City Fertility Centre understands that each patient’s fertility needs are different. This is reflected in our fee schedule, which is structured around your own individual treatment plan and means treatment costs can vary between patients according to the different levels of treatment required.
With the assistance of Medicare, the out-of-pocket fees for City Fertility Centre procedures can start from $100, with costs increasing for more intensive treatment.
The first step is for you and your partner to meet one of our specialists, who will take a detailed medical history, arrange investigations and plan the most appropriate treatment option for you. You will be able to claim about half of the specialist’s consultation fee back through Medicare, leaving you with an average out-of-pocket cost of $180.
Please remember, a current referral is required so that you can claim the cost of specialist treatment. Referrals from a GP last for 12 months, whereas a referral from a specialist is current for only three months. It is important that the referral lists both your name and your partner’s so that you are able to claim the full rebate for the initial consultation.
After your consultation with a City Fertility specialist, you will be given a complimentary booking for a pre-treatment information session. This service includes consultations with our highly trained, specialised fertility nurses, scientists, counsellors and a member of the patient services team. All aspects of your individual fertility treatment plan, including the cost structure, will be discussed with you at this time.
Not everyone will need to proceed to treatment such as In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). Your specialist may in fact recommend you begin with less-invasive treatment, such as Ovulation Induction or Artificial Insemination – IUI. These range in price from $100 to $700 in out-of-pocket fees.
Our patient services administrators are available to discuss any questions you may have regarding treatment fees, Medicare and private health rebates, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
