The assisted procreation services listed below and rendered in a centre for assisted procreation that holds a licence issued in accordance with the Regulation respecting clinical activities related to assisted procreation (chapter A-5.01, r. 1) by a physician who practises at the centre must be considered as insured services for the purposes of subparagraph e of the first paragraph of section 3 of the Act:
(a)  in the case of egg donation by an insured person, the services required to retrieve eggs or ovarian tissue;
(b)  the services required, including cryopreservation, to transfer 1 frozen embryo or, in accordance with the decision of the physician having considered the quality of the embryos, a maximum of 2 frozen embryos, in the case of a woman 36 years of age or under, and 3 frozen embryos including no more than 2 blastocysts, in the case of a woman 37 years of age or over.

However, after 1 live birth obtained following an IVF referred to in that section, transfers of frozen embryos, determined according to the conditions referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph, are considered as only 1 modified natural cycle or natural cycle IVF insured under the first paragraph of section 34.4, even if the transfers are done during separate tests.
