    Hi, I am thinking of going IVF with the Royal Women's Hospital. I had one cycle done with Melbourne IVF this year and cannot afford another cycle with them in the same year. I am wondering how much it would cost for an ICCIS (spl) cycle at RWH and how long you have to wait before your first appointment with FS. I would appreciate if someone can share information. Thanks a lot.

    Did you do it at RWH or Melbourne IVF? I went thru Melbourne IVF and paid around $8,900 for ICSI, got around $5,000 from Medicare rebate. Tests, bed fees, aneasthesia, etc. were all extra. I just assumed that it was cheaper to do it at RWH as a public patient.

    There are two different programs running through RWH. One is a pure public system through the hospital...and the other is part of MIVF where you go into the public hospital as a private patient (and have to pay). I guess it would depend which program you are through as to what you need to pay (if anything).

    Oak,
    This is correct, you either go through the womens as a public patient - so you pay the same ivf cycle costs as mivf but as you don't get to choose your specialist you don't pay private dr consultation fees as well. There are minimal if any bed/anaesthetics fees as your treatment takes place in the public hospital and are mostly covered by medicare.

    I would ring the east melbourne pla's as they are the same ones who work at the womens so they can give you exact costs. It sounds like what you did was choose a fs at mivf and then you pay the cycle costs plus everything else on top. As the others have said though, you can still be going through mivf and have your opu at the womens and then the fees are slightly less, but sometimes the fs won't travel.

    If you go through the womens as a public pt you don't get to see the same dr, they have a mix of registras and fellows and I think you see who's on generally - occasionally this might be one of the mivf consultants. Hope this helps.

    Things may have changed, but when I enquired about RWH ivf as a public patient (2 yrs ago) the waiting list was more than a year...so of it's something you're considering & like to do soon I'd enquire ASAP
