hi guys, my wife is 1 month pregnant. Ask ko lang if my idea kayo if how much ang prenatal checkup? hindi kasi covered ng healthcard namin. TIA
Today I found out I'm 2 Mos preggy and was just granted PR today also. Ied ko is jan 15, edd ko is Feb 24. Di ako makapagdecide kung after Kong Mag initial entry sa Sept eh uuwi ako dito sa pinas para manganak or sa oz na ako manganganak tas Uwi ng pinas. Ano kaya mas magandang option?
@jengrata thanks for the info. Ang worry ko kasi eh ung cost din of giving birth sa oz. Sabi ng agent ko libre daw akong manganak dun. Naconfuse ako sa backreading ko. Covered ba ng medicare ang childbirth, maternity check ups sa bagong saltang PR?
How bad is giving birth in a public hospital that one would choose to pay for a private hospital? Anyone who's had an experience?
How bad is giving birth in a public hospital that one would choose to pay for a private hospital? Anyone who's had an experience?The word "bad" is really not applicable. Maganda ang mga public hospitals sa Au in terms of doctors and services, according to my research. Sabi ng bestfriend ko na kapapanganak lng sa Melbourne recently, facilities at waiting period lang ang difference. Sa public, shared ang room, open ward. Sa private, you can choose your own room. Ang nagpapaanak both public and private ay midwife. But i think you can ask for personal OB sa private kung maganda tlga ang insurance coverage mo. In terms of waiting period, dahil sa maraming pumupunta sa public shempre napupuno ang facilities at fully booked ang doctors. Sa private, makakapili ka ng doctors. Sa tingin ko people are choosing private over public dahil sa privacy, facility, urgent need and convenience.
@jengrata CS kasi ang firstborn ko so most probably CS din ang susunod ko. Wala pa naman pero just imagining the scenario. Mukhang mas convenient ang private kung ganun. Thanks for the story :)Ano bang mga insurance madalas gamitin pag kasama ang pregnancy and giving birth costs?
In essence, private insurance is for non-PRs, since they are not covered by Medicare. But since the government imposes tax to your income if you do not have a private insurance, it will be more beneficial for you if you had one. Kakaltasan ka rin nila kung wala kang private insurance. Pero ang tanong: Bakyyeet? Bakit ka kakaltasan kung wala kang private insurance? edi parang binayaran mo na rin yung medicare benefits mo? huh? ang gulo haha!Pakilahad sa husgadong ito ang tunay na mangyayari. :D
Ah tlga may "extra" tax para sa walang insurance? Ang alam ko lang tax deductible ang private insurance. So yung binabayad mo eh ikakaltas din sa tax, parang offset lng din.
