Thanks so much in advance for your help.
I've recently conceived through ivf, I'm 5 weeks. I'm very lost regarding upcoming decisions if we could go through the public system or private. I do not have private health insurance for maternity.. I'm with NIB basics but it's a 12 month wait for maternity. We have already paid a crap load of money already in ivf, so really we don't mind spending more. All I know is that we will pay for a great obs and I have one in mind at Mercy, Victoria.
My questions are:
Can I choose a private obs and birth in public?
There is a chance I'm carrying twins (I transferred two embryos), if it's a high risk pregnancy will you receive better care through private?
Do any health funds offer a no or short wait period?
Approx what out of pocket cost would you expect to pay going private without private health insurance?
Thank you soooooo much!!
