Healthcare coverage for infertility treatment varies considerably by each province in Canada. In Manitoba, a tax credit of 40% of the cost of fertility treatment, to a maximum of $8,000 refund per year (40% of $20,000) is provided to residents. When combined with existing medical expense credits from the province (10.8%) and the federal government (15%), a tax credit of up to 66% is available.
Treatments at an accredited infertility treatment clinic in Manitoba are eligible (currently, Heartland is the only such facility). The tax credit applies not just to IVF, but to other treatments and prescription drugs prescribed by the accredited clinic for both women and men. The tax credit is claimable on a calendar year basis.
