Once the online eAdmission is received, you will receive an automatic email confirming your booking has been submitted.

Prince of Wales Private Hospital is recognised by all major health funds.
Please note that if you have been a member of your health fund for less than 12 months, or have changed levels of cover recently, you may not be covered for your admission. Please confirm your level and timing of coverage with your health fund.
The Hospital will lodge a claim on your behalf and, in confirming your booking with us, we will also confirm your coverage with your health fund. If your insurance cover requires you to pay an excess or co-payment for your claim, this must be paid prior to admission to Hospital. Information regarding how much you will be required to pay will be sent to you approximately 4-6 weeks prior to your estimated due date.
You will need to confirm with your Health Fund that your policy will cover your baby in the event that the baby is required to be admitted to the Special Care Nursery or, if you are having a multiple birth, that both babies are covered.
You may be required to change from single/couples cover to family cover. This cover change can be arranged with most funds up to three months prior to the birth. If you are not covered at the time of admission you will be required to pay the cost of treatment for your baby on discharge.
Once your booking has been received our Maternity Bookings staff will provide you with an estimate of hospital charges for your admission with your email of confirmation.
The financial consent will include an estimate of charges relating to your admission. These charges must be paid in full by the 34th week of your pregnancy.
Please be aware that in the event your baby requires more than 2 days/nights in the Special Care Nursery, there is an additional fee payable for each day/night spent there.
The Hospital has a computerised patient information system and your account is maintained as your stay progresses. You will need to see one of our reception staff to finalise any outstanding charges you may have incurred at the end of your stay with us.
Please note that fees charged by your Specialist, Anaesthetist, Neonatologist or Surgical Assistant will be billed separately by the relevant provider after your stay.Methods of Payment: We accept Eftpos, cash, Visa and Mastercard. If you wish to pay by cheque, please note we only accept bank cheques made payable to Prince of Wales Private Hospital – we do not accept personal cheques.
