    Default Private health insurance for IUI??

    Hi, can anyone tell me whether private health insurance (medibank private) is of any help at all when undergoing IUI treatment?

    I currently have private health but wishing to cancel it as we're not using it at all... But about to start iui with QFG and don't won't to cancel it and then regret not having it??

    Thank you!

    Hi fullofhope,

    PHI will not help with the IUI at QFG however depending on your level of cover it could be useful when you're having a baby Remember you'll need 12 month continuous cover with PHI for obstetrics.

    Good luck on your journey

    Hi fullofhope, just something else to consider before canceling - if iui doesn't work out and you decide to try IVF you may need day surgery which will be pricey without phi. Also if you need any diagnostic surgery like laporoscopy or hysteroscopy? Sorry to be negative but I'd keep it just in case if I were you.

    FullofHope, Medibank won't cover much - if anything - with IUI because the procedure doesn't require hospitalisation or in-patient treatment.
