I am trying to find out costings of surrogacy. I have already found a lot from Queensland Fertility Group about the medical costs to do with egg retrieval and transfer and I am pretty sure none of this is covered by Medicare. What I now need to know is when the surrogate is pregnant, what is covered by Medicare during the pregnancy and birth.
QFG tell me that with the IVF stuff that there are no Medicare item codes because it is for surrogacy so I'm just concerned that this would continue through the pregnancy and the birth.
Does anyone know? I'm talking about doctor's appointments, scans and the hospital and anything else there may be. I'm hoping that because it is just a normal pregnancy after all the IVF that it will be treated as such by Medicare.
