    This still doesn’t address the issue of scheduled fees … which are too low! My anaesthetist bill was $1,500 for a 4+ hour operation (not unreasonable I would think for the skill in looking after my life through a serious operation). The Medicare Rebate + my private health insurance only gave me $450 back… seriously a tradie would get more than that for 4-5 hours work. Also a friend of mine is using the public system, she is having a lot of trouble with endometriosis and is living with chronic pain, waiting 2 months to see first specialist, then another 2 months to see the second specialist, then going on a wait list for surgery – all in all probably about 12 months of living in agony…. surely this can’t be right either!
