Don't you dare, @Tahli! It's still too early to call love, and when you get your double lines in a day or two, you don't want to be regretting stopping those meds.
Thinking of you love. I know it's bl@@dy hard. Hang in there sweetheart.

Wow Julie/leyshoja, you did well there love! It's nice to have a win, isn't it!
I remember when I went for my egg pickup, and I was told the hospital fees were not claimable on Medicare. A few months later (I kid you not) I started wondering about the anaesthetist fees, and when I rang medicare to check (just in case) was told that yes, they are claimable. A few days later I had over $300 extra in my pocket.
Thank God for Medicare, I say. IVF still costs a bomb, but without Medicare we wouldn't be able to afford to eat around here....

Hmm the nurses here are almost convincing me that intralipids really are a miracle. Stories of women trying for 15 years and pregnant the first time they use intralipids yada yada yada. Shame it's not cheaper... Is any of it claimable on Medicare?

Anaesthetist fees will depend on how your Doctor bills them. My Anaesthetist was independent from my clinic, like a consultant. If your clinic provides the Anaesthetist (ie: he works solely for them) I don't believe they are deductible, but it's still worth a phone call to check.
When you look at your Anaesthetist's bill, you're looking for special numbers next to each service. So for example, on mine it says:
Item Number 17610* Pre-Anaesthetic Consult 15 mins $xxx
Item Number 20943* Anaesth/Occyte Collect 4BU $xxx
It's the Item Numbers which determine claimability, and if you call Medicare's Helpline you can actually ask them to confirm if certain Item Numbers are claimable. If they say yes, send in a Form (available on the Internet) and copies of the Invoice and Payment Receipt, and you'll get your refund.
As far as intralipids go, I have never had them so I've got no idea if they are claimable. I'd start by looking for Item Numbers on your Invoices though. If there are no item Numbers, you probably can't claim the cost. If there are, give Medicare a ring and ask if you can claim them.
Good luck ladies, every cent you can get back in your pockets helps.
(PS: I used a Day Surgery for my procedures, and they were definitely NOT claimable for me. Sadly, nor were the egg/sperm storage fees....)
