RAMQ Coverage of Medically Assisted Reproduction Services

Public funding of ART (IVF)

We are excited that the Quebec Government is restoring public coverage of assisted reproductive treatments (ART) on November 15, 2021. The MUHC Reproductive Centre is pleased to offer the service and will follow the recommendations of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.

You can visit  Quebec.ca to find out how the program works and the eligibility criteria.

Please note that due to the return of this program, we may receive more applications and there may be delays. Our priority is the health and safety of our patients.

We will also continue to receive requests from patients who are not eligible for the program but wish to pursue ART. 

Thank you for your interest and cooperation.
