Health Insurance Covered Weight Loss Surgery Information and Costs

Having private health insurance is certainly encouraged when undergoing Bariatric procedures. Although private health insurance will cover a good portion of your surgical procedure, please keep in mind that all elective procedures incur out of pocket expenses. These prices vary for each procedure and are based on patient medical circumstances.

Initial consultations for any bariatric procedure is BULK-BILLED with a valid referral and Medicare card.

Our patients also have the option to access their Superannuation to cover certain weight loss procedures. For more information click here
