Introduction

The Fertility Treatment Rebate is designed to help with the costs of IVF and other Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatments.

Women in NSW who have received an eligible fertility treatment from 1 October 2022, will be able to submit a claim for the $2,000 rebate.

The rebate is available until 1 October 2026, or until the available funds are exhausted.

You can only apply for the rebate once.

Eligibility

To apply you must:

  • be a woman
  • be a resident of NSW
  • have received fertility treatment from an accredited ART provider
  • have received eligible fertility treatment(s) from 1 October 2022
  • be claiming out-of-pocket costs not reimbursed by another government program or rebate, such as Medicare.

You must not have received the treatment:

  • at a publicly supported IVF clinic as part of the lower cost fertility treatment program 

  • for the sole purpose of fertility preservation.

Note: Service NSW acknowledges people in the transgender community, or who are non-binary, may receive fertility treatment but may not identify as women.
