Fertility

It is always difficult to take the first step to seek professional help or opinion when it takes longer than expected to fall pregnant.

A first appointment costs $105 (after rebates) and during this appointment we will discuss these questions:

  • Is there anything that stops me from falling pregnant
  • What do I need to do to improve the chance of falling pregnant
  • Is treatment necessary now or can I wait
  • What kind of treatment is available if needed

I will meet with you in a relaxed an open environment so that together we can plan your investigation and management plan.

Intrauterine Insemination

Intrauterine Insemination (sometimes also called artificial insemination) is a very low cost treatment option. Your first insemination cycle is approximately $575, and any subsequent cycles are only $355 (out of pocket cost) . This includes – planning and consultation, ovulation monitoring, semen preparation and any associated QFG fees.  All these are fee after rebates.

There might be additional cost, for example cost for medications and purchase of donor sperm, depending on your circumstances.

IVF

Fee for the whole IVF cycle involves a few aspects:

  • Specialist fee includes planning consultation, cycle tracking, egg pick-up and embryo transfer
  • Anaesthetist fee for egg pick up
  • Hospital fee for egg pick up and embryo transfer
  • QFG fee

For insured patients, your private health insurance will cover some of the cost above and your out of pocket cost is approximately $4000.

For uninsured patients, your out of pocket cost is approximately $5770

Important Notes:

  • You will be sent a hospital account for the egg pick-up and embryo transfer. Depending on your private health insurance cover you may have an excess or co-payment which the hospital will request to be paid on admission.
  • You will also be sent an anaesthetist account for the egg pick-up. This account will be billed by the attending anaesthetist and may involve some out-of-pocket expense.
  • At the beginning of your cycle you will also receive an account from QFG for their portion of the IVF process. You will receive a rebate from Medicare which can be claimed immediately after the completion of the cycle. If not claimed promptly, this will affect the health fund payment for the inpatient procedures to this practice.
  • It is your responsibility to check with your private health fund to confirm if you are covered for IVF procedures.
