    Hi I'm at Westmead but not sure about PGD? What's that is that where they test the embryos ?

    Hi hopeful37.
    Pgd is where they test the embryos. For our case, they need to identify the gene that causes my DHs genetic condition so we don't pass it on to our future Bubs
    I think it's quite new at WFC, I think they only started this year. Was hoping someone else was doing it through there

    Those who did PGD testing through WFC. Did you get medicare rebate on PGD testing? Does it count towards medicare threshold?

    I'm not with westmead but just wanted to chime in, it's outside the Medicare safety net and you don't get anything back at all.
