Why do I need a referral letter to see a doctor (with both partners' names included)?
All forms of assisted reproduction treatment are regarded as specialist medical services. As such Medicare requires that you and your partner be sent to one of the specialist doctors of the Fertility Centre with a letter of referral. This letter may be obtained from any medical practitioner. A referral from another specialist doctor is valid for 3 months only whereas a referral from a general practitioner is valid for 12 months.Without a referral letter Assisted Conception Australia is unable to claim benefits from Medicare on your behalf. In this situation you will have to cover all cost’s incurred for your treatment. Therefore it is important that you have a current referral letter before commencing treatment.
