Many fertility treatments attract a rebate from Medicare.
The Medicare Safety Net also provides additional rebates for people with large medical expenses.
Once you reach the Medicare Safety Net threshold in a calendar year, Medicare will pay an additional rebate on selected items.
To claim the Medicare rebate, you need a current referral from your GP or specialist gynaecologist/obstetrician and ensure it includes your, and if applicable, your partner’s name. This will enable you to reclaim all of the Medicare rebates you are entitled to.
