My previous post about Maternity Package of MMC is now officially obsolete. I received another comment and she told me that the package for Spontaneous Vaginal Delivery is P57000.00 while the Caesarian Delivery is now P82000.00. During my time it was only P47000.00, the package doesn’t include other medications and prolonged professional fees.
Cost of giving birth nowadays is not a joke! Partners must save at least 100,000.00 to have a decent and comfortable birthing experience.
Last year when I gave birth in Makati Med, my bill went up to 60-65K. This total covered the package amount and the additional charges including professional fees and room rates.
My birthing experience in MMC was great! From the moment that I had bloody and watery discharge, they admitted me and immediately gave full attention.
Hospital nurses and Med Interns were very accommodating. I never felt like “I’m gonna die in a while…” I didn’t feel unease, actually I never heard anyone screaming. It was like I’m inside of an adoration chapel.
Actually my room was semi-private only which part of the package. The semi-private room is a big room divided into three with one common comfort room, it’s more like room within a room. Every room has television and can accommodate five to ten visitors.
If I will get pregnant for the second time, I will still push to give birth in Makati Medical Center.
*Unfortunately, I don’t have photos of semi-private room :C
why is it cheaper at makati med? i’m giving birth at manila doctors and my OB said we need at LEAST 95k for cs…
I don’t know eh, actually mas mahal pa ata bill sakin ni Shayne sa Capitol, pero di siya natuwa sa services dun. Accdg to ava 40plus raw sa St lukes ang normal pero 100plus ang CS, mahal naman ang CS talaga… sa akin 42k lang dapat pero asahan mo marami pang daragdag sa bill mo… goodluck!
delivery packages, either normal or cs are really getting expensive nowadays even in our place which is just a small city in mindanao
wow! mas mura pa pala sa MMC thank TMC.. hmmm.. i should take note of this, and research for a good OB there… 🙂
Yap ehehehe… my OB is Good… 😀 Dra. Caedo-Lim 😀
I gave birth at MMC in 2008. It was a CS delivery. My OB is Dra. Mae Syki-Young. I forgot how much exactly we paid, but it was less that P75,000. I love MMC more than any hospital in the metro.
Hi, For the package that you availed of, would you know how much was allocated for the doctors’ PF and hospital bill? the personnel from sales kasi told us that we could only avail of PhilHealth deduction up to the hospital bill only.
really, hospital bill lng ang may deduction ng Phil. Health? ang sad nmn nun. e ang malaki p nmn n bayad un s doctors.
Hmnnn… I gave birth last 2008 at MMC… Maternity Package that time was 65k for CS in a semi-private room. My total bill went up to 72k… I wonder why… But, with my second baby on the way, I still go for MMC’s new packaging effective this Sept 2010, as what my obgyne informed me. I had a very good experience with them back in 2008. 🙂
my wife just gave birth in makati med last october 24. she had to undergo a csection since her cervix was not dilated enough. we took the caesarean package which was 82,000.00 pesos. total charges including other procedures, medicines, equipment total bill was 100,219.00. wala pa bawas philhealth dito. so our total final bill was around 88,000.00 not bad. we were also lucky that our doctors did not charge us extra for their PF.
actually the doctors there are good… pero yeah maliit lang talaga halos bawas ng philhealth sa MMC, na recall ko sa package ko 2500 lang philhealth! sucks…
If u green card they have package for normal delivery which is 20k only and 35k for CS delivery
Hello Ms. Laxmi,
What does the green card cover? How about the experience? Wala naman yung feeling na “tinipid” sa service?
hi. I Will give birth on feb and for cs… Ask ko lng pano b kumuha ng green card sa makati med?pls help jobless kc kmi magasawa ngaun kya i really need mga discount cards.. Thnk u and Godbless!
Just want to share my experiences I had giving birth to my 4 beautiful kids at MMC via CS section, yes I’m not kidding. I’ve been under the knife 4 times which I was afraid something bad might happen to me on my 4th procedure. I’ve been lucky enough my co-workers before had told me about the green card so I checked it out though I was hesitant I won’t be able to get it as I was still working by that time. Lucky enough I got it without any hassle, my birthing experience with my eldest was mixed emotions. We were so happy & blessed after 8 long years of being together we were finally granted with a beautiful girl. The package I was given last 2010 was 20K for normal & 34,500.00 for CS which really makes me happy as I was told by my OB I’m seeing at MMC (private doctor) in my case (asthmatic) best I would prefer between 150-200K IF I will be CS. She told me baby is huge & I might have a hard time pushing it out. With the estimation she gave me I chickened out & opt for getting the green card. Overall, I was pleased with the outcome but was really regretful I didn’t get a chance to ask my husband to come in so he can take picture of our lil bundle of joy. It was only on my 2nd baby I found out that it is possible to kindly request from the doctors & nurses to call in your partner inside the delivery room so he can take some pictures of you and the baby. Yes, it is possible just politely ask, I was not aware on my 1st time as they already told me right before you go inside the labor room that all cameras & phones are not allowed not even your husband can stay with you while you’re on labor.
That part I was not too happy about but I think it’s mandatory as they don’t want the room to get too crowded inside. Just to make it clear, even if you have a green card doesn’t mean they will not give you a better quality service, once you admitted yourself all the nurses will attend to you right away. All the nurses & doctors were all over me asking questions left & right, (it was worst with my 3rd child as I have pedia, OB, endocrinologist for my gestational diabetes, pulmonologist, anesthesiologist & lots of nurses were all over me, you named it). In addition to this the one who will actually help you deliver the baby are well trained resident doctors so they’re pretty good. I was lucky to even have the same Doctor that deliver my 2nd & 3rd baby. I’m pretty sure MMC management will not let any inexperienced doctors “sew” you up (for CS) if they know they’re not confident to do their job especially its their reputation that’s at stake if something go wrong. On the other hand since I am considered as a high risk patient with asthma and a case of gestational diabetes we usually settle our bill in a range between 55-65K less philihealth (14,500 was deducted for my philhealth this 2016 w/ my 4th child). I will be forever be thankful & grateful for having the green card as it indeed save us A LOT of money knowing I gave birth to 4 kids via CS section, so imagine the expenses. Those mom who are kind of hesitant about the services do not fret about it as its not what you think once you’re in DR. You get all the care & quality of their service that Makati Med is known for. Be a wise parent & think of how much you can save.
