No Gap Vasectomies with Private Health Insurance available

No Gap Vasectomies with Private Health Insurance available

If you have Private Health Insurance (PHI) and are interested in getting a vasectomy, then we have the perfect option that allows you to use your insurance and pay minimal or no gap.

Our model of care allows you to have your vasectomy in a premium Day Hospital facility, with the option of intravenous (IV) sedation or local anaesthetic (LA) at certain locations. About 30% of our clients choose IV Sedation and about 70% choose LA.

The “Gap” payment is the amount you pay after the Medicare and Private Health Insurance contributions to your treatment costs.

At all our Day Hospitals you will pay either no gap, or a maximum gap of $100 plus your excess. This can represent a saving of thousands of dollars compared to other providers. For more information on using private health insurance, read our vasectomy and private health insurance article. (You can also call your health fund and quote the vasectomy item number 37623 for more information).

This Private Health Insurance option operates across many of our locations, including in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.  We are operating from several private day hospitals in prime locations across Australia to deliver the service in locations convenient for you. Your vasectomist will be one of our vasectomy experts, who are all trained in the ‘Gold Standard’ no scalpel, open ended vasectomy technique.

Who should use this service?

This service works best for people who have Private Health Insurance (PHI) “hospital” cover but even if you do not use PHI you can still access our premium Day Hospitals and still have the option of IV sedation or LA. Please follow the guidance on our “Book Now” page to see all the options and prices.

Other options

Our specific MSI Day Hospitals in Westmead (Sydney), East St Kilda (Melbourne), Midland (Perth), Bowen Hills (Brisbane) and Canberra are our internal hospitals where medical staff training and education takes place as we strive to continually improve our service quality and standards. You can use Private Health Insurance at all these locations and also choose to have either IV sedation or LA at certain locations and we also offer a significantly lower price point for clients without Private Health Insurance.

You can choose to use Private Health Insurance (PHI) to contribute to the cost of your vasectomy or you can use Medicare only. However, for those looking to make the most of the PHI cover they have, it’s important to understand some basic information.

There seems to be quite a lot of debate regarding what type of anaesthetic to have for vasectomy. Some doctors only provide IV sedation in a hospital and some only offer local anaesthetic in a GP Clinic and believe that IV Sedation is not necessary.

If you have Private Health Insurance (PHI) and are interested in getting a vasectomy, then we have the perfect option that allows you to use your insurance and pay minimal or no gap.

Alright boys, it’s time to talk about the big V! Maybe you’ve had all the kids you want to have, or maybe you’re crystal clear on never wanting any at all. Either way, you’ve been thinking about committing to firing blanks. So what’s holding you back?

Most men have, at some point in their lives, experienced an impact or blow to their testicles. It’s an unfortunate side-effect of having them located where they are. For many men, just the recollection of such an event is enough to bring tears to our eyes. And this memory is often one of the factors that deters men from committing to a vasectomy.

If you’re in a heterosexual, monogamous relationship and have decided not to have any/more children, then you and your partner might be weighing up your options around permanent contraception methods, also referred to as sterilisation. The two to consider are tubal ligation and a vasectomy.

When it comes to finances, the choice between condoms and a vasectomy seems pretty obvious. Well it might be time to think again, because not only is a vasectomy far more effective at preventing pregnancy, it also turns out to be a lot more affordable over a lifetime.

At Marie Stopes we like all of our patients to consider their vasectomy a permanent procedure. While there are reversal services available, it is important not to make the decision to get a vasectomy based on your ability to have it reversed at some point.

The age of men who have vasectomies can vary as much as their reasons for getting one. Legally anyone over the age of 18 is allowed to have one.

There’s a lot of misinformation around vasectomies and sex post-vasectomy. In fact, most people don’t understand what’s involved in the procedure or the impact it can have on your body and sex life. So let’s look at what a vasectomy is NOT!
