In Australia, Medicare provides a rebate for fertility treatments if there is a medical need for the treatment. If you’re choosing to freeze your eggs for non-medical reasons, you won’t be eligible to receive Medicare assistance for your egg freezing treatment cycle.
Costs may vary depending on your individual circumstances. Your first step is to consult with a fertility specialist to discuss whether egg freezing is an appropriate treatment option for you.
Contact our team of fertility nurses on 1800 628 533 to discuss what costs might be involved if you decide to freeze your eggs.

How can you put a value on the chance to have a biological child? This is what I kept telling myself. It can be expensive, but it was also really important to me.

I rationalised it by saying that people borrow a little ‘extra’ on their home loans for whatever reasons all the time.
