Canadian Report Urges Government to Fund In Vitro Fertilization
A new study concludes it’s more cost effective for governments to fund in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments than not to. The new study, commissioned by the Calgary Regional Fertility Program’s Generation of Hope Fertility Assistance Fund, estimates funding IVF would cost the province up to $29 million annually. However, it would save the health system up to $47 million a year - that’s because of the high health costs of dealing with multiple and premature births. The organization is now petitioning Alberta's government to fund fertility treatments.
