Re: Financial Costs

I agree that it is unfair and usually as an in-patient scans are covered by health funds, I thought.

Re: Financial Costs

For me PETs and MRIs which I have had ,not as an in-patient, are not refundable through Medicare or my health fund. I was told that it is different if you are in hospital.Six years my husband was in hospital for 2 weeks and had lots of tests,scans etc, and the health fund paid all.

Re: Financial Costs

Hi Silly, is it possible to be booked in as a day patient for the scans etc. If the machine is part of the hospital group, should be do- able. Andrew
