The following is a guideline to your bariatric surgery costs and procedures
IT IS PREFERABLE THAT ALL BARIATRIC PATIENTS BE IN A PRIVATE HEALTH FUND TO ACCESS BARIATRIC SERVICES.
UNINSURED PATIENTS HAVE MORE COSTS TO COVER (Please let us know if uninsured when making an appointment).
We strongly advise you ring your private health insurer to ascertain any rebates to which you might be entitled. Bariatric services are offered to patients aged 18 and up. The practice does not participate in any private health insurer’s “gap scheme”.
A current referral from a GP or Medical Specialist is required.
