    I went to the emergency department but had to wait a few hours before I could get the scan. When it was time to get the scan, I got wheeled to a different area that had a room with the scanner set up and stuff...no idea if it was their 'normal' one or not.

    London (can't quote?) I went to emergency this preg too and had an US down on a machine that was pretty crappy. But I know that KEMH has the best machines as they have high risk patients and patients with severe abnormalities that need a good clear view of performed by professors in the field

    Oh heck yeah, Id imagine KEMH would have some decent equipment.
    All this talk is reminding me that I havent picked up my anatomy scan disc from the scanning place with my pics on it!

    I work in the health industry in Brisbane as a midwife at a large public hospital. All public hospitals have an imaging department in them and if your GP refers you there, all scans are bulk billed.
    As for private scan departments the further you go from Brisbane city the cheaper. For example - CBD $300, Logan/Ipswich less than $100 but normally all bulk billed

    They were having dramas with the burners so said to come get it in a weeks time...and at the time I couldnt afford to pay my bill for a few weeks so I waited and waited until I could pay it off and then I paid it online..havent been down there since.
    We didnt get a clear shot of the gender at the anatomy scan anyway so nothing to see if I rewatch it anyway

    To add to what 4underfour explained about Medicare rebates, the rebates on many services also havent changed in YEARS. Hence why some people may have been bulk-billed years ago, but not any more. Cos the rebate no longer covers the centre's costs.

    E.g. I work in health care and the Medicare rebate on an appointment in my field has been the same for years. However in the meantime costs to the practice go up (my staff are paid more, rent is higher, heck even things like paper for the printer go up over time)
