In the four months since the launch of the Ontario Fertility Program, we at Mount Sinai Fertility have performed hundreds of funded fertility cycles, resulting in many happy pregnancies.
Due to popularity of the Program, we are currently booking funded IVF cycles into the second half of December. In just a few days, we will commence booking patients into 2017. The rate at which our “dance card” is filling up is very high: just in the last eight days, we sent out 50 patient letters confirming the scheduled date for the start of their funded IVF cycle.
What does it mean for you if are just being referred to our clinic now? Prior to enrolling into the Ontario Fertility Program, you will meet with your Mount Sinai Fertility doctor and complete some necessary diagnostic tests. Your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you and, if IVF is for you and if you would like to pursue a funded cycle, than you will be put in the schedule. It is safe to plan for your cycle start to be well into 2017. Many of our patients choose to do private pay IVF cycles while waiting for their funded one. It makes perfect sense.
If you are interested in a funded IVF cycle, it is best not to postpone. Have your family doctor forward a referral to Mount Sinai Fertility. If you have any questions, please contact us via the form found on the main page of our website.
