My 7mo has just been diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia and we have to visit a major hospital to get a brace custom made. I am curious as to whether we will be out of pocket or is the brace covered by Medicare? TIA
PS We aren't in a private fund.

I have never paid for a brace. We have had 2 kids treated in public hospitals in both Vic & NSW and we did not have to pay. I've lost count of how many we would have been given, maybe 10 all up?
