    Question 13 week down syndrome scanWestern Australia

    ok mummies of WA, AUS

    I wanted to have my scan for D/S at 12 weeks.
    I've been informed that its not covered by medicare and would incur a $300 out of pocket expense. Anyone else had this?!

    I think that's normal unless you're high risk.

    Yes, but you get a fair bit back from Medicare.
    You pay the full cost, the scan place transmits to Medicare, the refund hits your bank account the next day.

    I had my D/S with my oldest 5 years ago and I don't remember paying anything at all.
