Costs for IUDs

We usually require two appointments for an IUD (Intrauterine Device) insertion:

  • the first appointment is to go through your medical history, and provide an explanation about IUDs and what to expect during the insertion procedure.  We also do any pre-testing that is required, and organise a script for your IUD if needed.
  • the second appointment is when the insertion takes place. Please allow an hour for this appointment.
  • please phone us on 9227 6178 to discuss available appointment times

Clients with a current Medicare card will be routinely bulk billed for their first appointment (with their consent). If you don’t have a Medicare card, you will be asked to pay a small fee to cover administration costs ($10).

IUDs can be purchased from a pharmacy with a script (prices can vary, so it can be worth checking with your local discount chemist), or from SHQ at the following cost prices:

Copper IUD (usually easiest to purchase through SHQ) $100
Mirena no Medicare $235
Mirena with Medicare $39.40
Mirena for Health Care Card holders $6.40

IUD insertions (second appointment) are privately billed:

  • the insertion procedure itself costs $160, with a rebate of $107.15 available from Medicare ($52.85 out of pocket)
  • if you have a Health Care Card, the procedure is bulk billed (no out of pocket expense) – however you still need to pay for the IUD
  • if you don’t have Medicare, any pathology (tests) also need to be paid for (your clinician will discuss this with you), as well as $160 for the insertion procedure, and the cost of IUD.
  • If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please discuss this confidentially with your clinician.

If you require pain management, please discuss options and costs with your clinician.
