So the total for you should be $18 per 6 months plus any GP expenses, my GP charges me $17 per visit…………hardly a Kings ransom!

How come the GP only charges you $17 per visit?

PHO = Primary Health Organisation...............or something like that.

I believe the way some GP's are funded now enables them to have more money given by the government for each patient visit, hence the lower fees........I think!
