Health insurance for pregnancy
Ramsay Health Care has contracts with all major health funds, minimising out of pocket expenses for members.
There are many and varied health fund products; therefore, we recommend you contact your health fund prior to your admission to ensure that you and your baby are covered for admission to John Flynn Private Hospital.
Note: If you only have singles or couple’s health insurance cover at the time of your delivery, it is most likely that your baby will not be covered by your health fund if an admission to the Special Care Nursery is required. Admission of a baby can be very expensive, and we therefore highly recommend that you upgrade to family cover early in your pregnancy. Some health funds require that you upgrade 3 months prior to your expected date of delivery.
Please note that if you are having a multiple birth (e.g. twins or triplets) there will be a charge for any number of babies delivered greater than one, as these babies are required to be a qualified admission.
All patients will receive a letter prior to their admission to confirm that admission and out of pocket expenses to expect. If you have any concerns prior to your admission, please do not hesitate to contact one of Maternity Care Navigators on 07 5586 5628.
