Let’s make the first steps easy. As soon your pregnancy is confirmed by a GP, ask for a referral to one of our obstetricians.
Check with your private health fund. Make sure you’re insured for obstetric care and that you understand the specifics of your cover. It’s a good idea to contact your private health fund at least three months prior to your due date, because you may need to add your baby to the cover.
As your obstetrician does not book you in, go to our online eAdmissions portal you will be able to book your admission. You’ll need the following information:
- Name of obstetrician
- Reason for admission (pregnancy)
- Health fund membership and policy details
- GP’s details
- Emergency contact details
- Medications information
If you are using eAdmissions for the first time:
- Select ‘Create Account’
- Enter your details and create a password
- Click validate. We will text a validation code to your phone, enter code into the box on screen and select OK.
- Click ‘start new admission’ and follow the prompts.
If you’re a returning patient:
- Log in with your email address and password
- Select the ‘copy’ button next to your previous admission which will copy over your details and most of your previous medical history for you to verify.
You’ll receive an email with your booking confirmation. You’ll receive an email that confirms your booking. If you have any questions, please telephone 02 9600 4324.
We’re looking forward to seeing you.
Need-to-know health fund information
Health insurance is an important part of budgeting for the birth of your baby. To minimise out-of-pocket expenses, Sydney Southwest Private Hospital has negotiated agreements with all major health funds. While that’s a great start for you, it’s really important to consider other factors.
For instance, most health funds do not automatically cover neonatal care, unless family cover has been in place for three months. So, if you only have singles health insurance, consider a transfer to family cover at least three months before your expected due date.
If you stay on singles cover and your baby is unwell and requires admission to our Special Care Nursery, you’ll need to settle the baby’s account on discharge from the hospital. If you’re expecting a multiple birth, singles health insurance will only cover one baby during your hospital stay. Family health insurance is highly advisable.
It’s best to contact your health fund as soon as possible so there are no financial surprises.
The fee for the routine paediatrician in-hospital check-up is not included in your hospital stay as each paediatrician charges independently. Therefore there’s an additional out-of-pocket fee for this.
We believe in transparency, so whatever your cover, an estimate of costs and any out of pocket excess or co-payments associated with your hospital stay will be sent to you following your pre-admission consultation.
