If you rely on individuals to monitor - it will eventually fail. Maybe also this is a reflection of the State I am in.

    If there is no secret in the cost why is the op asking?
    Why is it no one can quite figure out 'what the gap is going to be?' If it is so transparent - but it is not is it..... I will bow out of this now as obviously I'm a little too controversial ......

    Ps I refuse to work privately
    I guess that is your opinion. I'm sorry you have such a poor view of health care based on wherever it is you work. It must make doing your job so much harder.

    If the OP call the surgeons rooms they will tell her the out of pockets costs for him/her they will also inform her who the anaesthetist is so she can do the same thing. Then a phone call to the hospital billing department will explain the rest.

    Maybe the OP is asking to gain a rough idea.
    @foggy sorry to derail your thread, I hope everything gets sorted out soon.
