Before you become pregnant, you might like to review your private health fund cover - more specifically, your private health fund extras cover. Did you know that some private health funds provide cover for childbirth education with a private midwife and homebirth? The benefits are quite generous with some of the funds. You might find that a slight increase in your extras premium equates to hundreds of dollars extra that you can claim back through your fund. So, before you become pregnant, compare some of the types of cover and the benefits you can claim back, and choose the fund that is best for you.
