Hi...I am on private insurance and dont have medicare (as on 457 visa) and in 16th week of preg.
I am covered by private insuranceas have passed 1 year waiting period. I planned to go to Royal women's hospital but I got to know from Royal women's, Melbourne that
they will treat me as international patient and will not give any 'medicare/item code' for
pre-natal visits (approx $3000 for 10 visits) and delivery process later.
This means I cannot claim anything from private insurance as they would require item codes to reimburse medicare scheduled fees.
Please suggest what should be the best cost effective option now.

This is a tough one. Have you tried speaking to your insurance provider to see what can be done at their end?
It may be that simply providing a receipt for any payment will be enough. Would the hospital provide the codes (even though they don't go through Medicare) so that you can inform your insurance company?
