    Hi Leanne,

    Unfortunately you need to be under private insurance for min 12 months before you are covered for private hospital. But you can check with a few private health companies as there may be a loophole when you are moving from OS.

    You can try: www.hcf.com.au or www.medibankprivate.com.au

    Not too sure on the hospitals as we are also moving next month to the Gold Coast. There is also Gold Coast Hospital .

    I have been told Pindara Private Hospital is good.

    Good Luck with it all.

    Cheers Shadi

    The Southport hospital is excellent. My niece was born there. And we went there for a broken rib when I was there last at Christmas 2 years ago.

    I'd highly recommend it!

    Cheers
