    I had a dating scan last May and didn't pay for it. My Dr bulk billed.
    The only scans I paid for was the 12wk and one at 39wks (not the norm). I'm in NSW too.

    I believe Medicare has stopped findings for pregnancy ultrasounds.
    In 2012 I had 4 ultrasounds and only paid for 1.
    This pregnancy this hear I've had 3 and paid for them all.

    When did they stop? I had two dating scans November and dec last year bulk billed. And the 20 week scan 3 weeks ago bulk billed. I don't have a health care card or private. I did have to pay for the nt scan but got some rebate on that. I think it really depends on the place you get the scan. I'm pretty sure I had a scan done with hunter imaging with my second baby and had to pay that one but I can't remember which scan it was.

    Wow that seems really expensive! Such a shame Especially for such a quick scan - ours was only 5 or 10 mins and we were out of there. That was at the public hospital on-site imaging place. I wonder how come it varies so widely when medicare is Australia-wide?

    Mine was $180 or so- I've paid for every scan and had them done at various places. I'm not on a pension though and prices do vary- if I had a pension and booked through our hospital I think it's cheaper/free but they are so booked up I would have missed the right timings anyway

    I'm not on a pension & was bulk billed for all my scans (we just had a regular 12 week scan as we opted not to do NT) ring around.. Though your local hospital is probably your best bet for bulk billing

    Im in melb and the place i went to when preg with DS used to bulk bill, but they said this time round with the changes to medicare that it's no longer covered and will cost $140.

    Im gonna just wait till the 12 week scan now. Can't afford to get both done, too many bills, mortgage payments etc.
