    Default Cost to get tubes checked for blockage?

    Hi
    I am just wondering what the cost is to get your tubes checked for any blockage?
    I live in Qld but my private insurance (for IVF) doesn't kick in until July. I want to get them checked now though as I will be 40 in April (sooner the better in my case).
    Does basic private insurance cover this procedure or would it fall under fertility treatment (I am with medibank). Is it along wait through the public sector, I am guessing it is?!!
    Thanks

    Default Cost to get tubes checked for blockage?

    Hi storm girl. I have no experience with IVF. But I had a HSG X-ray last month to check for blockages, is this what you mean? It cost me $400 at QLD X-ray, and she said you get $150 back on Medicare

    I had a hycosy 2 years ago to check my tubes (apparently less uncomfortable than hsg) and it cost $350. Got some back from Medicare. It was done at a women's u/s centre.
    My PHI didn't cover it.

    Thanks.
    Who gave you a referral for those procedures?? Was it a GP or FS?

    I can't remember the exact cost of the hycosy- although I think it was close to $500. We got some money back from medicare.
    But you can get a referral through your gp. I did. You can also just call up a place where they are done and ask about the cost.

    Thanks for your replies.
    Do you know if you can go through the public system for this or is the wait too long (which I am guessing it would be).
    Also, if there are blockages what is the cost involved to fix this, would it be a laparscopy that I would need?
    I am feeling very disheartened at the moment

    You can get a referral from your FS or gp, it's usually a standard test before starting Ivf. I got the referral and booked in 2 weeks later, at my local scan place. It should be pretty fast to organise. Mine cost bout $400 but I got bout $150 back.
