    Hi Gagingi,

    Thanks - so you spent approx. 7800 and got back 5300 with safety net. Making your out of pocket expenses approx. $3000? Sorry just checking I read this correctly.

    Our clinic have quoted $6800 out of pocket before safety net plus $1800 hospital and $700 anaesthetist for egg retrieval. That is $9300 out of pocket (we have to claim the safety net and wait for rebate after) and the initial medicare rebate of $3800 (which they do straight up) which makes it $13000 in total for the first cycle of the year with $9300 out of pocket less any safety net rebate. Guess I will be calling medicare tomorrow for more info.

    Do they have wild turkey lunches mate? Id go for that. Ive always wanted to be a classy lady who drinks bolly from a long stemmed glass, like patsy and edina on ab fab. Unfortunately, im a bogan. Although i try to make up for it by being fussy about my order. At least its top shelf and I will only drink it from a 7 ounce glass with a short straw. My local regular pub ran out of it one day, on the afternoon of the last day of school for the year!!! I walked up to the bar and the publican and other bar guy were having a huddled, hush hush convo, which afterwards they told me it was about which one of them was going to tell me they'd run out. Bar guy looked at me and ran out the door. Publican said, "can you just wait a few minutes?" I was like, "sigh... i suppose so but it is 3:30pm last day of school mate". Bar guy comes running back in with a bottle of turkey 5 mins later. He ran to the bottlo down the street and they happily served it to me in highly overpriced 30ml portions for the rest of the afternoon (i lie- until 2am when they kicked me out).

    I hate that cookies or whatever internet spies are out there, know that i search for "fertility" stuff and so my facebook feed suggested posts n ads are all about huggies nappies, baby names, parenting sites etc... took me a while to figure that out. Thought the universe was frucking with my head for a while there.

I wish we had a transparent system like the US where you can look online and see what clinic has the best results.

    Hello to the new ladies.
    Im thinking about that and reckon, theyd have to really categorise the group stats for take home baby too though, coz even if you did it by age brackets, you'd have to look at stats for age and the specific fertility issue/s too. Like id need stats for 36 years old and stage 4 endo i reckon coz the 36 year old general ivf population stats r useless for me. According to the stats for 36 years old, it shoulda worked ages ago. And you'd have to split the stats for single transfer and double transfer too. Im not sure exactly how theyd be able to acurately do it in a general sorta way, iykwim? But it would be nice if they did!

    @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!
