Weight Loss Surgery Funding & Advice

In Australia, statistics reveal that obesity affects up to 3 in 5 adults.

If you or a family member need help funding Obesity Surgery, talk to SuperCare.

With the assistance of our innovative service, SuperCare can facilitate your application for funding obesity/bariatric surgery procedures including: Lap Band surgery, Gastric Sleeve surgery or Gastric Bypass surgery.

Obesity is a disease and it can be life-threatening, unless intervention is undertaken.

There are two types of weight gain associated with obesity:

  • Central weight, which gathers around the middle
  • Peripheral weight, which gathers around the bottom half of the body, such as in the buttocks and thighs

Apart from reduced life expectancy, self esteem issues and the social stigma which can be attached to obesity, carrying extra weight puts pressure on internal organs and can cause ongoing health complications such as heart disease, diabetes, joint pain, cholesterol and blood pressure issues.

You may be able to access your super for funding bariatric or obesity surgery. You can apply to access your super to pay for surgery for yourself or your partner. You may choose to apply for funding to cover the entire cost of the procedure or part of the cost.
