This is a discussion on Hospital Bills - Elective Caesarean within the Singapore Obstetricians and Gynaecologists forum, part of the Pregnancy Forum category; I have searched the forum, but could not find any information on the cash portion payable for elective caesarean birth ...
I have searched the forum, but could not find any information on the cash portion payable for elective caesarean birth (with epidural / spinal).
Can anyone please share? I am looking for any information available based on the following questions:
1. Cash portion payable after medisave (includes hospital bills for the lil one)
2. How many beds are you staying?
3. Did you claim the S$450 medisave refund for pre-natal consultation through hospital?
I have checked with my gynae and he mentioned the cash portion will not be more than 2k. I just want to know if anyone had paid lesser or more, so I could prepare for the upcoming delivery...
Thanks in advance to those who are willing to share.
I delivered at Mount A ,Oct 2009,normal delivery followed by emergency c-sect,epidural, single bedded, 4 days, total bill including baby $7k plus, cash portion i remember about 3k. The rest medisave.
Pre-natal medisave refund claimed.
My 1st c-sect w epidural was emergency in Nov 04. Paid 3K+ in cash & 3K+ for medisave. Stayed 4 days 3 nites in 2 bedded in Thomson Medical Center. Yes, $450 was claimed too.
I did not realise that my bill was quite cheap until i saw the postings here.
Is it that Mt A is cheaper then Thomson medical? Either that or my gynae charges are cheap?He only charged me for c-sect even though i was in labour ward for like 9hrs, then he came to see me and advised me to do c-sect.
At first i was alos very worried cos i scared the hospital bill coime up to a lot, esp with emergency c-sect cos before delivery a lot of perople say will get charged for both but for my case, no lei.
Actually 3rd day oredi gynae say can discharge but cos dear daughter got jaundice and still need treatment, we stayed another day cos want her to go home together with us.
Dear hubby like enjoying hotel stay cos the food and room very nice!
i'm going to deliver in early august... can mummy me explain to me wats the 450 claim through cpf? is this for the consultation fee for the pregnancy routine check up?
i never know that we can claim the check up consultation fee through medisave..
Yeah.. youre very lucky indeed!!!!.. I heard my doctor said if i try for normal, and end up baby cant come out (my first was caesarean).. chances are my bills in cash will be about 4k..
My gyane delivers in Thomson, not sure if that will cost my bill to reduce a bit.. Really hope so..

Oh, i thought it was a myth that you get charged for both cos i didn't. So it depends on whether the gynae choose to charge or not? But the hospital side also like never charge lei. I was in labour ward from 8.40pm till 6.30am the next day before my c-sect. Think they only charge me for the c-sect (operation theatre)
Looks like i should definitely go back my gynae for my 2nd one when it comes along.
I had an elective GA csect on nov 09 at Mount.A 4 bedded. I paid $1k deposit upon admission and after deduct everything from my medisave, they refund me $900 in cheque after 1-2 weeks.
For me, I deliver at KK, elective c-sec. stay at 4-bedded ward. Stay for 3d2n, total bill is around $4200, medisave deduct $3500, CASH paid around $712. Upfront we made a cash pre-payment of $1482, then receive a cheque refund of $770.
anyone deliver at Mt E? how is the charges?
