Not sure if this topic is appropriate for this forum, but we want to get an idea for the bill that will come along with our precious 3rd baby next month. We are delivering at WakeMed and we have a wonderful 20% we need to cover. Anyone have a child recently and know a roundabout #? We had an HMO in NY, but all of our dr's were in the plan and we would get a huge bill of $20k or so, and all we were on the hook for was $250 for hospital and $250 for anesthesiologist. Those were the days lol. Thanks!

Not sure of the delivery costs (no kids yet), but do you have a "coinsurance maximum" on your insurance? From what I've seen, most typically do. So even though you're responsible for 20%, it would only be 20% up to a certain amount, say $2,000 (or whatever your coinsurance max is).

Hope this helps! Congrats on the upcoming arrival of Baby No. 3!

Default Baby Costs

Call their billing department and they can give you a pretty good idea of what it will cost.

I had my first baby there and spoke to them ahead of time. They were very helpful. I also called my insurance ahead of time and they gave me a good idea of what they expected my out of pocket costs to be. In the end, I remember the estimates being pretty right on.

Congrats and good luck!

I delivered there 2/10. I was in the hospital for 6 days tho so not sure you can go by my bill. Mine was around $18K. Our portion with immediate payment discount was around $2700. We saved around $500 by paying it over the phone with a credit card.

Would probably run you in the ten thousand range unless you have insurance: Baby Delivery Cost: $15,420 - SurgeryCosts.net

there should be a flat fee for vag or c/s based on your OB office, and you should have signed a form at the beginning of your care cycle with them. My 3rd is on its way in March, 2nd was born at Wake Med and 3rd will be too. A lot of it is what your coverage is with your insurance, and whether they cover 100% once you have hit some threshold. Talk to your OB office to get the details. And know that if your delivery changes, or if your baby needs to spend more time etc., the number is subject to change!! Hope you have a safe and healthy delivery and a wonderful experience. My 2nd was a spectacular delivery (10# baby, no epi, pitocin induced)

My daughter had a baby at Wake Med in October of 2008. We never signed any form for a flat fee. We received a copy of the bill which was approximately $17,000. She did have a c-section so that cost is more than the average. We paid $150 to Wake Med and insurance covered the rest (BCBSNC). The anesthesiologist sent us a separate bill for approx. $200 and we paid that. And that was it for our out of pocket costs. Not bad, I say.
