    @Dotty27 with PICSI and Embryoscope OOP was about $3500 + medications. I have PHI, so that covered hospital fee and after rebates (Medicare & PHI) anesthetist was between $100-300 (depending on gap they charged). For the first cycle of the year we had to pay hospital excess too.

    With your figures wouldn't the OOP be $9300 less the immediate $3800 rebate, so $5500? Surely the clinic don't take the rebate too?

    The other thing to bear in mind is the outside possibility that you may need to be hospitalised after a cycle. That has happened to me, so if you don't have PHI you need to know where you'd be admitted if needed. I was in a private hospital which was covered by PHI. I imagine there is a greater chance of OHSS and the like at the expensive clinics as they tend to use more stimulating drugs and GA, whereas from what I've heard the budget clinics with their twilight sedation tend to use less drugs, probably in part to avoid OHSS risk.

    @Green lady I was hoping you were waiting on NIPT and that would allay your fears. I presume the PGD didn't cover the concerns? You are in my thoughts. You're having a scary time.

    Your clinic should be able to give you a quote for your cycle which will tell you cost, and medicare rebates and out of pocket expenses :-) Way easier yo ting clinic than try and contact medicare...on hold fir hours then they hang up, the medicare site says they try to answer emails within 28 days! Seriously!

    They clinic have told me they are not allowed to quote costs after the safety net as each individual differs they only quote the initial/regular medicare rebate - so frustrating trying to get a clear picture. thanks

    @Billie2 i love you even more now that youve confessed your trash tv addiction. I watched australia's cheapest weddings again last night. Its hideous, yet i cannot look away. Currently im watching my seinfeld dvds. I watch at least 2 hours of seinfeld everyday and have been doing that for the last 3 years. I put it on when im in bed going to sleep. Its like my lullaby, i cant get to sleep without seinfeld on. I just watch them in a running loop. And i know them so well that once i get too tired and have to close my eyes, i can imagine the visuals/whats happening on screen just from listening to the audio. Its a very special unique skill/ rather worrying obsessive addiction. But it comes in handy for quiz questions on 'The Chase', so i dont feel that i need to seek professional help just yet. (I have considered packing my mini dvd player and dvds for athens. Dont judge me. I have a disease. )

    Good lord!!! You'd be better flying to Brisbane and could add a holiday in for that, plus you could sign up to see Wazza!

    I'd realised that the $9300 included Wesley and anesthetist, but think it's outrageous that the $3800 is theirs as well. Yikes!

    The other cost to include are FS cycle management fees and FS EPU and ET costs - you don't get much back from Medicare for those. Some FSs do bulk bill EPU and ET fees. Sorry...
