Private Patient Antenatal Assessment Service

During your pregnancy, your obstetrician may request you attend Mater Mothers’ Private Redland for an assessment.  This assessment may include undertaking routine 20 to 30 minute observation of blood pressure, temperature and pulse, recording the baby’s heart rate (CTG) and an assessment of maternal and fetal wellbeing. This visit may be for a number of reasons including suspected preterm labour, ruptured membranes or reduced fetal movements.  A visit will incur a fee which is not always covered by health funds. Payment for this fee can be made in business hours to the front reception desk of the hospital.

Private health insurance

We recommend that you talk with your private health insurer before you come to hospital, to ensure you are aware of your entitlements.  Ask them whether you are covered for neonatal, special or intensive care, and if you are required to pay an excess or co-payment. Ensure that you have clear answers to these, and any other questions you may have.

You may need to upgrade to family cover well before the expected date of delivery.  All additional or other out-of-pocket expenses, such as telephone calls, are paid before going home.

Self-insured patients

If you are a self-insured patient (paying for your hospitalisation yourself) you will need to contact Mater Mothers’ Private Redland to discuss costs and obtain a quote.  Staff are available to discuss costs with you between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm weekdays (excluding public holidays).  Call 1800 628 374 to speak to a staff member.

Cost estimates are based on the information available at the time and are subject to change if any aspect of your stay changes due to medical necessity (e.g. if complications arise).
