Just looking for some help .... can someone please outline what a “private patient in public hospital” is?
I have private cover, but took out obstetrics cover 19 April 2012, so wouldn’t be able to use that until 19 April 2013.
We are going to start TTC in August and if we were lucky enough to conceive straight away the baby would be due mid to late April so it would be cutting it a bit fine to give birth in a private hospital.
So what I’m wondering is would we be able to have a private obstetrician for our appointments (and pay whatever the gap is) and then give birth in a public hospital? Is that how “private patient in public hospital” works?
Thanks for any help!
