Definitely double check with your oby. Do they charge a high management fee as well or is this figure the total charge? Mine had a fee of $1500 due by 20weeks
For me (with bupa) I was out of pocket A LOT. They did not cover drugs/pain mgmt, (300) husband boarding, ($500) anaethsetist (OOP $500) paed OOP ($500) management fee (OOP about $3000)
I'm with NIB and just checked into it on Friday.
They cover my epi/c-section etc but also covers if bub needs to go to special care nursery. Apparently basically everything after I step foot in hospital.
With delivery fee, my obs charged $5200, I got $275 back from Medicare and nothing from my PHI.
Same, I was with BUPA and the OOP for the hospital bill is a joke!
I paid $900 for the epi and got around $60 back :-/
Does anyone know if you can go public but access your phi for a private room? Not overly bothered by a private room but just wondering because I have private cover...
I paid $1780 to my OB at 20 weeks and never had any other fees with hum (besides my appointments)?? What other fees are you ladies paying? $5000 is so excessive...
I was out about 1700 at 20 weeks and that was it.
No birth or anaesthetist or paed bills
