So I had an ultrasound at 17 weeks for fetal well being after I had a complicated CVS in week 12. Just checking on the amniotic fluid etc. I was referred by my GP and went to my local medical imaging, which they bulk billed.
So at my 19-20 week Morphology/anomaly scan (I went to Sydney ultrasound for women), they charged $375. I assumed I'd get must of that back because I have already reached the safety net threshold. Anyway, I went into medicare today and they said I can't get anything/much back because I've already had a morphology scan. To which I replied I hadn't. She said to contact the other place and get them to reverse it. So I called the original place, and they refused to change it, despite the fact it wasn't a morphology scan. They said you are only entitled to one scan between 17-22 weeks.
I read on an old forum you can have one from a GP referral and one from your OB (which mine were). Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Wish someone had told me before I shelled out $375 at SUFW.
Btw, my GP definitely wrote 'well being after CVS' on the 17 week one.
