    I think this is what she was referring to. She said that they cover 2000 and then the gap of 2863 meant the ob was charging nearly 5000 delivery fee which she found to be excessive and really high

    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

    No the management fee is separate to this fee, the management fee is 1700 (due by 20 weeks) and then this is 2863 (due by 30 weeks) it's so confusing

    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.

    So your out of pocket delivery was nearly 5000? It's such a minefield of not knowing I'm thinking its easier to just go public again and not worry about getting a massive set of unexpected bills.

    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
