Went to See GP, Then Realised She Has Changed to Be Private Billing

I was ill the other day and decided to see my GP who I have not seen for a while. I have made a booking few days prior going in to see my GP.
Few days later after seeing my GP, I was walking out of the clinic but heard receptionist called out my name. It appears that my GP does not do bulk billing anymore, and I had to pay $60 for the consultation. I was advised that I could claim $37.50 from Medicare.
But still….I felt like I should be informed earlier when I made the booking.
Has anyone come across the same experience?
I kind of like my GP…now I am not sure if I should continue seeing her in the future due to the extra cost incurred.
