Fertility Treatment and IVF Costs

Choosing the right fertility clinic is a big and important decision and we understand that a big factor can be cost. Genea is upfront about both IVF costs and your chances of success. When comparing the cost of IVF, it’s imperative that you research which clinic will give you the best chance of taking home a healthy baby.

Put simply, the quicker you achieve a pregnancy, the less expensive treatment will be and that's where Genea’s world leading science plays a critical role.

When reviewing costs, you need to consider this;

A review of our patients over the past three years showed 60 per cent of them took home a healthy baby and 96 per cent of those who were successful conceived within three egg collections or less.**

You get what you pay for

We are very upfront about our costs and are happy to talk them through with you. Come in and have an obligation free chat with Genea’s Fertility Advisor, who will take you through the figures so you can consider what is best for you.

Genea treatment costs are made up of the components shown below. It is worth noting, Genea doesn’t require an upfront payment. We won’t process any payments until after your procedure, whether you are paying by credit card or direct from a bank account.

Pre-treatment costs

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. Your doctor will charge for your first appointment, a cost which attracts 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. 

Understanding 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 at a Genea day surgery unit will be up to $1,860 for both egg collection and embryo transfer or $315 for an IUI (non claimable). Most of our procedures are done under local anaesthetic, which is included in the cycle costs above. However, in some circumstances general anaesthetic may be required which would incur an additional cost.

Not all clinics allow patients to stay awake during the procedures but we find many of our patients prefer to be awake. This means your partner can be present and you’re able to discuss egg numbers and embryo quality with your doctor and embryologist. Some clinics insist on general anaesthetic, leaving you to wake up with the number of eggs collected written on your hand.
