I think you need to be careful about the referral. I'm going public and I had to pay for 13 weeks and 20 weeks ultrasound.
Depends where you go for it. I'm going private but got my dr to give me the referral and it was free, so was the 20 week. Yeah we'll my first ultrasound was free but I did call another place that was gunna cost me just to find out how many weeks I was then I had bleeding so went somewhere else and it was free so. If its just a dating scan then it is usually free if its the NT downs test then it costs as its your choice if u want it.coleslandlord.com/components/hindu/6092-are-sagittariuss-and.php

I didn't have the NT as it wouldn't change anything in my eyes if the results were bad, would just give me another thing to stress about before I would need to. In sa depends on the hospital. Bensons will give you any scan after the 3rd free but you pay for the first 3 scans tho and they are cheaper then dr jones and partners anyways. I'm in Brisbane and went public.
I paid for all my ultra sounds but you get most of it back. I am going private with my pregnancy, but I went to the local radiology place Mackay, QLD for all my scans and it was all bulk billed. My dating scan and 20 week scan were bulk billed but the 12 week scan I had to pay but still got a Medicare rebate for.
I think it depends what age u are too Over 30 u can get it done free at hospital this is in the public system. I had to pay for the 12 wk scan both times. Last preg the 20wk was bull billed bit now they don't do that anymore and I have to pay. Bulk bill please" Apparantly if the gp requests it you get bulk billed, otherwise you have to pay it. Mine is a whole different story - they were supposed to bulk bill me and they've refused so we are in the middle of trying to work it out at the moment.

Most places will not bulk bill for an NT scan as it is optional. My NT ultrasound was bulk billed unsure I think it might have something to do with the radiology practice as well, because whenever I've had anything done through Radiology SA it's always been bulk billed, yet with Bensons I always get charged.
I am not sure how it works as I have had 3 diff scenarios with 3 diff pregnancies! DS - bulk billed as referred thru the RBH hospital and done on site. DD1- paid for by me.
12 week ultrasound bulk billed??
This pregnancy did shared care between my GP and the hospital and my GP made the referrals DD2- bulk billed by my different GP now living on the sunshine coast and my GP offered to find me an xray clinic that bulk billed So it may have something to do with where the referral comes from and which clinic you use??? Oh - and none of mine were high risk pregnancies. I did need extra scans for my last one as I had partial placenta previa, but nothing major.
I havent had my NT scan yet, but had a dating scan a few weeks ago. I'm doing shared care through my GP so she sent me to the place that bulk bills for shared care, so I assume that my NT scan will be bulk billed as well. From what I understand, if the GP requests the scan to be bulk billed, then it should be. I wondered this too When i went for my scans. I got the referal from my GP.. Then i had a midwife appointment and i was coming up to my 20 week scan. I went for the scan and i went to pay.. So maybe thats why?

If you are in NSW, and under 30 then you have to pay as you are not "high risk" for an NT scan, otherwise over 30's can be bulk billed. My dr, told me that I would have to pay as it is an "optional" scan! I think my GP mentioned early in my pregnancy that you only get 2 scans bulk billed, so not to worry with a dating scan as my periods were so regular. Ended up having an early scan due to spotting which was bulk billed but paid for my NT.
I have the option of getting my 19wk scan bulk billed but ive decided to go to a private place and pay. You end up getting some of it back on medicare anyway. I'm not that sure what the go is though, you'd have to ask a doctor or scan place.
