Medical screening 189 visa - Mental health issue Bipolar

hey guys im new to this forum.
me and my wife just went through the medical tests. my question is regarding what impact will bipolar affective disorder have on our visa grant.

My wife has Bipolar-disorder and has been on medication for the past 5 years. she is very stable and functions normally. will we be able to pass the medical screening?
she has never been hospitalized and takes mild dosage of the named medication tegretol, serequel and cipralex.
she is not a threat to herself or anyone else. however i wanted the forum members opinions and experience in this matter.
anyone know the cost impact that DIBP or the MOC will be looking at and if this condition is likely to exceed the AUD40000 threshold within 5 years

i am looking for some honest and prompt advise to help me.
