Out of Pocket Cost for Weight loss Surgery

At “Keyhole Surgery Centre” We have performed more than 1600 laparoscopic gastric banding surgery and we are very conscious of costs.  To minimise your costs we assess each patient individually and only refer for a clinical psychologist or exercise physiologist if required. However, we do request that all patients undergoing surgery have seen our dietitian for dietary requirement and education prior to surgery. Our fee includes 3 dietitian consultations gastric banding and 5 consult for Sleeve gastrectomy. This is more than sufficient for the education you need to work with the gastric band or your sleeve operation.

We provide our quote as accurate to the finial quote as possible. Pathology cost are not included, most are bulk billed depending on the hospital.

Weight loss surgery starts as low as $3700 all inclusive.

Net medical expenses are the medical expenses you have paid less any refunds you got, or could get, from Medicare, HIF or another private health insurer. For the 2011/12 financial year you can claim a tax offset of 20% of your net medical expenses over $2,060. There is no upper limit on the amount you can claim.

A statement of your hospital, medical and ancillary claims (including provider fees charged and HIF benefits paid) is included with your annual statement. This will assist you in determining whether your out–of-pocket health expenses are eligible for the Net Medical Expenses Tax Offset.
