My job takes my overseas -- sometimes very far away. For now my wife is pregnant and is around 19 weeks. She is coming out to see me a few weeks at a time, and is intending on staying until she is due with the baby (so we can be together because I am obligated to be here 'til March or so).
The thing is, she will have to keep seeing doctors. When she's here (Australia), how would this work out? She has a passport and has been here before, but how would this work? Would the pay for checkups have to be done out of pocket? Is this something we should specifically work out before hand, as opposed to right on the spot? She will likely need to see weekly/bi-weekly checkups, combined with her regular doctor back at home.
The question is, more so actually, if we should prepare this before -- or just pay everything out of pocket when necessary? How would this work out?
I figured this question would fit since it involves variables surrounding travel -- and is not expatriate-related since this is only for several months or so.
Her health insurance has nothing mentioning international terms. And I'm just wondering if there's a "better" way of setting this up that should be noted.
