Vasectomy cost

The cost of a vasectomy procedure will vary depending on which clinic you attend, your level of private health insurance, the type of anaesthetic chosen and any concessions you hold, such as a Healthcare card.

Though there may be an out of pocket expense with vasectomy, over the long term it is a very cost-effective form of contraception with a much higher degree of efficacy than condoms or other contraceptive methods.

The cost of your vasectomy includes access to counselling services, STI testing, interpreters and access to 24 hour nurse-led telephone aftercare.


Medicare rebated vasectomy

These prices are based on the minimum cost of the procedure for people who hold a valid Medicare card and whose insurance doesn't cover vasectomy. Prices reflect the out of pocket cost after the Medicare rebate.

Local anaesthetic IV ‘twilight’ sedation
From $630 at a day surgery From $690 at a day surgery
From $1050 at a day hospital From $1250 at a day hospital

No Medicare coverage vasectomy cost

If you’re not covered by private hospital health insurance and you do not have a Medicare card (or concession card) you will be paying an uncovered price, meaning you will be self-funding the whole private cost of the vasectomy procedure. These prices are based on the minimum cost of the procedure and may vary depending on your location.

Local anaesthetic IV ‘twilight’ sedation
From $790 at a day surgery From $1080 at a day surgery
From $1385 at a day hospital From $1585 at a day hospital
