If a fertility clinic has granted me an OHIP funded IVF cycle and I began the cycle but decided to stop the cycle before egg retrieval was done as I wasn't responding to well to the stimulation medications, can I choose to go to another fertility clinic and have my OHIP funded cycle there? I asked my fertility clinic and they said that I am locked in and can't receive an OHIP funded cycle elsewhere. I don't understand why because all I did was cycle monitoring with meds and the cycle was converted to an IUI; why am I locked in when I didn't do egg retrieval, ICSI or embryo transfer which is what OHIP funded IVF covers; anyone have any experience in this matter? I have tried calling OHIP but not reaching the right person to answer this; thanks!

I am totally guessing here but, maybe OHIP paid the clinic once you started your cycle.  So even though you didn't finish IVF, they ahve been paid and you must continue with them?
