    I hope you ladies don't mind me crashing but I'm just wondering what the average cost of your ivf treatments have been through this clinic?

    Thanks Ngaiz! It's going well so far - 12 weeks now and have my NT scan on Monday so that's the next big hurdle 😊

    Costs for our cycle was total $5000 odd, but with the Medicare safety net payment we were out of pocket approx $1800, maybe a bit less. Sorry I don't have the exact figures on me.

    Hi star!! Cycle one costs around $1300, you then pay around $700 about 4-6 weeks after your cycle. You can take the receipt straight to Medicare and that money is rebated overnight. The second cycle in the same calendar year is the same but the rebate is $1300ish. Your initial nurse appt is free and the Dr consult isn't much at all. All tests are bulk bilked. :-)

    Yep! Home now and my final invoice was $5764 - and Medicare paid $3341.

    We had to pay $1450 at the beginning of the cycle and then it was the Medicare cheque and an additional $973 from us. Apparently we can take this invoice to Medicare for further rebate which we're doing on Monday.

    My cycle was 20 days though so maybe it was the extra injections?

    Oh I read that as you having to pay $5000 upfront sorry. But, it does look like that the price has risen slightly this year but still affordable.

    Star, if you have a health care card it's even cheaper.

    Thanks ladies so do you end up paying the whole price out of your own pocket before Medicare gives some back? Sorry for the questions I just don't know how these things work and how to go about saving for ivf :/

    No we paid the doctors consultation which was $100 I think (or under) and then when the treatment started we paid $1450 - after that everything was bulk billed I'm pretty sure and we waited for our cheque from Medicare to arrive, they sent ours out when I was 7 weeks pregnant so 3/4 weeks after the implantation. Once we received the cheque I took it in and they processed that as a payment, plus the additional amount we had to pay ourselves to finalise the account (which for me was $900 something).
    We also paid for the 7 week scan which was $300 I think? I honestly can't remember.

    If you put aside $2500 it will be more than enough for all the costs along the way, and you get a rebate at the end as well - I haven't don't mine yet so not sure how much that is.
