Definitely not, and never has been free. About 6 yrs ago the Medicare rebates were pretty generous, but every year the lessen the rebates, nowadays u'd be out of pocket $8-10k or more depending on the clinic
Is this an Australian thread? If yes, It is bulk billed in some cases, free up to a point (To get started all the blood tests etc) then can be as cheap as $600 if done by a GP with certification rather than a Ob/Gynae. PrimaryIVF BumpIVF are a couple I know of
IVF implies a complex series of procedures used to treat fertility or genetic problems and assist with the conception of a child.
During IVF, mature eggs are collected (retrieved) from your ovaries and fertilized by sperm in a lab. Then the fertilized egg (embryo) is implanted in your uterus. One cycle of IVF takes about 6-8 weeks.
IVF is the most effective form of assisted reproductive technology. The procedure can be done using your own eggs and your partner's sperm. Or IVF may involve eggs, sperm or embryos from a known or anonymous donor. In case of Surrogacy, a gestational carrier — a woman who has an embryo implanted in her uterus — might be used.
Your chances of having a healthy baby using IVF depend on many factors, such as your age and the cause of infertility.
depends on what clinic she goes to. some bulk bill the actual ivf (remote patients or concession card holders), but you still need to pay for the medications, (which if on concession is only charged at concessional rate), cancellation fee, anethesist, and day surgery bed, at Flinders Fertility in Adelaide concessional IVF treatment (obviously changes to suit personal needs) if BOTH partners are on concession the 'average' fresh cycle is $950 if your not on concession it's (again average dependable on your personal needs) $3.500.
single (women) has no discrimination, same sex couples have no discrimination, they just need to prove the have some form of impaired infertility
again to clarify, this is just a BASIC low-down on prices - www.flindersfertility.com.au
Idk about how she would get it for free, but you can get ivf if your single, just has to buy sperm and pay for ivf or ivi.... lots of single mothers can and have done it, as long as you can pay for it.
Not free. Theres no requirements except certain health criteria and paying the medical bills to assist. She's probably out having one night stands and looking for her explaination to the world
IVF is not free.
Do you get it cheaper or anything or is it one standard price?
But still not free though?
It should be free for single women and couples.
I should ask my friend. She travelled to Poland to undergo treatment at Invicta. As I remember well cause of price and success rate.
Yes there are a few bulk bill clinics around & you can purchase sperm if you need it.
