Don’t panic, your fertility journey doesn’t have to be an express service straight to IVF. Some simple changes can improve your chance of conceiving naturally.

When reviewing costs, you need to consider this;
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 Felicity, 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.
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, 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.

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 $1,805 for both egg collection and embryo transfer or $305 for an IUI (non claimable). Most of our procedures are done under local anaesthetic, which is included in the cycle costs above.
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.
Simply register your payment method securely online at the start of your treatment and we will take care of the rest.
To make things easy, you will receive an SMS before the payment is processed. For IVF cycles we will lodge your claims for you. You can expect your Medicare Rebate within five working days.
Male infertility is the underlying cause for around 40 per cent of couples who have problems conceiving.
Selecting a reliable fertility clinic to conduct andrology testing is important to ensure correct results. Unlike many general pathology testing units, our scientists are specialists in andrology and use world leading technology to analyse semen.
A thorough semen analysis investigation involves checking for unusual amounts of debris, clumping of the sperm and for the presence of cells other than the sperm. The number, motility and shape of sperm are also determined.
Below is a guide to our costs, however, we can confirm exactly how much will be charged once we receive a referral.
If you’re having trouble conceiving come and see Genea’s Fertility Advisor, Felicity. It’s an obligation free chat, where Felicity can talk you through other options we have available at Genea to support you on your journey to conception, either naturally or with the help of IVF.
