If you have a scan at a private place it doesn't matter what your risk is, you don't get it all back because part of the cost is paying for the fact that it's private - part of the payment goes toward paying staff etc.
If you have a scan in a public place, it'll be bulk billed. I am low risk but because my scan was at a public hospital, it was completely covered.

Actually now that I think about it when I got medicare rebate last time it may have been for seeing the Ob for the test results straight after the scan. Public is the way to go though if you want to save money but I've heard from women at other public hospitals that it's not routinely offered if you're under 35 so in that case you'd have to get it done privately anyway. I guess just shop around.

Scans for NT are $211 with about a $70 Medicare rebate and bloods are free as long as you sign the form for medicare. This is Adelaide/ mt Barker.

Unfortunately our public hospital here doesn't provide scans before 20 weeks even though I'm in their midwife-care program. If you want a scan before 20 weeks you have to get it privately. So I called around and found somewhere that does it for $150 - much better than $360 at the first place!
