I've been living in London for 14 years, I've only been back in Australia for not even 2 years so a bit unsure about our Aussie system.
My doctor bulk bills, so even though we go quite a bit (between me, my husband and my always sick with something toddler) we don't actually pay anything.
The only medical things we have paid for is recently for some appointments at a fertility clinic and a couple of tests they have ordered. Plus I had minor surgery which cost me about $50 out of pocket.
Anyway we're about to embark on IVF and the cost is $3250 plus hospital fees etc etc etc. Our clinic said the average out of pocket costs for this are about $1650.
I'm confused on how the safety net will work for me - I presume we won't be over whatever the threshold is?
