Hi Ladies - Im hoping people here will be able to help?
Hubby is Australian and we emigrated to Oz about 3 weeks ago. I have full medicare (Private insurance wont cover bump and i am 32+4 weeks)
I have had both a midwife and doctors appointment at my maternity hospital so far (one to register in person and the other a check up after flying so late in pregnancy)
Im really struggling to figure out actual medicare costs though.
I havent been asked to pay for either of the first 2 appointments - will I be billed later?
What about the cost of actually having the baby? Will we get a bill before I leave hospital?
The doctor recommended full hospital instead of shared care given that I am so far gone and only having a couple pre-baby appointments left.
I looked at the medicare website and MBS online but cant make any sense of it.
Can anyone assist?
