Medicare, bulk billing and IVF

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

If your out-of-pocket costs exceed an annual threshold, the Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN) provides an additional rebate on top of that covered by the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for IVF treatments and related costs. It is important to register for the Medicare Safety Net as it is not automatic. Read more about the Medicare Safety Net.

If you are Health Care Concession card holder, 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 to receive low-cost treatment at The Fertility Centre.
