NSW Pre-IVF Fertility checkup $500 rebate
Planning for pregnancy can be an exciting – and overwhelming time. Pre-screening tests can help determine whether a woman is likely to experience a positive result through IVF. The NSW Government now provides a Pre-IVF Fertility Testing Rebate that helps eligible NSW residents cover the costs of fertility testing.
The Pre-IVF Fertility Testing Rebate is a one-time payment of $500, available until 30 June 2023.
So, what is covered by the Pre-IVF Fertility Check Up rebate?
- AMH test
Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) is a hormone secreted by cells in developing egg sacs (follicles). The level of AMH in a woman's blood is generally a good indicator of her ovarian reserve. AMH does not change during your menstrual cycle, so the blood sample can be taken at any time of the month - even while you are using oral contraception.
- Semen analysis
To measure the quantity and quality of sperm.
- Pelvic ultrasound
Checks the lining of your womb and overall structure and helps diagnose any underlying conditions such as fibroids or ovarian cysts.
- Ovulation test
A blood test to test for ovulation.
- Fertility specialist consultation
Get expert advice to help you conceive and answer any questions.
