    Hi TNTbub,

    I just had a letter from MBF rejecting all my claims submitted for crinone and syneral. Apparently they are both pbs-listed, and therefore on the exclusionary list. I'm not surprised really, but it would have been nice. So don't get your hopes up too high with MBF. Its interesting that PositiveThinker was able to get reimbursed from MBF....maybe I'm on a lower cover??

    Good luck with your claims!

    Hi Ladies,

    I want to know how much does it cost for the crinone on PBs and also if you have to pay privately?

    I paid $180 for a box of crinone, and wasn't able to claim anything through MBF, although it seems that other health funds may pay up to $50 per box.
