Packages and pricing
The Bays welcomes both privately-insured and self-funded patients
If you have private health insurance, we recommend that you consult with your health fund about your health insurance policy and exactly what it covers. Ask about potential gap and excess payments, or waiting periods. Admissions to the special care nursery and services provided by anaesthetists, paediatricians and other specialists will incur charges that may not be fully covered by Medicare or your health fund. In this case gap payments may be required. Your doctor or health fund can give you more information about these costs. Be aware that you may incur additional costs during your stay with us such as phone calls, partner meals or take-home medication from the pharmacy.
