Abstract

We write in reply to the letter ‘Setting the Record Straight on Obstetric Gaps’.2 We thank the author for his reply to our previously published short commentary ‘Changes in out‐of‐pocket charges associated with obstetric care provided under Medicare in Australia’ (ANZJOG 2018; 58; 362–365). Overwhelmingly what ‘Setting the Record Straight on Obstetric Gaps’ highlights is the lack of transparency regarding the setting of fees that are charged to women, and the influence of ministerial decisions and lobbying on the fees that are paid from the woman's purse at the end of a private specialist consultation.
