Just thought i'd list my costs,
each app with my ob is $65 and we get about $30 back on medicare. My ob doesn't charge the pregnancy management fee and he is the only one in my area that doesn't. I rang around and most of them quoted me around $2500.
12 week scan $180- $90 back on medicare
i am almost over the safety net limit so i should get more back on my 20 week scan and the rest of my ob visits.
ob delivery fee out of pocket after PHI and medicare rebate will be $300 and i have a $400 excess.
I had my DD through the public system and all of the costs for the doctors app and the scans were the same. So this time around i am going to be paying $700 more than last time but for me its worth it, i had a terrible experience in the public hospital
Hope this helps
