Important notice regarding intrauterine insemination (IUI)

In 2015, IUI treatments ceased to be funded by OHIP, and became part of the provincial Ontario Fertility Program (OFP).  This change resulted in a limited allocation per year for funded IUI treatments.

This year, the demand for IUI treatments exceeded the amount of funding we received from the OFP program.  Unfortunately our funding for IUIs has been depleted, and we won’t be able to offer funded IUIs until April 1, 2018, which is when we expect to receive our next cycle of annual funding for this program.  The final day to receive a funded IUI cycle is December 10, 2017.

If you are currently pursuing an IUI cycle which will conclude on or before December 10, 2017 it will be funded.

What are your options?

If you are considering IUI at our clinic between December 11, 2017 and March 31, 2018 you have the following options:

  • Defer your IUI cycle until April 2018 when OFP funding will be available again.
  • Start your IUI cycle between December 11, 2017 and March 31, 2018 by paying the $725 fee that would otherwise be covered by OFP (please note that this is in addition to the $500 processing fee and any medication costs).
  • Discuss the possibility of an IVF cycle or ‘timed intercourse’ cycle with your physician.
