    Smile Healthscan Specialist Imaging

    I'm in the west and I had to ring around the different places. Werribee Plaza healthscan was totally booked out but I finally found an available place - don't give up if you really need bulk-billing, but I do recommend calling a few weeks in advance if you can, because these places get really packed with appointments! And thanks to everyone who commented on this previously as it helped me find a place

    Hey I am trying to find a bulk billed ultasound center in melbourne (preferably west ) for third trimester (32 weeks) . I have called Health scan werribee plaza...but they say they don't do it after 30 weeks.

    Any one who can help me out ?

    I am pretty sure the one in cranbourne bulk bills. Or maybe just if you have healthcare pension card as I didn't pay to get ultrasound there.

    Have you tried the other Healthscan centres? I couldn't get a booking at Werribee Plaza either, but I managed to get a booking at Moonee Ponds. Sadly there are not many places that bulk-bill anymore. Healthscan is the only one I could find. All the best, from Leesa

    I know this is an old thread, but my GP has referred me for my NT scan at Casey Hospital, she said they now bulk bill ultrasound. When i phoned to make the appointment, the receptionist confirmed this too.

    @Leesa I tried Moone ponds too. They say that though they bulk bills but they don't do the third trimester ultrasound (one around 32 weeks) at this center. Which ultrasound you had at Moone ponds ?

    Hi I'm really sorry to hear they don't do it. I wasn't as late as 32 weeks when I booked. Did you try Casey (as mentioned above). Sorry, it sucks not having easy access to bulk-billed ultrasound. It used to be a lot easier a few years ago... all the best

    Following imaging places I found which do bulk billing for most of the pregnancy related ultrasound (but not sure if all types):

    Healthscan Specialist Imaging
    IMAGING INDEPENDENTLY (associated with Eastern Health)


    Best to ring the closest ones and find out.

    Default bulk billing pregnancy scans

    For those in Melbourne out West try Wyndham Ultrasound 03 9749 0073 for bulk billing. Im new to Australia from NZ where all maternity tests and doc visits are FREE so you can imagine my surprise being told scans costs were from $160 - $265!!! Lovely Indian ladies!!! Hope this helps someone out there - wish i knew this with my earlier scans!!
