First Step Fertility is dedicated to providing you with bulk-billed IVF to help make your dream of having a baby a reality.

With bulk billing our streamlined model makes IVF as easy on the budget as possible while you access first-class specialists, scientists, and nurses. In addition to this, our treatment model involves a Fully Stimulated IVF Cycle to give you the best chance of a successful pregnancy.

The majority of our services are bulk-billed, offering you significant savings because the entire cost of those services is bulk-billed to Medicare. We also keep out-of-pocket expenses to a minimum, bringing your dream of having a baby closer to reality.

Bulk-Billed IVF Guide


Treatments & Costs

  • IVF Cycle – Bulk-Billed
  • ICSI Cycle – Bulk-Billed

Bulk billing is a payment option under the Medicare system, where your health services provider directly receives the Medicare rebate as full payment for their services. This means you are not required to pay any up-front costs for bulk-billed services.

Please note: some parts of treatment do carry an out-of-pocket charge, including day surgery costs, PBS co-payment medication costs and some pathology tests. For more information please visit our IVF Treatment Process page.
