Genea Treatment costs are made up of four components:
- Cycle costs
- Day surgery costs
- Additional science costs (optional)
Your first appointment will be with a Genea Fertility Specialist who will review your medical history and develop a treatment plan tailored specifically for you. It’s likely that your doctor will conduct investigations including semen analysis, blood tests and ultrasounds, which will incur some costs.
Your doctor will charge for your first appointment, this will attract a Medicare rebate. We strongly advise your referral from your GP or gynaecologist/obstetrician includes both you and your partner’s names so you can claim the maximum benefit. If you have already reached the Medicare Safety Net, your rebate will be even higher.
IVF cycle costs
Cycle costs include:
- Ultrasounds & blood tests (including first pregnancy test)
- Lab, Scientist & Administration costs
- Standard medications (on Medicare claimable cycles)
- Genea Specialist fees for day surgery procedures
- Coordination of your cycle by your allocated nursing team
- Planning and management of your cycle
- Counselling (except for donor cycles)
- Local anaesthetic (where applicable)
Day surgery costs
Day surgery theatre and accommodation costs are often covered by private health insurance but if you have limited or no health fund cover the procedure costs will be up to $1805 for both egg collection and embryo transfer at a Genea day surgery unit. Most of our procedures are done under local anaesthetic, which is included in the cycle costs above. Not all clinics in the market allow patients to be awake during the procedures but we find many of our patients prefer to be. This means your partner can be present and you’re able to discuss egg numbers and embryo quality direct with your doctor and embryologist. Some clinics in the market insist on general anaesthetic, leaving you to wake up with the number of eggs collected written on your hand.
Additional science costs
Some patients elect to have genetic analysis of their embryos, or also require additional science services. Listed below an outline of these costs, which are conducted in our laboratories by Australia’s most experienced embryologists using our world leading science.
