Frequently asked questions
Here are some answers to common questions to help you with the financial aspect of your treatment.
Is my fertility treatment income tax deductible?
The cost of most fertility treatments and medications qualifies as a medical expense under section 118.2 of the Income Tax Act. This means that costs relating to your fertility treatment may be claimed as a medical expense credit on your income tax return. Please be sure to save all your Genesis Fertility Centre receipts for income tax time.
How can I pay for my fertility treatment?
At Genesis we accept cash, debit card, Visa, Mastercard, certified cheque or bank draft. Other options include paying through a bank loan or line of credit, using a financing company, or using a health trust if you are an incorporated or self-employed business owner.
Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) allows business owners to 100% tax deduct fertility treatment costs through a Private Health Services Plan.
