Australian women will receive a $2,000 rebate on IVF to assist them in having children.

A new government plan will provide a financial reimbursement of up to $2,000 to NSW women undergoing IVF or other reproductive procedures.

According to NSW Treasurer Matt Kean, the budget promise for 2022/23 will assist roughly 12,000 women who utilize private IVF clinics.

Under the $80 million plan, another 6,180 women will be able to have publicly funded IVF therapy.

Mr Kean said in a statement on Sunday, “We recognize that the expenses of these therapies might be unreasonably exorbitant.”

The NSW government has announced a new $80 million fertility package that will come into effect from January 1

‘No-one should have to face the impossible choice between looking after their household budget and starting a family.’

A single cycle of IVF can cost Australian couples up to $10,000.

Adora Fertility, which bulk-bills for some IVF-related expenses, is able to reduce that cost to about $1500.

‘With today’s announcement, Adora Fertility patients could potentially have no out of pocket expenses for their fertility treatments,’ Adora’s national medical director Paul Atkinson said.

‘Cost is a major barrier to couples accessing fertility treatment. We believe that high-quality fertility treatment should be accessible to all Australian couples.’

The $80 million package will also extend rebates for pre-IVF fertility testing, boost the number of fertility preservation services and provide five days of paid fertility leave for teachers, nurses and other public servants.

The $2000 rebate scheme will open on January 1, but women who undergo an eligible procedure from October 1 can also submit a claim.
