North Eastern Community Hospital’s ‘Lay-by Baby’ birthing model enables families to access private maternity services at NECH and pay for them in instalments, even if they don’t have private health insurance.

The Lay-by Baby self-insured model gives families the opportunity to be cared for by NECH’s highly experienced Visiting Obstetricians and Paediatricians, as well as access pre and post-natal care and extended hospital stay, and pay a simple fixed fee for all services.

The model makes billing easier and more transparent, and families can pre-pay monthly from 12 weeks so they are fully paid by 36 weeks.

Lay-by Baby provides all the benefits of private maternity services, without the need for ongoing private health insurance.

Anyone interested in the Lay-by Baby model can call 8366 8111 to book an appointment to discuss options.
