20-Feb-2013 : To go FPP or NOT?

5 More Days to hotel hospital admission day (25/2)

What is FPP?
FPP stands for Full Paying Patient Scheme at selected Government Hospital in Malaysia.
Sort of like a private section, where patient gets to select their own specialist, comes with priority in-patient facilities but do not expect to be treated like a 'diva' in 'real' private hospitals.

Below is the estimated cost, obtained from Hospital Selayang.
The other hospital offering the same scheme is Hospital Putrajaya.

I am posting this because I remember google'ing' like mad for cost estimates.
So hopefully, it will help others who are now google'ing' like mad.

Am I going for FPP?
Very likely, with much support Aunt LL :)

My only worry is, should there be complications and I'm needed to stay much longer ... the hospital bill will creep-up... and up....
Then again, I've been told that I can exit from FPP, at any time upon settling all outstanding.

Why am I going for FPP?
A specialist will be sure to perform the c-sec and stitch me up after ... without FPP, I may end up with a trainee - I've heard of horror stories.
A little privacy, with a single room - fingers crossed rooms are available upon admission.
And, should Little Binny ends up in NICU - it will be under government rates, not FPP.

Please pray, purr that all will be well, smooth and safe for little Binny and I! :)
