Im currently comparing health funds to switch from NIB where we pay far too much for our cover and it appears most funds are considerably cheaper for our level of cover. We currently have top cover however one thing NIB doesn't cover is a postnatal hotel stay with the partnering private hospital which I love the idea of for baby number 2.
Is anyone familar with whether the fund they are with covers a postnatal hotel stay (if your private hospital has the program in place)? And if so which fund? I have searched and searched so I can just compare but have found no information. I thought I would ask here before I ring around to different funds and spend forever on the phone!

If you have a hospital in mind perhaps you could research their program and ask them which funds cover it?

Im with ahm and mine did cover it.
It should be included in your hospital stay costs though as its oart of your hospital stay

Sorry to derail, but just wondering what the appeal is of a post-birth hotel stay? Don't you just want to go home?

I'm with HIF and mine covers it fully for two nights, but only at certain hotels IF I go to certain hospitals.
The hospital near us is covered, and the hotel near it too... I'll more than likely just want to go home though.

If I was public then yes I prefer to go straight home but in private with a private room/ hotel then I prefer to spend a few nights away from home.
If at home I won't "rest" I'll be up and doing things
I will get all meals and snacks hand delivered to me

The hotel idea is great.
Its a good transition between hospital with midwives and home and independent.
Theres a midwife there but doesnt come unless requested.
