I was out of pocket for my ob fees after medicare rebates (all up out of pocket about $2000 which included my appointments and management fee), and anaesthetist (I got a small amount back from Medicare and a small amount back from MBP). The pediatrician also cost about $300, but because bub was not admitted, he was considered an outpatient, so being over the Safety Net threshold, we got almost all of that back.

Oh and also, out of pocket for having a double room at the hospital - but that was our choice.

Crap I better look into this! I'm booked for c section and with bupa now I'm scared at all these prices. I know my fee is around $2200 paid next week! Visits are $75 but Medicare pays $50ish? I hit safety net ages ago so get more back.

So I called the ob today and what I suspected was correct the out of pockets will be as follow:
- 1700 management 500 Medicare rebate
- 2683 ob fee - no rebate and no phi claim
- 300 anaesthetic
- 300 paediatrician
plus, anything else like drugs I might need or have and scans.
My next question;
has anyone been public with all antenatal care and then been admitted as a private patient?
