Can Kiwis receive IVF (fertility treatment) in Australia?

Hi, we are Kiwis and may be moving to Australia (Brisbane area), however I need IVF. What is the waiting list like for IVF? How much rebate will I get with Medicare? Is there a cut-off age for IVF? Can we have as much IVF as we want and still continue to get Medicare rebates?

Yes, from what I have read Kiwis can get IVF treatment in Australia. New Zealanders can get the Medicare card when they shift to Australia permanently, and Medicare gives a rebate on quite a large chunk of the costs involved.
