Hi ladies, not sure if this has been discussed before here, but Im just wondering if everyone that has booked at NSP had to pay the $250 booking fee.
Apparently this is non refundable and does not go towards your excess or other costs at the hospital.. from what i understand it is just to secure the booking and to pay for wifi etc etc. Is this fee normal for private hospitals? Just not sure how to take it. I was planning on paying for a parental suite ($500) anyway but with this fee on top it just seems a bit excessive, i dont have much experience with going to hospitals as iv never been sick and this is my first baby so am not sure if this is standard. It was also just a bit of a surprise as it does not state that fee anywhere on the hospitals website that i could see and I only found out about it from the package they send out to you after you book online.
Thanks for your help!
