How it works?

Anova is one of the fertility centres authorized by the Ontario Ministry of Health to provide funded fertility treatments. Since the total funding amount is limited each year, there might be a wait time to access certain funded services.

Prior to your cycle start, you are required to sign a written consent in order to participate in this program. This consent allows Anova Fertility to disclose your Ontario health card number to the province to be validated for funding. 

If you are currently a patient with the clinic, please contact your care team Funding concierge to discuss our current estimated timing for the funded procedure that is relevant to your care plan.

If you are not currently a patient, please contact your Physician for a referral to Anova Fertility.
