Quebec to Pay for IVF Treatment
Infertile couples in Quebec will now be able to access government-funded in vitro fertilization treatments (IVF), a first in North America.
Couples who have not been able to conceive naturally will be eligible for three free rounds of treatment as of Aug. 5, said Quebec Health Minister Yves Bolduc.
The province becomes the first jurisdiction on the continent to offer subsidized IVF treatments, which are a costly and last-ditch option for couples with problems conceiving.
