    Thanks Rani.

    Does this mean, based on the charges you quoted, that if I registered as a public patient and had a normal delivery, then I decided to change to a private room, I could end up paying:

    $4,800 for a normal delivery plus
    $9,060 for three nights in a private room
    = $13,860?

    I am sure there would be extras if I needed an epidural or other types of medical intervention during delivery, but the point is that depending on availability of rooms, I could treat myself to a private room if the medical costs accrued during delivery are not too high. This would be a pretty good deal... Am I missing something?

    I know a couple of people who have stayed in a private room and their final bill have been close to $60K. That's for a c-section. Not sure what we're missing. Maybe Dr's fees, nursery, Paediatrician?

    Well, 60K would certainly be a different story to 13K! If anybody has any experiences changing to a private room after being in a general ward at the QM I would love to hear about it -- especially if anyone knows for sure whether this is actually possible, and if so what actual charges are accrued.

    Do someone have a reply at this question? I have same problem.....
