IVF Treatment Costs
How much does IVF cost?
The following fees are associated with fertility treatment:
- Consultations with your fertility specialist (including initial and follow up)
- Any investigations or tests you may require (e.g. semen analysis or AMH testing)
- Fertility treatment and the medications involved
- Depending on your circumstances, advanced scientific techniques (e.g. access to the donor programme, or pre implantation genetic testing)
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.

Specialist Day Hospital Admission
There is no Medicare rebate available for Specialist Day Hospital procedures, although some rebates do exist for anaesthetic services. Therefore, the amount for which you are covered for these admissions is dependent on your level of private health insurance cover.
If you don't have health insurance from a private health fund, you can expect to pay around $2000 for Specialist Day Hospital care (payable on the day of admission) and an anaesthetist (billed separately). Our Specialist Day Hospital team will contact you in advance of your procedure to inform you of the fees involved.
