Due to the requirement for social distancing, embryo transfers at Greenslopes Private Hospital will have to be performed in a larger room which will attract a co-payment of $330. We apologise for this extra cost but look forward to helping more couples achieve their family.
Trying for a family can be stressful for some couples, so we’ve taken the stress out of payments.
If you hold a medicare card, we bulk bill IVF treatments that are covered by Medicare, so there’s no out of pocket expense. Treatments that not covered by Medicare will incur an out of pocket expense.
If you have private health insurance that covers your IVF treatment, the only cost you will need to incur once you're a patient at IVF4family is the medication prescriptions and the anaesthetist.
If you don't have private health insurance, the costs will be medication prescriptions, the anaesthetist and the Greenslopes Private Hospital (approximately $1659, but determined by Greenslopes Private Hospital) or The Toowoomba Surgicentre fee (approximately $1075, but determined by The Toowoomba Surgicentre).

Do I need private health insurance?
No, most costs are covered by the Medicare rebate. However, if you don’t have private health cover for hospital, you will have to pay Greenslopes Private Hospital or The Toowoomba Surgicentre for egg collection. This cost will be approximately $1659 for Greenslopes and $1075 for Toowoomba, though this is subject to change at the discretion of the hospital.
There will also be an anesthetist’s cost, which is at the discretion of the anaesthetist.

• Freeze semen: $200.00
• Storage fee: $400 (with no limit on type or number of samples) per 12 months.
If I have private health insurance that covers me for IVF, what will I have to pay?
