A Guide to Rainbow Fertility Fees

Baby Feet 300x200

Rainbow Fertility offers LGBTI individuals a number of pathways to creating a family. These include a comprehensive donor program utilising Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

A great place to start is to meet with one of our experienced Rainbow Fertility specialists, who will take a detailed medical history, arrange investigations and plan the most appropriate treatment option for you. Please remember, a current referral is required in order to claim the cost of this consultation through Medicare. Referrals from a GP last for 12 months, while a referral from a specialist is current for only three months.

Following your consultation with one of our specialists, one of our patient services staff will contact you to organise for a comprehensive and individualised Patient Information Pack to be sent to you. All aspects of your fertility treatment, including the cost structure, will be included in the information sent to you.

If your treating specialist is able to diagnose medical infertility, Medicare rebates can be claimed for Donor Sperm Artificial Insemination and IVF cycles. Without a diagnosis of medical infertility, the cost of treatment will not be eligible for Medicare rebates.

 

Treatment Fees

All patients are unique, have different medical histories and as such different treatment requirements, therefore your treatment plan is always tailored to meet your needs as an individual or couple.  Once you have seen a Rainbow Fertility specialist we will provide you with a customised quote that is tailored to your treatment plan.

To get you started we have put together a comprehensive guide on treatment fees. To learn more click on the relevant treatment below.

The costs provided are a guide only and are subject to change.

Initial Rainbow Fertility Specialist Consultation

The first step in any treatment is to have a consultation with a Rainbow Fertility specialist, who will assess your medical history and determine the most appropriate form of treatment depending on your individual circumstances. Please check with your chosen specialist with regards to the out-of-pocket fee that you can expect for this appointment. Medicare rebates may be available for this initial consultation.

Before you begin treatment, your specialist may request some further investigations, such as blood tests (many of these are bulk-billed), ultrasounds, pelvic investigations or semen analysis.  Please check with your specialist regarding the cost of these tests.

 

Donor Insemination Cycle Fees

There are two main types of donor insemination cycles:

  • Donor insemination using a clinic-recruited sperm donor
  • Donor insemination using a known sperm donor

If your treating specialist is able to diagnose medical infertility, Medicare rebates can be claimed for Donor Sperm Artificial Insemination. Without a diagnosis of medical infertility, the cost of treatment will not be eligible for Medicare rebates.

Partner IVF

Partner IVF is when one partner provides the eggs which are fertilised with donor sperm, and the other carries the pregnancy. Partner IVF allows both partners to become physically involved in the conception of the baby.

If your treating specialist is able to diagnose medical infertility for both patients then Medicare rebates can be claimed for both cycles.  Without a diagnosis of medical infertility, the cost of treatment will not be eligible for Medicare rebates.

Egg Donor Cycles

There are two main types of egg donation:

  • Known Egg Donation

Known Egg Donation is where a sister, relative or a friend is prepared to undergo IVF procedures to provide the eggs. The advantages of having a known donor are that the genetic origin is known and the waiting time for the treatment is significantly reduced.

Please note that the following information is a summary of the current Rainbow Fertility fees and is meant as a guide only.  All fees are subject to your treatment plan and may change accordingly.

Please click on the state that you reside in or are seeking treatment in for further information:

 

  • Clinic-recruited Egg Donation

Clinic-Recruited Donation is where a woman will voluntarily undergo IVF procedures out of the goodness of her heart to provide her eggs to another woman. In the case of Clinic-Recruited Donation the recipient does not know the donor, and the donor’s identity may remain unknown to the recipient. However, a donor must agree to consent to release identifying information (name, date of birth, address) to a donor-conceived child.

Please contact Rainbow Fertility for further information regarding the fees associated with a clinic-recruited egg donor cycle as the costs can alter depending on your circumstances and individualised treatment plan.

 

Surrogacy

Although surrogacy arrangements have legal standing in Australia, Medicare benefits are not payable for assisted reproductive services rendered in conjunction with surrogacy arrangements.

Medicare defines surrogacy as “an arrangement whereby a woman agrees to become pregnant and to bear a child for another person or persons to whom she will transfer guardianship and custodial rights at or shortly after birth”. Medicare Benefits Schedule 2012 – Note T1.4.
