Assisted Reproductive Services (ARS) enables couples experiencing fertility issues to achieve pregnancy by artificial or partially artificial methods. It’s more commonly known as ‘fertility treatment’.
In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a common type of ARS. It is a service that helps women achieve pregnancy with the help of medical treatment. It is used to overcome a range of fertility issues including sperm antibodies, endometriosis or unexplained infertility. Treatment is administered by a fertility specialist, who is supported by a team of nurses, counsellors and scientists.
ARS are separate from maternity, which is a service with its own inclusions and waiting period.
This is simply a definition of ARS, and not an indication of what HBF covers. For more information about what HBF covers for ARS, please see 'Things you need to know about Assisted Reproductive Services'.
A benefit is only payable when you're admitted to hospital as an inpatient for services listed in the Medicare Benefit Schedule. For all other situations, you may incur a significant out-of-pocket expense.
For more specific information and benefits covered under each policy, visit the Hospital product or package page, or please call us on 133 423.
IVF and other assisted reproductive services are generally required due to an underlying, pre-existing condition. Therefore, in most instances, a 12 month pre-existing waiting period applies for this service.
If there is no pre-existing condition, the waiting period for this service is 2 months.
We will honour waiting periods already served
