    Sort of. I live 30 minutes from the Gold Coast and about the same from Brisbane. I had my CS at Sunnybank Private Hospital.

    We were out of pocket about $2.5k all up (first OB visit to birth) for the c-section birth of my daughter.

    Default Priviate Health Insurance (HBA) and Elective C-Section

    I know that HBA covers C-section for medical reasons. Do anybody know if HBA covers ELECTIVE C-Section? My cover with HBA is Hospital Saver Plus-Level 3.
    Thanks.
