Life - IVF and irony
The courier mail has an article on backlash over Tony Abbott's plans to limit public IVF funding.
In true logical style the response given is
Nationwide infertility support group Access has demanded the Government "get out of the bedrooms" and ditch plans to limit publicly funded IVF treatments.Do they even realise that the government is 'getting out of the bedroom' by funding LESS IVF treatements?
Some interesting facts in the article
$79 Million dollars from medicate for a year of IVF funding (up 50% due to safety net).
So, previously it was $52Million a year.
IVF treatments cost $7500 a pop, which medicare pays for half (before safety net).
That would be a little under 14,000 treatments every year.
