HOW ARE THE FEES COMPARED

 

The comparison fees shown are indicative based on respective Service Provider's published fees, pricing model / strategy, as enquired or shared with us by our users / the public; and is subject to change. As far as practicable, we have taken conscientious steps to verify the fees with each Service Provider. Subject to their confirmation, the fees are indicative only and are subject to change at the Service Provider's sole discretion.

 

Based on our best knowledge, we will indicate the essential procedures and necessities for a standard IVF cycle, Medicare benefits relevant to a standard IVF cycle (as published in MBS Online) and the Out of Pocket (“OOP”) you’re to expect in light of the Service Provider’s published fees. The following are to illustrate examples of possible variations in pricing model/strategy by Service Providers:

  1. Fee does not specify OOP fees if the Extended Medicare Safety Net is not met in a calendar year

  2. Fee does not specify day hospital procedure costs required for egg collection

  3. Embryo freezing and storage fees are not specified if there are additional embryos suitable for storage.

 

The comparison tool’s aim is to provide you with a clearer depiction of the total OOP fees you should expect.

 

Our team conducts fee checks on a regular basis and the current estimated fees shown are fees published on centres' websites as at 1 April 2019 or as indicated by centres prior to this date. Most centres revise their fees once or twice annually. We strongly encourage our users to inform and share with us if you are aware of any fee/information discrepancies.
