When admitted, i pay a deposit of 1K (C-section & 4bedded).. then on the day of discharged when settle the bill, i dont have to pay anymore and i get a refund of 500+
For the hospital charges right, you can refer to mount alvernia website.. they have a list on hw much you have to pay on the delivery option and bed option..
Mount Alvernia is a good hospital.. Nurse are good.. I tink KK the charges is not cheap olso..

Mine is about 2K.. So, i pay 1K on the day of admission. Then my doc delivery fee and baby doc fee wil be added to your bill and to be settled upon discharge. So, if your medisave have enough then i tink you will mostly get refund..

I agreed totally.
To me, i am just very unhappy with him and the machine, 4 weeks ago, i did a full scanning in Thomson, and then my baby's weight was around 1.5, then 2 weeks after i went to his clinic for regular check, then he told me it was 1.4 kg. he told me baby is not eating well, then he changed some vitamines for me. i was worried coz its been 2 weeks there was no weight gained for my baby, so i ate a lot esp the highly nutritious food . then 2 weeks after, i went for another regular check, he told me my baby was very small and may overdue, and the weight of my baby was just 1.6kg!!!!! and that time i was 35 week already. A person with common sense would know 35 weeks with 1.6 kg baby is absolutely abnormal, and something must go wrong, but he's a doctor!! I feel strange and then i asked if i could do anything to increase the nutrition, then he started to give me a lot of useless points, saying different people have different genes, some are small some are big, but 1.6 is very very small, it is considered to be dangerous as well, my friend told me her dr would recommend her to do a full scan in hospital and apply the nutrition injection if the baby is that type of size...Then i asked dr Chow are there any other solutions, he just told me to go home and wait and see..wait and see?? then i will waste another 2 week's time. it is my baby,,it is a life!!! Then i asked him, if my baby's position was correct, if the cord is surrounding the neck if yes then i prepare earlier so i can go fo C, then he said he donno, and the machine did not show as well. I am so tired of this kind of ans already, each time i tried to ask qs, i've got this kind of ans...
So the next day, i immediately went for thomson for a detailed scan and check up, guess what, my baby's weight was actually 2.4kg, he's healthy and normal, EDD still the same, no overdue. 1.6 and 2.4kg is a huge difference, that's why i really wanna change dr as well
