Does anyone know how much are the delivery charges if I am going to Kandang Kerbau Hospital private suite? Planning to take A1.. Checked the website, but the figures are everywhere..
Heard from an acquaintance that for Kandang Kerbau Hospital PS, A1 ward have to pay about $3000? Coz some people are saying that you only have to pay about 1.5k
Am confused.. any kind souls can advice?
it will be the best that you call and check with them as i think even who your gynae is, affects...
I delivered under Kandang Kerbau Hospital TPS, A1 ward in April. Natural with epidural. Total bill was about $5k but there was a claimable amount of $1k plus. So in the end, I paid about $3k plus.
actually it totally depends on how long is yr labour too, compare to someone w a long labour, mine was spent about 4-5 only, n i chose c class so my bill after medisave claim was a 1k plus, n then they even return e costs for my clinic chk ups n we paid less than 800 bucks... i tink maybe yrs will b about 3-5 k depending on the labour period, complications, hospital stay n baby's condition too..
I'm also planning to deliver @ Kandang Kerbau Hospital Private suite A1 i was told it's between 3-5k depending on the length of the labour and if you take epi.
I just delivered at Kandang Kerbau Hospital 3 weeks ago. I went to Clinic B for normal gynea checkups but booked A1 & premier single delivery room (with No medical students). You need not go to private suite to book the top A1 & delivery suite rooms. I think clinic B service is better than private suite.
Had to pay a deposit of $3800. You can use max $1800 from medisave account to pay but only after delivery - the deposit will have to be paid in cash/cheq etc.
I have not got the total bill yet but expect it to be about $5K. You can go to admissions at Kandang Kerbau Hospital and enquire.
a friend who delivered in earli march paid a total of 4.2k for premier package A1 ward.
however there's an adjustmentin the package from 1st april onwards.
you may wish to check with them the package again or you can email them to get them to send you the package.
what i have here is that the deposit needed will be 2330 if you are using medisave. and est bill size for premier package A1 ward at 90percentile is about 4230.

i see my gynae for both my pregnancies at TPS too.
delivered my 1st child last year at March.
took A1 ward too..
total bill for mine was about 4.6k.
natural with epidural (induction)
my 2nd child this year Feb, took A1 ward again.
total bill for mine was 4.2K.
natural with epi (no induction)
btw, 1.8k medisave deduction is included in my total bill already =)
Your 4.2k refers to the total bill for delivery/A1 warding/epidural ... everything from the time you admitted till discharged right?
When you say 1.8k medisave deduction "included in total bill already", do you mean net net, you paid only 2.4k in cash? Did you not get medisave deduction for your pre-delivery charges too?
Please pardon my ignorance and thanks for your assistance!!
anyone went for c-section can let me know the delivery charges??
there's a deposit to be paid when you book the bed.. but the unused/ balance portion will be refunded...
i delivered at Kandang Kerbau Hospital last dec.. took B1 n gynae was Dr John Tee @ TPS also.. paid $1280 deposit.. got everything back.. cuz i overstayed so i can BF dear daughter.. total stay the 2 days + over stay 2 days.. whole bill claim from medisave..
is the taking the package more expensive than not ?
seems that the package is more expensive...and Kandang Kerbau Hospital A1 costs much more than places like Mt A and Thomson Medical Center rite?
ermmm.. in Kandang Kerbau Hospital TPS, there is no package system ...
Anyway i just gave birth in May.. i pay $1500 deposit....i gave birth natural with no epidural.. Got back $760.. deduction of $1500 from medisave so total i pay about $2500...
