Insured and Uninsured Weight Loss Surgery Costs and Payment Options

Insured Payment Options

To confirm coverage, reach out to your health fund and provide the item numbers for verification.

Most private insurance cover bariatric or weight loss surgery, but a high level of cover is usually required. Patients with suitable coverage will find most hospital and equipment charges will incur a “no gap” fee, and out-of-pocket expenses are mainly from professional and clinic fees from the surgeon, anaesthetist, and assistants. Some equipment used in weight loss surgery may be “non-rebateable” and incur additional costs.

Uninsured Payment Options

If you are not insured for weight loss surgery, you can take advantage of these payment options including:

 

  • Payment Plans
  • Early access to Super
  • Upgrade Private Health Insurance
  • Self-funded

Payment Plans - Payment Option

TLC

Get flexible loan solutions to cover your bariatric surgery.

Visit TLC website

Harmoney

Apply for a medical loan to cover your medical
expenses.

Visit Harmoney website

Early Access to Super - Payment Option

You may be able to access your Super earlier to cover your weight loss surgery. However, accessing your supperannuation should be carefully considered as it may or will affect your retirement income.
Visit the ATO Super Page for more information.

Upgrade Private Health Insurance - Payment Option

You may opt to procure or upgrade your private health insurance. This process typically incurs a 12-month waiting period and will usually require high/top-level cover.

Self-Funded - Payment Option

Self-funding your surgery is another viable option you can consider, especially for those who want to pay for surgery immediately and don’t want to apply for private health insurance and face a waiting period. As a self-funding patient, you will bear all pre-admission hospital costs not covered by Medicare, such as (but not limited to):

 

  • Hospital fees
  • Theatre fees
  • Surgical equipment
  • Pathology/radiology fees
  • Professional fees (surgeon, assistant, & anaesthetist fees)
