Especially, in regard to the weight loss surgery cost, and how your private health insurance may impact the cost of your weight loss surgery. There are many options when it comes to paying for your weight loss surgery.  SuperCare and Zip Pay may be available as choices for payment. Whatever your situation, Perth Weight loss can aid you in figuring out the best payment option for your weight loss surgery.

Private health insurance

Private health insurance is important to have when it comes to bariatric weight loss surgery. Your private health insurance should be set up to cover obesity surgery. The amount of coverage that your private health insurance can give, will depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • The type of health fund cover
  • Primary or revisional surgery
  • Type of surgery
  • Anticipated complexity
  • Time taken for the operation

These factors will determine the gap payment or out-of-pocket costs that is required for your bariatric weight loss surgery. It is also important to find out if your private health insurance covers excess hospital costs. This may only be applicable for some weight loss surgeries. For more information on how private health insurance may impact the cost of your weight loss surgery in Perth, please see our Perth Weight Loss and Surgery Costs Page.
