    Hi Bubbles, I know this is a super late reply but I will be going public through KEMH. I have my first clinic appointment there at the end of this month.

    Hey lovely! Yeah they do at KEMH. I'm still trying to find more information on it but I'll keep you posted if I find any You need to go to your GP and get referred to KEMH's public fertility clinic. I was told that the IVF is publicly funded, just trying to figure out any hidden costs so I'm prepared X

    Serious??? I'm paying $7500 for one round with egg collection. I guess that the waiting list would be huge and you would have to fit a certain criteria for this?

    We paid $8900 for one round with a private clinic in Adelaide and doesn't include freezing and testing and frozen transfer later on. Flinders fertility at flinders hospital is public but it isn't free at all you still pay for everything it's just cheaper then a private clinic but you will have to wait around 6months just for an appt. you can get it for free but both parties need to be on pensioner concession cards but in my opinion and some may call me harsh but if both parties are on pension cards then how will you afford the children you want to have. I know people that have used flinders and out of pocket is still just as expensive as a private clinic

    I used flinders fertility. I only waited about a month for an initial appointment. I was a fee paying patient not on concession and when we did our treatment the out of pocket cost for a full ivf round was $1600 including drugs, egg collection, fresh transfer. Our frozen transfer was about $1000 out of pocket (fully stimulated ovulation induction cycle). Their fees are even cheaper now (we last used them 18 months ago). Concession patients will get treatment for Medicare rebateable treatments (i.e. Not ovulation induction for example) bulk billed (free).
    Op I think all clinics will be different so give yours a buzz I'm sure they'll let you know the out of pocket costs upfront. I think kemh is free but ring and double check.

    I came across a post just yesterday. Another lady has gotten in an appt with KEMH. Perhaps look up for that post?

    I think you have to meet certain criteria to go on the public list at KE (don't quote me on this though, just what I heard), mine was that I had cancer. From what I understand I was entitled to one round.

    Hubby and I had to complete a series of tests before we got our appointment. He had to provide a sample for analysis, I had to give blood and have a pap smear.

    One of the blood tests was a AMH to Guage my ovarian reserve since my treatment ended. My result was 0.5 which is menopausal. Dr Williams asked me to repeat the test in 3 months as I'd just finished endocrine therapy that April which prevented me from ovulating and would affect my result.

    Well either my number shot right up or I got a miracle cause I fell pregnant the old fashioned way in February! I'm due early November.

    KEMH scheduled the follow up appointment for April but we had to call them and cancel cause we didn't need it anymore and they were very happy for us.

    Good luck ladies!
