No rebate with ivf @bbhope! eek! So glad you are pregnant now. I've seen so many ladies do 16 or 17 rounds of ivf and still nothing. I really feel for them it must be just heartbreaking and the amount of money spent on it Life can really suck sometimes. You just tell your colleague that the PPl scheme was introduced so mothers could have longer with their babies or they didn't have to return back to work full time straight away. It was to supplement paid mat leave and that's why you can get both. It's not like person writing that policy made a mistake and now there's a loop hole. It's there deliberately. Liberal have just put the word 'double dipping' into people's minds but they have a political agenda (which changes every second day). People are just such sheep sometimes. It is not double dipping. It was introduced for this purpose to get both.
Hopefully your paid mat leave isn't subsidised by the PPL. That would be unfortunate and almost false advertising by your employer. You girls are right. I'll get both at the same time. Don't want to miss out. I'll just get a bigger tax return for 15/16.
haha i don't think my bub likes it either. I feel him squirming about a little when he gets them. Hiccup feeling is quite light tho...like a very mini kick (that is to rhythm) so it can be easily missed if i'm not concentrating.
Oh yes sorry i did get rebate but was OOP for the gap. Can't remember how much it was but first one was over $200 and then second was over $100. i'm not sure i paid for the GCT test...but maybe that's stil in the mail. My OB stamps it with bulk billed. So you mean there's no rebate for the 34 week scan? maybe cos it's not necessary?
Yeh my manager has no clue either. I will need to ask HR. They sent me an email to read with all the documents so really need to get onto that.
haha @Minib maybe it is faulty. but he is old school and uses the hand pump one so i'm guessing it can't be faulty? my mum suggested i take my machine in with me when i go next time. hahha.
