There are several ways you can cover theses cost:
1. We have an external provider that offers payment plans. Further information call us on 08 83592411.
2. Apply to access early release of your Superannuation. This is an option is certain circumstances, and we can assist if this is your preferred option. We recommend you speak to us about this first before making further enquiries, as we can save you a lot of hassle and heartache. There are 5 forms that need to be submitted together, and we have copies of those you require.
3. For those who do not have private health insurance, options 1 & 2 above can still be used, but a third option is to join private health, wait out the 12 month waiting period, and have your procedure thereafter. However, again we recommend you come and see us to discuss this option for several reasons: Some health funds/tables do not cover Bariatric Surgery so you obviously want to avoid those, and also, we want to use the 12 month wait productively to get you going on a lifestyle program so you can have surgery as soon as the waiting time is over. No point waiting 12 months and then starting the program.
4. Additional out of pocket fees will apply for hospital and anaesthetist fees. This can be discussed with our reception staff.
