Insurance for pregnancy?

Hi everyone,

Is a Permanent Resident here need any insurance for delivering a baby?
If yes - Which is the good insurance plan?
If no- Medicare is sufficient?

Thanks in advance

If you already have access to Medicare then you can have a baby in the public hospital system without any problem.

Hi Sivaranjani,

Most private health insurance providers offer pregnancy insurance. But please do note that a 12-month waiting period applies for pregnancy related coverage. That means you’ll need to have arranged this atleast 3 months before falling pregnant.

Otherwise, you can rely on your Medicare alone.

Cheers!

We did private and it was significantly more expensive than going public.

Have to consider the costs of paying into the insurance itself with wait times, as well as the cost of a private ob overall and any excess for the hospital stay. But aside from cost, we were very happy with our experience with private.
