GP house calls more expensive
Doctors' fees for evening calls between 6 and 9 p.m. will be 22% up, totalling almost 41 euros as from Saturday.
After 9 p.m. the difference totals 25%, which makes a fee of more than 70 euros. This is 14 euros up on the present fee.
House visits on weekend days or bank holidays will cost 5 euros more and will total 46 euros.
If you still have the energy to go to the doctor's yourself, you will also have to pay a bit more, but the difference will be smaller.
