What if I don't have Private Health Insurance?

If you are not in a health fund, but are covered by Medicare, we can still offer you an affordable package for Dr Bells services.

In this case, you would usually elect to deliver at Westmead Public Hospital as a "Self Insured Private Patient" to reduce costs. Although in a Public Hospital, you would still be under Dr Bells care. The hospital will charge you about $1500, but that price remains fixed regardless of how long you stay or whether complex extra services are required. Since I will not get anything from a health fund, then my charge will be higher (approximately $3500).
