I have a US itunes and Australian account, same music is about 20% cheaper from US account with current exchange rates.
on the plus side, my overnight sleep study was around $800, of which medicare paid $500. I've read they are a lot more elsewhere.
My overnight sleep study was $450 for the first one and the second one, to confirm settings, was $250. I complained loudly about the price and bingo a discount of $200. Because sleep apnea is the new "black" in health, the industry seems to think that it is a money making exercise. Speak up, loudly, and watch the difference in attitude. And take your concerns to the relevant consumer department in your state and the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia. The more complaints the better it may get for the consumer/patient.
My two sleep studies were bulk billed. Can't see why yours weren't.
