    Default How much is the 12 week scan...

    Last time when I went with DS I'm sure it was free.

    I'm going private this time and it's $235 - is any of this covered by medicare or phi?

    TIA

    At our local public hospital, we had to pay for one scan. Either the 12 week or the 20 week one. I think it was between 150-200

    You should get about $90 back from Medicare. Phi won't cover it unless it's done as part of a hospital stay.

    Mine was $95 with no medicare rebate because I wasn't in a risk group. That was at a private ultrasound place.

    Thanks everyone. There seems to be a large variance. I'm hoping I'll get a little bit back from medicare.

    I cant remember how much I got back but I had reached the EMSN so it would've been more. I did pay about $360 at a private women's health place. I wasn't in a risk group so can't understand why you didn't get anything back Purple Lily. I will see if I can find my reciepts and come back. I have posted on here previously about it and which medicare item code was used.
