Ontario Hopeful to Receive IVF Funding


According to the national website, Global News, the Ontario government is once again hoping to fund IVF treatments.  While some opposed argue that its money that can be used elsewhere, many are supporting this measure, saying it will save money and protect patients in the long run.

For many intended parents who have no other options, this is a big sigh of relief. The Ontario government promised funding (for the procedure, but not the medication) in its budget.

The funding is not being thrown about lightly. According to Health Minister Dr. Eric Hoskins, they have established an advisory body. Their hopes are to have it in place by the end of the year.

According to the report at Global News:

“The government has said helping fund IVF could save hundreds of millions of dollars over a decade.

That is because many women receive more than one embryo in IVF, to increase their chances of success. That leads to an increase in multiple births, which can be dangerous and costly.

The government’s own expert panel found:

  • multiples are 17 times more likely to be born pre-term, require a C – Section and need more expensive care at birth and later
  • neonatal mortality in twins is seven times higher than in single births

So the government would only help pay for an IVF cycle that puts in one embryo at a time.”

Such funding has been promised before, but many are hopeful there will be more success this go-around and will be watching closely.
