    Specialists gap will rise to $100? I don't understand, all the specialists we have seen in the last 10 years have been $250+ a consult. DH saw an ENT about 6 months ago who had a 5 min chat to him and stuck a long wiggly light up his nose for 2 mins and charged him $380. $120 was for the light He got back I think $150?? well over the $100 gap.

    I think meant as a Co payment in public system.

    I haven't heard anything about specialist or clinics in the public system. I am also concerned about a Co payment on them as my dh and the kids all see them regularly. At times dd has seen 3 a week for therapies.

    We are earn 1k over the cc limit so it will be a killer for us.

    The childcare cost and availability is another glass ceiling for women to get back to work and further their career.

    It is very inequitable and another factor in making the rich richer and poor poorer.

    We are a very lucky household with a high income which means that we can absorb the cost of 1 or 2 children in childcare full time.
    So while we are already in a good position we get the chance to keep getting ahead in our careers, salaries and superannuation when others have to stay home.
    It just is not fair.

    That's how I interpreted it as well. I guess a public specialist that bulk bills will now cost $100 per appointment.
    Private specialists will probably go up another $100 as well. Our paed will be $475/session.

    Even Howard has stated that restricting the ftb's is a mistake.

    Is it possible that the FTB restrictions were part of negotiations and never meant to pass? Like let's get the focus on FTB so that the fuel excise won't draw as much attention?

    I don't know much about how politics actually work with the budget, but it's a tactic I've used since I was 16.

    I just went to the doctor. I had to book a double appointment for a mental health plan. I had to choose that over buying fresh food for the week. Thank god my doctor bulk billed and I didn't have to pay a cent. This is the Australia I want to live in and am mourning for.

    Too me the ft is the smallest of all the bigger issues.
    The new start and Medicare are way bigger problem.

    If dd loses her job how am I suppose find a 2k a month for her rent and 600 a month for food and her other bills on top of my own.
