Private Health Insurance

At BodyFree Weight Loss Clinic, we offer all inclusive pricing in order to provide you with the best possible care for one fixed fee. This way, you get the care you need without the worry of any unknown fees.

For patients who hold Private Health Insurance that covers them for Bariatric Surgery (Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass), BodyFree can provide all of your pre and post-operative care, surgery, and ongoing follow-up for a fixed price of $3,990. (Please note: you may also be required to pay your Private Health Fund an excess that is not included in this amount.)

Our all inclusive program covers the following services:

  • Bariatric Surgical consultations with Dr David Joseph (pre and post-operatively)
  • Bariatric Surgery (Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass)
  • Surgical Assistant
  • Anaesthetist
  • Hospital stay (2-3 nights)
  • Three Dietitian Consultations
  • All ongoing surgical follow ups at our clinic

Please note, if you require Revision Bariatric Surgery after a previous operation, then this cost is $4,990-$5,990, and will still include all of the above services. The cost is a little higher for this procedure due to it's specialised nature.

If you would like to check your coverage with your insurer, the procedure item numbers are:

31575  Gastric Sleeve
31572  Gastric Bypass

Superannuation

We know that covering the cost of weight loss surgery can be a challenge.  Some patients may be able to use their Superannuation to cover part or all of the costs if they have the funds available.

This requires patients to apply via the ATO and MyGov websites requesting an early release of funds. Patients will need supporting letters, reports and documentation that our practice can supply to help with that process. You will also need supporting documentation from your GP.

More information about the early release of super funds is available via the ATO Website.

Please note, we can’t guide you on this decision or give you financial advice on the best option for you - but we believe having information on all possible options is best.
