Just to clarify this issue to those not from Australia. The patient was charged $225, but was FULLY reimbursed (if I read it right) by the government (ie it was effectually free to the patient, the rest of the population paid for it in tax). I pay a few thousand a year in medical taxes for our Medicare system (which I love). I personally am fine with a sonographer charging the govt (ie us) and making some use for my benefit in the long run, out of the taxes I pay.whyRwehere wrote:I agree, that it is good of her to be interested and pursue learning about the test. BUT, without experience behind her, she is charging too early. Can I just say that the doctor who saw my husband and performed the doppler, did it for free.
