Fertility Assessment and Diagnostic Tests

  • Hormonal Evaluation
  • Ultrasound Testing
  • Reproductive genetic testing
  • Semen analysis

Your fertility specialist may recommend blood hormone or semen analysis tests to determine the cause(s) of infertility. Some of these tests may be covered under Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) while others may not be.

Please discuss your diagnostic test plan with your fertility specialist and feel free to seek clarity on provincial and insurance coverage. Be informed on the tests that may require out-of-pocket expense.

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) and In-vitro fertilization (IVF)

  • IUI: The province of Ontario provides funding for all IUI cycles for women with an Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).
  • IVF: The province of Ontario provides funding for one IVF cycle. This is restricted to women with OHIP. This funding does not cover medication, embryo storage, and other special procedures. For more information about funding eligibility, visit
