This is a discussion on Latest Thomson Medical Center bills within the General Pregnancy Discussion forum, part of the Pregnancy Forum category; Originally Posted by joeichen thanks for your info, urs is assist delivery with vacuum but any epi? I thought doc ...
No, I think uve misunderstood the calculations. When I was @ 32 weeks, I paid the doc delivery fee of $937.
Upon admission to give birth, I paid the $800 deposit.
The total bill for my 3D2N stay, after deducting from medisave, by right I should pay $250.25 + $235.98 cash. But we didn't have to fork out anything cos' of the $800 deposit that we've paid. They will minus off from there. Still got balance, so they will refund us the balance via cheque.
On the day of the discharge, they just explained to us the breakdown of the bill and told us that they will send us the cheque for the refund, that's all. No $ to be paid. Hope you're enlightened. =)
that time when i check with the hospital, i ask, then the girl say ya. then i re-ask, so other then the 1k i dont need to prepare any extra amt. then she ya. but what people say here and there are confusing me.....
you just delivered? can i also ask.. i saw in another thread somebody mentioned labour ward is charged by per hour. so we have to pay extra for using the labour ward? or is it already included?
precious jovier landed 26th june o9.
世上只有妈妈好。-like that dont't need papa .
recently keep feel pain. not same from before pain. think thats what they mean by contraction. now also dont know how to describe. my baby keep treat me chicken wing sia. last check doc says head down . which means the part i keep feel the 'kicks' is actually his elbow. hahas.
yep..the deposit that we pay upon admission is to offset any extra $ after the medisave deduction. most of the time, ppl dont need to pay anything more on the day of the discharge cos' the deposit is more than enuff to cover any extra.
Unless of course, there are (touch wood) complications, and you need special instrument/assisted delivery that will add on more to the charges. If not, the deposit should be enuff and you dont have to fork out any $ when ure discharged. Any balance from the deposit, they will refund back to you in cheque.
The labour ward services, I dont't think its included. Bcos from the break down of the bill, its by itself. They stated there my labour ward usage was less than 2 hours, and they charge me $77. The package that we are paying is for our ward itself plus the meals, if I'm not wrong.
Its true , to prepare more $ just to play safe. Like myself, I made sure I have extra cash just in case. In the end, no need to pay anything more. =p
get refund some more from the deposit.
My Gynae is attached to both Thomson Medical Center and MAH .. he told me that lot of his patients are complaining that Thomson Medical Center bills are hiked than before .. He told me it could be due to Thomson Medical Center is totally private now previously semi private .. mothers who delivered 2-3 years back and delivered again now find their bills to be very high ..
So I am choosing MAH for my delivery now..
Any suggestions about MAH ?
I did a post a thread here before but dont what happen to it which I list down my hospital charges in detail....
Signed up for antenatal package since baby 5wks old =$650 (medisave) but I forked out cash and they claim medisave for me so which means I actually paid double for the antenatal Ohh no i just discovered this... can somebody enlighten me this...

Dr Fees normal delivery without vaccum or epi =$1200
Grand total =$2355.96

Balance after deduction is $1005.96 cash to be paid, I paid $800 deposit, so i still need to pay $205.96 plus my baby after medisave claim was $248.94
