If you’re planning on undergoing fertility treatment or IVF in NSW and want to access this rebate, we recommend booking in to see one of our fertility specialists now.

If you are based in NSW and are undergoing a fertility health check or fertility investigations, you may be eligible for this pre-IVF rebate from the NSW Government. To access this rebate your fertility specialist needs to fill out a Pre-IVF Fertility Testing Rebate form for you. Your NSW fertility specialist can provide you with more information about your eligibility for this rebate.
The NSW Government announced that they will provide five days of paid fertility treatment leave for teachers, nurses and other NSW public servants. This is wonderful news to help ease the emotional and physical burden of fertility treatment for NSW public servants. Monash IVF offers all of our employees paid fertility treatment leave. We hope that other organisations follow suit, and that other states will follow the lead of NSW and make IVF leave commonplace all over Australia.
We hope that this will help patients undergoing IVF in NSW, allowing more people to achieve their dream of starting or building their families.
Further details about timing and eligibility criteria for these rebates will be provided by the NSW Government when they share their upcoming Budget on 21 June 2022.
