    Only the admission to the hospital related cost. The procedure itself will get rebate from medicare. But I don't know how much since we paid everything OOP without any help neither from medicare nor PHI.

    ok, a bit about my situation. DH has just been confirmed with azoospermia after his 2nd SA. scheduled to see a FS next week, not sure what sort of tests will entail after the first consultation.

    They hospital, surgeon etc will give you a breakdown on the cost and estimate refund from Medicare.

    We had TESA done recently and haven't claimed from Medicare but we are expecting around $600 or so.

    You would have to get the codes to see how much they give you back from private health.

    They will do blood tests first to determine if obstructive or non obstructive. Then usually is a TESA and then if nothing found at TESA is a mTESE.

    dreamkoz: sorry. This is the worst place to be. Hugs. Be kind to yourself. It is a shock to us when we first found out. it took years to come to term with it all.

    We booked in to see a FS who specialised in andrology. She physically examined both of us. That's when she was certain that dh doesn't have obstruction. If it is missing van deferen, she would be able to feel it. There is a long list of BT one can expect to do. The old thread has it if someone is willing to dig it out. Otherwise, on top of my head, they will test cystic fibrosis, Y micro deletion, FSH, testerone, LH. Inhibin B is an addition later down the track.

    Well you would have thought that I should get a break - three years of IVF, used donor eggs four time, three lots of donor sperm, 13 cycles and finally pregnant with OE and DS, get to 13 weeks and then.....

    Unfortunately the "high risk" message left on my phone yesterday was true. Have seen my ob today, and yes, devastated with the results of my 12 week NT results:
    - the NT is fine at 1.7mm (normal seems to be below 3.5mm)
    - foetal nasal bones are seen, so that's fine
    - but based on my age (42) my risk for Down's is 1:42
    - but free beta HCG is 4.900 Mom (much higher than normal - normal is 1, but abnormal is above 2.5) which is obviously why my adjusted risk comes back as 1:20
    - PAPP-A seems fairly normal at 0.930 Mom (1 is normal, but abnormal is under 0.4)

    1:20 is quite devastating, though I guess we always knew that my age of my old eggs were going to be a problem. Ob hadn't received the Harmony BT back from the US yet, so will wait for that, but it seems that an amnio will be on the cards. Ob wants it done at 16 weeks, so still 3 weeks away.
