No problems! I just don't want you getting here and getting the shock of your life having to pay thousands in medical fees!

Even when women have private health insurance in Australia they have to pay a lot of money sometimes!

Yeah - unemployment is high and keeps on rising in Australia!

World wide medical insurance does not mean that they will cover everything. Pregnancy and birth is one thing that private insurance never covers 100% of.

My cousin has had the highest level of private insurance since she was 18 and she had a baby recently (31 years old) and they were still out of pocket about $3,000.

Hmm. I already checked with my insurance about this and they confirmed that maternity is covered and they gave me list of providers in Australia that are covered.
The insurance basically said that maternity is covered 100% upto ~ 16k . Does this cover delivery in private hospitals in Australia?
I am talking about c section since it will be the more expensive procedure
I think I will contact the hospital too to get confirmation.

Maternity can be covered but not 100% covered.

Australian's here with private health insurance will never have to nothing there is always out of pocket expenses.

The only free birth in Australia for Australian's is through the public health system.

The hospital probably can't confirm because each insurance has different levels they cover ie. Some are 70%, some are 80%. That is how it works here.

C sections are more expensive and scheduled c sections can only be done private as public will only do it for emergency or high risk pregnancy.

Not sure how much a birth would cost best to check. There would also be check ups once she got here too.

quick search, but lets make it 10k, top 16k now

According to Medibank Private figures, in 2009-2010 the average total bill for giving birth to a baby in a private hospital was $7,461. This sum just covered the medical costs of the birth part of the whole having-a-baby process. The doctor visits and antenatal testing throughout pregnancy make up a whole separate amount.

It all depends on how long you stay in hospital and if there are any complications.

I am interested to know how much the hospital tells you it is.

I would put those figures higher because that would be for a normal birth. A c section will cost more + additional costs over the years.

Also I think Medicare will cover some of the costs too that aren't submitted to private health insurers.

OP - I will see if my cousin remembers her cost.
