Yes, but hospital fees can be more than people realise. Then there can be a cost for using an OR, for any other staff that attend such as anaesthesiologist, and any tests that are run. Tests alone can be upwards if $1000. On top of that, you have medications, some of which are hugely expensive. We don't get to see the exact breakdown or cost when we go public, but it is a lot. I had to get a cast removed in Canada and it cost
$1000. Just for that. My heart surgeon told us that the OR fee alone was $10k- I was private but my mum was wondering. I just think it's a really bad idea, especially because we have a great medical system here which should have no impact on the success of the pregnancy.
