Ottawa Fertility Center Fees

We are committed to full transparency so you will know exactly what costs are involved in your treatment.

The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers most fertility related physician consultations and diagnostic tests. The Ontario Fertility Program is a separate government-funded program which covers some fertility treatments under specific eligibility criteria and is separated from Private-Pay fees below under the column "MOH Funded". Patients are encouraged to understand our fees and policies prior to payment. Email questions to billing@conceive.ca
