Wesley Fetal Medicine Unit and Sunnybank Fetal Medicine Unit are both private specialist ultrasound practices. If you wish to claim through Medicare you will need a referral either from your GP or Obstetrician/Gynecologist. Please remember to bring this referral with you to your appointment.
Payment is due on the day of the scan and most patients will be eligible for Medicare rebate. We accept all major credit cards (not AMEX or Diners), EFTPOS and cash. We do not accept cheques.
If you have provided Medicare with your bank account details once you have paid your account we can forward your claim directly to Medicare. Your rebate should then appear in your bank account in approximately one week. If you do not have a refund after 7 working days please contact Medicare on the number on the reverse of your Medicare card.
A cancellation fee of $50 applies to all patients who cancel within 24 hours of their appointment or fail to attend for their appointment.
