im 19 wks pregnant with twins and going public through king edward hospital. ive heard that you can elect to be private in a publc hospital there but i am not sure what that would actually entitle you to in this situation.
anyone done this or have any knowledge of what benefits you would receive?

Maybe you could be entitled to having a private room? No out of pocket hospital fees, just your ob fee.
You'd feel secure delivering at kemh they have the best facilities.
I found this, might help.

you can elect for the dr that you want and the money your PHI pays goes back into the hospital, We always elect to go private at PMH our daughter gets the top drs anyway because of how she is but we still use our PHI as it means they get extra money and beleive me the Womens and childrens health service ( KEMH and PMH ) need it. They are both great hospitals if you have PHI then you may as well use it you get to pick your dr and the hospital get more money the hospital that saves so many babies lives and trust me if you kid is ever sick you will be thankful for all the money that goes into PMH and KEHM
