    Default Medicare safety net

    Hi
    Can anyone clarify for me, when the clinic quotes you out of pocket cost, they have taken off the rebate after the safety net has been reached?????
    If anyone has an accurate breakdown of costs for monash for icsi or ivf I would really appreciate the figure!!
    Not sure how/when we are going to be able to afford all this but soooo want to get started like now!!!!

    Thanks for any replies!

    My quote didn't include any safety net ... I think they usually err on the side of caution and do the general rebate, not safety net.

    There was fine print in my package that talked about higher rebates if you were registered for the safety net ... Maybe just ask them directly - my clinic in Brissie was really helpful.

    It's expensive and hard, but worth it - my 2nd ivf bub is due 24/5 and can't wait!
    Good luck
