City Fertility Centre is pleased to offer a no upfront-fees payment plan to help patients with the financial obligations of IVF treatment.
The flexible plan allows patients to start their IVF cycle with payment delayed until the day of egg collection. On the day egg collection takes place, the Medicare claim is submitted online, resulting in rebates being paid into your account within two or three working days.
To take advantage of this payment option, simply fill in a credit card authority form before starting your IVF cycle.
The primary advantage of the no-upfront-fees initiative is that it minimises the amount of time patients are out of pocket for their treatment. Submitting the claim to Medicare on the same day as the credit card is debited results in patients being out of pocket for only two or three working days. Previously, the waiting time to receive a rebate could be up to 21 days.
Medicare Online is available at all City Fertility Centre clinics. This is a secure and convenient way for patients to claim their rebate without having to visit a Medicare office. Please ensure your bank account details are registered with Medicare so we can make a claim on your behalf. This can be done online at www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/online or by contacting your nearest Medicare office.
The following step-by-step process will guide you through this convenient payment option.
Undergoing fertility treatment is a major decision, and for this reason we aim to provide you with all the information you require. Our friendly team is available to discuss any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
