relate to the medical condition of infertility. Provided the amount is paid by an individual to either a medical practitioner, a public or licensed private hospital in respect of services provided to the individual, or to the individual’s spouse, common law partner, or dependent, such amounts would qualify for the medical expense tax credit on your tax return.
We encourage you to consult with an accountant to confirm your specific circumstance.
Financing options are available through Medicard Financing.
