Apologies as this has no doubt been asked before, but I can't find anything recent on the Medicare Safety Net and Obstetrician Fees. Or at least, I can't understand the govt website re:EMSN and Obstetrician fees.
I have met the threshold earlier this year (thanks IVF!) and will be paying my 20 week obstetrician fees later this month (approx $3900).
Does anyone know if any rebates apply to this fee?
Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure you don't get more back even if you've reach the safety net for that particular item, sorry 😔

Google Extended medicare safety net. You do get some back but its capped (the 80% oop doesnt count), from memory it may only be $400.

Actually I just checked and I got back an extra $225 when I paid pregnancy management fee thanks to the safety net 😊

I just found thag the general rebate is $275 + the EMSN of $219 = $494. Everyone that pays the fee reaches the SN right away and gets the max amount.
Eta-sorry this was 2014 amounts. I don't think they would be too different though.

Helpful! I'm in exactly the same boat.
Hi SJ565, who'd have thought we would end up here, 20 weeks preg! I remember when we cycled together. Well done to you, nearly halfway through!
