Costs

At Westmead Fertility Centre we are committed to offering affordable pricing and enabling broad access to quality fertility treatment. Patients do not require health insurance to access services at Westmead Fertility Centre.

Westmead Fertility Centre is the only clinic in NSW offering all-inclusive pricing for treatment, theatre and freezing / storage. After an initial fee payable of $5,315, out of pocket costs after Medicare rebates for a standard IVF cycle range from $363 to $1817, dependant on where the patient sits in relation to their Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN) threshold.

In addition to keeping pricing affordable, Westmead Fertility Centre also offers eligible patients access to a Gap Payment. The value of the Gap Payment required from eligible patients is equivalent to the Out of Pocket Expenses After Medicare Rebates.^^ See table below.
