Unexpected huh, now we even get some refund back from our deposit, so total cash used for my labour at KKH was $1,030.73

  1. If just see total amount, mine is just 1/3 of your bill. Scary man – I told my friend who is keen to try for baby, I told him, please make sure your bank is rich, if not the money spend out is scary. Agree?

  2. haha, no need to be rich, don’t be poor can already. from the stat, every household got $6k in sg so no that bad. if go pte hospital, must PREPARE to pay. if general hosp, pay deposit then everything beyond that can settle after that. good part about general hospital, they allow instalment.

  3. Hi gal, think I posted my hosp bill before in cozycot. Not over the top expensive for my stay at Mount A. Same as you, I had c-sect after induce.

  4. Pinkdewy, I didn’t see your post. So you also paid $1k + cash?

  5. Yes but I claim max amount from Medisave. Think I will post the bill in my blog later ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. oh great, thanks for sharing. will go your blog later. my hubby’s medisave claimable was $3.9k

  7. wow that’s really good!
    TMC is a rip off!!!!!!!!

    i was telling Nat, for TMC.. if emer C sect, they will charge u for both normal birth and c sect!

  8. Hazel, I was very glad to see the bill, I never expect a refund ( from my $1460 deposit ). They did charge me delivery suite usage because I was there for 4 hours, if less than 2 hours, it will be waived. ๐Ÿ™‚ You wanna share your TMC bill ?

  9. Hi Diana.. not bad still have refund… the cost is reasonable.. my bill was close to 8K for the emer c-sect.

  10. wow, jayce, that’s a lot, after medisave deduction, how much cash did you fork out?

  11. mine is planned C sect..
    Gynea fee is $3k plus
    hospital cum operation ward $6k plus
    baby and other misc items..

    Total bill is around 10k… before medisave…

    siong! i am changing gynea for my next bb! hehe she is expensive!!!

  12. wow, that’s a lot. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    How’s your wound? good union? mine starting to fade. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hi Diana,

    Mind if I ask which ward did you stay in? A1?
    Cause I’ve a friend who delivered in KKH (May 2009) and was supposed to go for Natural delivery but end up with Emergency C-sect and her total bill came up to 10K! I was like mouth open for a while cause I never knew it can be so high in KKH sinice it’s a restructured hospital.

    Was wondering if I should stick to A1 or B1 then?

  14. Hi Mrs. Kwok!

    Congrats to you !! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I was like you, contemplating between B1 and A1. It is almost impossible to downgrade (unless something happened to the neonates *touch wood*) so I signed up with B1 and I almost wanted to upgrade to A1 2 hours before stepping into the delivery suite( mine was schedule induce labor ) but things went wrong too fast for me to upgrade, I went for emerg c section after 2 hours of inducing labour ( fetus distress ) so my bill was around $6k.

    If I went ahead upgraded myself to A1, yes the bill is $10k but again, the higher the bill is, the more you get to utilise your medisave so I only paid $1.4k CASH. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t think your friend paid $10k cash la, you need to ask her to breakdown the total like what I did here.

    To be frank, my #2 (hopefully comes in 2012), I will go for schedule c section and opt for A1 class. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t upgrade but first day I was pushed into a single room where my hubby got to rest inside the room with me, I can just BF my baby, use the toilet w/o waiting. B1 – share among 4 patients, my neighbours KEPT USING PHONES to call ALL HER RELATIVES TO TELL THEM HOW HEAVY IS HER BABY, HOW LONG IS HER LABOUR. It was hell..haha..another one even use 3G, another party was playing ็ฏ็ฌผ..blah blah blah… (oh yah, my boy was born on the mid autumn festival). most importantly, my hubby didn’t get to rest well. He was not allowed to stay in the ward (privacy) and there is no place to rest, he ended left the hospital at 2am due to neck pain and backache..haha…

    Good and bad la my dear, is all about the money. if everything goes smooth and well, everyone can afford A1 but I played safe, didn’t wanna sigh A1 at first because many things are unpredictable and true enough, I had an emerg c-section ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Diana,

    Thank you so much! Had a discussion with hub and he thinks we should just opt for A1 cause my MIL will be traveling from Taiwan to Singapore so maybe it’s a better idea to have a single room to myself.

    Yeah, I heard a lot about staying in shared wards where neighbors can get real noisy and disturbing your rest. Thanks for all the help ๐Ÿ™‚

    P/s: My Friend, the one with 10K bill said she said 1 more night at KKH and her baby was in the nursery for 2 more days due to mild jaundice. She says she vividly remember that she fork out about $3K cash in total.

  16. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am happy that you’ve made a decision. Yes it is better to get a single bed and I wish you all the best…have a smooth delivery and post your baby’s photo at your blog..hehe.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    $3k is still reasonable. I was surprise to know my bill was not high too. ๐Ÿ™‚
