    There's a website 1800bulkbill.com.au that I used when booking normal scans.
    Can't help you out with the NT scan though we didn't get one (didn't even know they existed until I joined BH after baby was born)

    I had a nt scan at SUFW with my first about 8 years ago - it looks like it's gone up by $200!

    Shop around - there are definately bulk billing places in Sydney that will do an nt scan & blood test. I had it for my third bub about 2 years ago and it was bulk billed

    Also check if the price difference isn't driven by who is doing the scan.

    I choose to go to a private scan place because it is specialized OB doing the scans as opposed to technicians.
    It is also pricier.
    I paid less than $300 though and got some back from Medicare.

    Regarding blood, I was ~$80 out of pocket because Victoria doesn't fund it even for public patients.

    I am going to Queensland ultra sound for women and a 20 week scan is $360 about $260 out of pocket I think . My OB sent me there it's not just a tech that does the scans but a qualified OB who gives you the results there and them apparently best in the field with the latest and best equipment
    I to was a bit blown away by price Being a high risk pregnancy I will be doing it

    I had the scan done at St George Public Hospital and it was covered by Medicare. I'm 32, not sure if my age had anything to do with it, a midwife at Sutherland Hospital told me to get it done there. But with DD1 I had it done at an Imaging place at Randwick and it was not covered by Medicare and it was close to about $400 from memory.

    I had mine done at a private radiology clinic in Sydney, as I wasn't high risk. From memory it was $240 and I got about $80 back from Medicare. Had my bloods done separately and they were bulk billed.

    $380 seems excessive, I'd shop around if I were you. SUFW seem to be one of the most expensive, based on the experience of my friends and family.

    That's interesting! My midwife in the birth center told me they don't do NT scan there unless you're high risk or advances maternal age (I'm 31). Did you just book it through the hospital?

    I canclled with SUFW and have booked with Tara imaging. A bit of a drive (Campbelltown) but only $150 out of pocket after rebate, which is better than $480!!!! Results on the same day, as well

    Oh wow!! I wonder why you would have been told that??!!!
    So all I did was book through the hospital, taking along a referral from GP and my Medicare card.
    As far as I know I'm not high risk and never have been...(or haven't been told).
