Once you spend over I think $2000 out of pocket on medical expenses in a calender year, for a family, you then get a higher rebate from medicare on further claims.

I'm pretty sure that the only things that count toward the threshold are items which would normally attract a medicare rebate, so not glasses or dentist etc. for those items if you spend over a certain amount in the financial year you can claim a tax rebate with your tax return.
Confused!? Lol it's way to early for this :-)

Update ladies.. I cancelled my private scan as the hospital (RBWH) has a sonographer on level 3 they can refer you to and its 100% bulk billed.
So my 18-20 weeks scan is no longer costing us $200+ : )

My 6wk viability scan was bulk billed but only because the dr put on the referral "previous blighted ovum".
My NT & 20wk scans were done at a specialist fetal scanning place (forgotten what it's called - Sunnybank Fetal Medical centre? Dr Carmody). They were fantastic. The equipment was awesome & there were multiple screens so everyone in the room could see. They were so clear, we couldn't believe what we were seeing.
I paid $230 & $285 per scan but had hit the safety net so got the standard rebate plus 80% of the out of pocket expense back.
With my first pregnancy my viability scan was $150 & repeat viability scan 7 days later was $110.
Guttered I won't be able to go back to Dr Carmody for my scans this pregnancy.

In vic the dating scan is bulk billed and through public hospital 18 to 20 wk scan is also free. The nt isn't but I think it's about 120.
