Also to clarify everything is covered in a public hospital. In a private hospital you would be mostly covered but need to find out the 'gap' in case of complications and need for things such as special nursery.

Public Hospital: 100% covered and by Medicare
Private Hospital: Coverage varies as it is a combination of Medicare + Private Insurance, you can find out possible costs before you enter by contacting the private hospital.
