IVF Costs

IVF Costs

Every patient at Life Fertility Clinic is treated on an individual basis. Therefore the treatment and services offered will vary from patient to patient. Depending on the specific requirements for you and your partner’s fertility treatment, the cost will vary accordingly.

However, fertility treatments and services may not be as expensive as your first think, as substantial rebates are available from Medicare and your private health insurance (so long as you have purchased insurance for fertility services)

Medicare Related IVF Costs

It is important that prior to commencing treatment patients are registered for the Medicare Safety Net, as this will enable patients to gain an increased rebate than would have otherwise been available.
More information regarding these rebates can be obtained at:

If you are in a private health fund and have purchased the appropriate level of cover you may be eligible to claim a rebate for the following:

  • Some medications
  • A portion of the fees for your treating doctor when treated in hospital
  • Hospital accommodation and theatre fees.

Your next step is to make an appointment with one of our fertility specialists. After your consultation with the specialist you will have an appointment with one of our Nurse Coordinators who will give you one-on-one advice on your treatment plan and the associated fees and charges. At this time you will be advised of rebates available to you from Medicare and your private health fund. You may also care to seek advice from Medicare and your private health fund as to your expected rebates, as these will vary for each patient depending on whether you have reached the Safety Net threshold.

At any time during your treatment our highly skilled nursing team or one of our clerical staff will be more than happy to clarify any concerns regarding your fees and charges.
