I am having my first child on the gold coast and will be giving birth at Pindara? Does anyone have experience with that hospital?
I was very much tossing up between public (tweed heads hospital) and private even though we have PHI. I am currently living in Tasmania but will be relocating back to the gold coast at around 35 weeks. Therefore I will only have to have Private care for a maximum of 7 weeks and the ob I had been referred too told me I would have to pay $700 in administration fees, which I thought was ludacrous, I contacted another ob that had been recommended to me, and he is waving the charge due to the fact that all my tests will have been completed and I will have all the tests results.. Also I was not able to claim any of the $700 back. I wouldnt have had a problem paying it if it were for the medical aspect but not for administration costs!
