I just had my bloods this morning and it was bulk billed - even came with a free tea and biscuit after I nearly passed out.

Hi I am in Melbourne and though the blood test is bulk billed, it gets sent away to VCGS who will send you an invoice for $110. I am pretty sure this applies to everyone in Melbourne anyway. You do get about $30 back from Medicare I think...possibly a bit more.
I had no idea about this and so was surprised when I got it!!

I was just curious.. You'd think these tests should be covered by the government.. It's abit silly really!?
Thanks for letting me know :-)

It's because VCGS is a privately funded organization as far as I'm aware and also the nuchal test is not compulsory. I think it might be free of you are high risk.
