Trying for a family can be stressful for some couples, so we’ve taken the stress out of payments.
If you hold a medicare card, we bulk bill IVF treatments that are covered by Medicare, so there’s no out of pocket expense. Treatments that not covered by Medicare will incur an out of pocket expense.
If you have private health insurance that covers your IVF treatment, the only cost you will need to incur once you're a patient at IVF4family is the medication prescriptions and the anaesthetist.
If you don't have private health insurance, the costs will be medication prescriptions, the anaesthetist and the Greenslopes Private Hospital fee which is $1659 (subject to change at the discretion of Greenslopes Private Hospital).
