IVF Costs & Fees

At The Fertility Centre, we are committed to providing access to some of the most affordable IVF treatment in Australia. 

A team of fertility specialists manage your care and your out-of-pocket costs are a fraction of what you would pay at other IVF clinics. Backed by Australia’s largest IVF group, The Fertility Centre is the smart choice for affordability and reputable results.

How much does an infertility assessment cost? 

Infertility Assessment (Male & Female) - $146 per couple

This includes your initial consultation to discuss your medical history and the coordination of your male and female fertility tests. We bulk bill all possible blood tests and the ultrasound to ensure you receive a thorough assessment at an affordable rate. 

A fertility assessment can identify why you are struggling to become pregnant, and help our experienced fertility specialists determine the best treatment option to help you fall pregnant faster.

The fee is covered by Medicare. To receive the rebate please ensure both partners have a referral made out to The Fertility Centre and you both attend the initial consultation.

How do we make IVF affordable?

The Fertility Centre makes IVF more affordable by:

  • By bulk billing most blood tests and ultrasounds: If you are eligible for Medicare rebates and hold a current Medicare card you can receive the full benefit of bulk billing.
  • Having our experienced fertility specialists consult on a rotational basis: You will not always see the same specialist at your appointments however each of our specialists has extensive knowledge in infertility, investigations and IVF treatment.
  • Sharing a large part of your IVF journey with our experienced nursing team: Dedicated support is provided throughout all your appointments, from your first nursing appointment, blood tests and scans, to treatment options, as well as costs will be explained.
  • Standardising and simplifying our IVF treatment protocol. By drawing on our extensive experience in IVF, we have standardised our approach to treatment, which makes it more affordable while still creating good quality embryos. 
  • We do not treat complex fertility issues such as those couples requiring donor sperm or for women aged 46 or over

What’s more, our model of care means there are no additional out-of-pocket costs such as for fertility specialist appointments, counselling or day hospital fees, if appropriate. 

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to access a little "extra help" to conceive without the concern of stretching your finances, whether it’s your first IVF cycle or whether you’ve previously undergone unsuccessful IVF at another clinic.

Medicare, bulk-billing & IVF

Bulk billing is a payment option under the Medicare system of universal health insurance in Australia, where your health services provider directly receives the Medicare rebate as full payment for their services. This means you are not required to pay any up-front costs for bulk billed services. At The Fertility Centre, we offer bulk billing wherever possible for blood tests, and through our simplified treatment model, aim to minimise the costs of all other tests and treatments.

Additionally, if your out-of-pocket medical costs exceed an annual threshold, the Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN) provides additional rebates on top of that covered by the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for IVF treatments and related costs. It is important that you and your partner register together for the Medicare Safety Net so that you and your partner jointly contribute to reaching the threshold (this is not automatic). Read more about the Medicare Safety Net.

If you are Health Care Concession card holder or recipient of Family Tax Benefit A (FTBA), the cost of your IVF cycle through The Fertility Centre will be even lower. Find out if you are eligible for a Health Care Concession card.

IVF with no private health insurance

During IVF treatment your private health insurance can only be used to help cover Day Hospital and anaesthetist fees associated with the egg collection. In QLD and NSW, under the simplified treatment model at The Fertility Centre, your eggs are collected at the clinic in our procedure room eliminating the need for admission to a Day Hospital. Therefore you do not need to have private health insurance receive low cost treatment at The Fertility Centre.

IVF Payment Options

To help make IVF treatment more accessible, The Fertility Centre offers different payment options.  The most suitable payment options for you will depend on your individual circumstances. If you have any questions in relation to the payment options available please contact your local team on 1800 842 862 or email us
