Frequently asked questions
Here are some answers to common questions to help you with the financial aspect of your treatment.
Is my fertility treatment income tax deductible?
The cost of most fertility treatments and medications qualifies as a medical expense under section 118.2 of the Income Tax Act. This means that costs relating to your fertility treatment may be claimed as a medical expense credit on your income tax return. Please be sure to save all your Genesis Fertility Centre receipts for income tax time.
How much will IVF really cost?
The total cost of an IVF cycle is approximately $9000-$10,000. The total cost of an ICSI cycle is approximately $11,000. Here’s how it breaks down:
|Freezing embryos and annual storage||$ 700|
ICSI costs an additional $1500. About 70% of our patients will have extra embryos created during their IVF or ICSI cycle. You will only pay for freezing embryos if you have extra embryos that you wish to freeze.
How can I pay for my fertility treatment?
At Genesis we accept cash, debit card, Visa, Mastercard, certified cheque or bank draft. Other options include paying through a bank loan or line of credit, using a financing company, or using a health trust if you are an incorporated or self-employed business owner.
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows business owners to 100% tax deduct fertility treatment costs through a Private Health Services Plan. The John Robinson Group Inc and Trusted Advisor™ specializes in assisting patients meet their financial goals. Please visit www.trustedadvisor.ca for a list of approved expenses and an online application.
How do I arrange financing?
Genesis does not offer financing directly, but we can help direct you to a financing company and provide them with the necessary information about your treatment.
There are specialized financing companies who offer financing for medical procedures. Interest rates are usually less than normal credit card rates. If you are interested in finding out more about financing options, please refer to the link below:
Cycle Monitoring For Other Clinics
Genesis helps patients attending clinics all around the world.
We are happy to assist with the monitoring of fertility treatment at other clinics because we realize this will help to reduce the cost, time commitment and stress associated with the treatment cycle.
We help with testing, treatment and medications. We can fill prescriptions for most fertility medications at our pharmacy. We can also rewrite/cosign most other prescriptions sent to us from the other clinic so they can be filled in B.C.
For fees please call the clinic at 604-879-3032 and ask to speak with our “Out of Town Monitoring Nurse.”
