I know that the insurance companies negotiate like hell and get special rates, but if they can do it for them......

That was for St. Peters with private rooms and all the bells and whistles so maybe that will give you a ballpark figure of what it SHOULD cost.

I work for a reimbursement health fund (essentially insurance but not quite the same)-you can DEFINATELY negotiate healthcare costs when paying cash. You would be amazed at what a medical provider will right off when they know they will be getting cash quickly rather than having to bill and fight with a patient for months/years after a procedure. Never, NEVER hurts to ask.

Why aren't you considering Palisades in Edgewater? Why hasn't anyone else mentioned it either? Have you heard bad things? I was considering delivering there because its where my OB/GyN works?

Dave principe is excellent too. He is one of the few who still specializes in high risk deliveries, so if things were to go wrong, he would be a great guy to have around. He practices out of st. Joes in paterson, not st barnabas, but his cost would probably be lower than dr quartell.
