I thought you could not have an epidural in a Birth Centre?
Moot point I guess but the whole thing does not make sense.

Yes most hospitals transfer you out of birth suite and into the regular labour ward if you need to have an epi or c-section.

Can you post the website of the hospital you're talking about. Maybe they just mean that $1500 is the cost for the hospital (though no charge to you) I'm very confused by all this if no one has elected private patient in public hospital then there is no charges billed to a patient - ever.

What if, hypothetically, you were a public patient in a public hospital going through the midwife clinic. Then right before the birth they discovered you had a complication and you were not happy with the options for OBs that they gave you. You could request a private OB attend the birth at the last minute and you'd be charged for that but still remain a public patient in the public hospital. If you didn't use your insurance at all that would incur a one off fee from the OB.
