Cost of giving birth at Chinese General Hospital

I gave birth at Chinese General Hospital via NSD. My OB, Dra. Mitch Borbe is affiliated with the hospital that’s why I chose it there aside from it’s the one near our place. We went to the delivery room at 1 AM in the morning and I gave birth at 9:53 AM of December 22, 2010. I thank God that I had an easy delivery, the most excruciating pain of labor lasted for only an hour before the final GO! My OB is also happy that I didn’t give her a hard time on my delivery, after 3 or 4 pushes, baby’s out!

Our hospital bill costs Php 28, 606.55. That includes private room charge, nursery room charge, delivery room and labor room fees, PF of both OB and pediatrician and the medicines and other miscellaneous items. I was not able to use my Philhealth at that time because it’s a holiday and no one can sign the form, I’ll just reimburse it next year.

Private room charge in Chinese General Hospital is Php 1750 in the old building and Php 2000 in the new building. Jeff chose the old building because it’s near the delivery room. Rooms are clean and the comfort rooms are clean and well-maintained.

Most of the bulk of the cost in giving birth is due to the high PF of doctors but I’m lucky to have a very good OB with minimal PF. Dr. Mitch Borbe’s PF is Php 10,000, but with less Philhealth, it’s only Php 7,500. If you’re looking for a good OB, I recommend her because although she’s young, she took care of me throughout my pregnancy and had me and my baby safe and healthy. She has clinic schedule at Centralle Medical Diagnostics at 6th Avenue, Caloocan City every Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. She replies through text messages whenever I have questions or I just need some quick consultations too.

Whew, I’m glad that I breezed through this pregnancy and Jeff and I were able to save up for this pregnancy that we don’t need to use any payday cash advance. I’ll just claim my SSS Maternity benefit next year to recover part of the costs.

    we’ll most likely be spending the same amount, pero after insurances na daw yun, pag normal delivery ako…
    i’ll just give birth at a women’s clinic and i’m just so happy my husband is willing. i’m scared of big hospitals and i really would love to have this moment with the closest people to me.. pag don pa kami nakatira sa old place namin, for sure, mas-stress lang ako after or maybe during delivery…

    congratulations ulit…
    hugs and kisses to baby Gwen!

    Hello po,

    First time preggy po ako. Di ko alam kun san ako manganganak.

    kasi po, due ko sa Oct 04, 2011, sa MCU kasi I ask my OB kun magkano, 50K po un painless birth. Eh mas malapit po ako sa Chinese Gen, kasi I live on Abad Santos Ave. Mukang mas OK po dito at if hands on doc cya, try ko po sa kanya magpa-check-up.

    Un po bang phone number sa taas sa Chinese ito o sa Centralle? magkano po un check-up fee nya? o covered po kaya sya ng mga HMO? Thank you po. Sana po may reply. Thanks again.

    =)

    Yung phone number, 366-85-90, number nya yun sa clinic nya sa Centralle near 5th Avenue. And yes, covered sya ng HMO, I used my Medicard every check-up. Pag wala naman, consultation fee is 300-400.

    I think meron din syang clinic sa Polymed Tondo, pero not sure, just call the number above to be sure.

    hi sis,

    around 21k lang inabot bill mo including na PF’s at private room pa? bakit ang mura? i just want to ask kng may card ka na ginamit when you gave birth, puwede pa kasi yung rate na yun kng sa ward lang dahil yun ang quote sakin, thanks.

    [Reply]

    misisb Reply:

    Hi Monica, sorry, typo error. 28k yung bill ko not 20k. I was there 1 am ng Dec. 22, I gave birth 9:45 am ng Dec. 22. Tapos I went home agad ng Dec. 23, siguro kaya mura kasi parang 2 days lang ako sa hospital. Hindi ko ginamit yung Medicard ko, I paid in full. Mura kasi maliit lang yung PF ng OB ko, 7,500 lang.

    Hi misisb,

    I am 12 weeks pregnant i planned to go to Centralle Medical center. Nakunan na ko before kya parang worried ako this time. I want my baby to survive kya i need good OB-Gyne. Thanks sa post m. I got an idea from you that’s why Chinese Gen and Dra Borbe are my choice.

    Hi Edel,

    Just check on this blog, please advise if you wish to pursue in the Chinese Hosp with Dra. Borbe since I guess I’ll be giving birth there on 1st week of Aug. I’m on my 15weeks today. Would like to inquire also how much is the package. This is my first baby.

    However, my OB now is in Lourdes Hosp.

    hi tere congrats sa 2nd baby mo.well sa question mo wla akong idea pero mas maganda kung visit ka sa clinic nya.aq kasi inabot lng ng 22 normal.maganda ang services.yung mga nurses very friendly.yung sa labor rum ok nman sk magaling tlg si doctora.ang isa pa pwede kang makiusap sa knya para mababaan yung fee nya.dhil naka discount tlg kaming mag asawa.naalala kopa nung ngma mild labor nako sabi nya kapag nanganak daw ako ng wla sa oras wag nadaw ako pumunta ng chinese dhil napaka mahal ng incubator.ayaw din nya na mgtatagal sa delivery rum dhl mahal din daw kaya gagawin nya lahat para dika mahirapan at mapamahal.try mo sis pumunta sa clinic nya:)

  14. weng chan Says:

    hi may, naku parehong pareho tayo ng situation.yung previous delivery ko hindi din maganda yung experience ko.mabuti nlng naging ob ko c dra.zamora
    anyway about your concern…you can see the ob and the ceiling dahil nakahiga ka:)
    the nurses are good and nice.sabihin mo lng yung gusto mo.
    alam mo ba na nanganak ako ng hindi ko alam kung pano nila nilabas yung bata.well may sinaksak sila sakin para ma groggy ako.then isang mahabang push at nakatulog n pla ako and when i woke up ns recovery rum nako.
    you can ask everything to your ob.and kung wla k pang ob u can try dra.soccoro zamora
    isa lng yung promise nya sakin noon, hindi kita patatagalin sa delivery rum dhl mahal parang patak ng taxi at ayokong nahihirapan ang pasyente ko.
    wag k nerbiyusin it can affect you and your baby.just calm and pray:)
