      I found an article from 2005 which seems to indicate it costs $1700 then (at the bottom of the article). That is the only reference for cost I could find. http://www.australiandoctor.com.au/news/4d/0c030d4d.asp At the bottom of the page.

      As to how much a person actually pays or what the cost is now, no clue. Can Medicare not tell you the average cost, if there is a charge to pay? I know when I've had private treatment or had to pay and claim on insurance (UK and overseas) I've always asked the company providing the cover, the hospital or the Doctor's secretary and they have been able to tell me price of medical exam/treatment etc.

      I've had 4 this year 3 in public and one in private - public cost nothing the private cost me admit fee to Flinders Private $200. Doctor and anaesthetist bulk billed so it cost nothing.
      There are two lasting bequests that we can hope to give our children - one of those is roots: the other is wings!
