If you are considering fertility treatment it is important to remember that not everyone needs IVF. Dr Rachael Knight and the team at Life Fertility Clinic Melbourne can also help you if your personal situation requires a simpler approach, for example low cost ovulation induction or intrauterine insemination.

However, if you do have IVF with Life Fertility Clinic Melbourne, please know that we are one of the most competitively priced IVF clinics in Victoria.

We know that treatment costs can be confusing, and we are always happy to answer any questions that you may have.

What are my IVF payment options?

At Life Fertility Clinic Melbourne we endeavour to make IVF treatment costs as affordable as possible. That is why we offer flexible payment options.

The single largest cost you have during IVF treatment is associated with the Medicare item code 13200. There are significant Medicare Rebates and Safety Net Benefits associated with this item code.

At Life Fertility Clinic Melbourne you can reduce your upfront fee by over $3,000 and just make an initial ‘gap’ payment.
