I went to PCRM for a consult on egg freezing back in 2013. I met with Dr. Roberts and he was straightforward and I was quite impressed. Fast forward and I now am in Ontario and am finishing up my first IVF cycle. It isn't looking great and I am researching other options. Clinic fees have gone up here since they introduced OHIP funding. I am in Vancouver frequently to visit family and have a flexible job so can work from there if needed.

 

Has anyone from outside of BC, but still in Canada, used PCRM and can tell me what extra fees are involved in you're not a BC resident with MSP? Also, does their IVF cycle fee include monitoring? I noticed they separated out ultrasounds in their fee schedule but I wasn't sure if that was the cost for each ultrasound or a general fee for them. I didn't see anything about IVF cycles and blood test fees but maybe they can charge those through MSP normally?

 

Any information would be appreciated.

 

Also, their PGS testing seems insanely cheap. It only adds $1700 on to a cycle? I am not sure how I can be reading that correctly when it is over $5000 here.

Hi there. From my IVF consent package the financial requirements states:
IVF Cycle Fee- includes monitoring, orientation and sonohysterogram $6000
Blastocyst Culture Fee-$300
Embryo Cryopreservation-$500
Annual storage fee for embryo Cryopreservation- $200
Total Pre-Pay with Freeze- $7000
Total Pre-Pay with Freeze and ICSI- $8500
Canadians patients that are coming from outside the Greater Vancouver Area will have an additional $250 IVF orientation and administration fee.
As for the PGS testing, you are correct that it would be only $1700 extra.
Hope this helps!

isn't the $1700 just for the biopsy, and then you pay the testing clinic separately for the analysis? Or do they do the testing on-site at PCRM?
