Are fertility procedures deductible as a medical expense?

Qualifying medical expenses under the income tax act could include the cost of laboratory, radiological and other diagnostic procedures or services, with necessary interpretations, for maintaining health, preventing disease or assisting in the diagnosis or treatment by a medical practitioner. Examples of such expenses, which may not be covered by provincial health insurance, are:

  • the in-vitro fertilization procedure;
  • daily ultrasound and blood tests once the in-vitro procedure has begun;
  • anesthetist fees; and
  • cycle monitoring fees. The above is not an all inclusive list and you should consult with your accountant to determine the deductibility of your fertility treatment costs.

As of April 1st,  2016 – All Prices in Canadian Funds. Prices subject to change.
