In Australia, statistics reveal that obesity affects up to 3 in 5 adults and 1 in 4 children.
Don’t Let Obesity Stop You From Being Your Best.
Your time is now.
Weight is a sensitive and personal issue and it’s different for each of us. While there is no universal rule that we all must be slim, tackling obesity needs to be handled with all of the best options, care and support possible.
Your decision to undergo weight loss surgery and start your new, healthier life is one of the most empowering decisions you’ll ever make.
The best version of you is yet to come and you should feel confident ahead of your journey without the stress and anxiety of what it will all cost..
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 – as well as Plastic Surgery to eliminate excess skin after your weight loss.
Obesity is a disease and it can be life-threatening unless intervention is undertaken.
There are two types of weight gain associated with obesity:
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.
Gastric sleeve surgery, for example, involves the laparoscopic removal of the outer part of the stomach which converts the stomach from a sac into a narrow banana-shaped tube. This surgery results in patients feeling less hungry. Patients who undergo Gastric Sleeve surgery lose on average 60% of their body weight within 12 months.
You may be able to access your funds for funding bariatric or obesity surgery. You can apply to access your super to pay for surgery for yourself, your partner or your children. You may choose to apply for funding to cover the entire cost of the procedure or part of the cost.

I had the pleasure dealing with Rossana. I'd like to say she made the process stress free. She was very understanding, polite and professional. She was available any time I needed he. So thank you for all your help.
I wanted to take some time this evening to provide some feedback regarding my recent experience with Supercare.
I can't begin to express my gratitude towards Catherine for making this the most stress free process for me. From the get go, Catherine was helpful, friendly and extremely easy to get in touch with during this process. Nothing was to big a ask for her and she made each step of the process easy to follow and understand.
Our IVF journey can now start with a much clearer mind, all because one of your representatives took the time to make this an easy straight forward process for us
I wish to thank Catherine and wish her all the best for the future
I just want to say it was an absolute pleasure dealing with you throughout my application. You're an amazing person making me feel very at ease with all necessary steps that needed to be taken.
You are a great asset to SuperCare, making less worry for myself. Thank you for your guidance and making everything go smoothly!
It was an absolute pleasure speaking with you throughout my application.
Thank you very much!
I am writing about my experience with Hala who helped me with an application for Early Release of Super for IVF:
My consultant was professional, friendly and approachable. Without her, I would not have been able to complete the application as it was daunting and stressful. My consultant was reassuring and made the application process manageable and stress-free.
Hala was very knowledgeable, took the time to answer any of my questions, and provided much needed guidance to get through this process. I cannot thank my consultant and SuperCare enough, they truly do amazing work!
I would like to thank Gabrielle Davkovski and Super Care for a speedy and hassle free process to have my Superannuation released for some much needed Dental work, with step by step instructions from start to finish, Gabrielle made it easy and stress free.
Thanks Gabrielle and Super Care!
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Catherine and the amazing team at SuperCare. I cant thank you enough for your help and amazing guidance throughout the entire process. So very thankful for all your help. Cannot recommend SuperCare enough.
Thank you so much for everything you and the team has done for me. I couldn't have done this without you! You were so incredibly efficient, always available to help and so supportive during such a stressful time and I can't thank you enough.
The funds will now enable me to start another cycle on Monday - the timing couldn't be more perfect.
Thanks again! I am so grateful of your help.
I just wanted to say, a huge Thank you to Catherine. I have done two rounds of IVF and paid in full with no discount to Queensland Fertility Clinic. (They didn’t even let us know we could access our own money)! I transferred to Monash, who informed my husband and I that we could use our Superannuation.
Over the last 4 months her dedication, commitment, follow up with phone calls and e-mails have been outstanding. My husband and I own 5 companies and he was even saying how good she was. I was happy with every process (and it is not a small one). Her e-mails are stated step by step process, she rings and follow-ups and gives you little tips along the way! Friendly, approachable and even when she couldn’t get back to you asap, she lets you know!
She knows her job and the client. This is a very emotional and expensive treatment, IVF and all the help you can get is much appreciated.
Thank you, Jenny for making my application such an easy and stress free application. Step by step, everything was always explained and I was continually kept up to date about the progress. Thank you for always being in contact and not leaving me thinking what next? Dealing with you, was like been looked after by a friend. Getting the news about my approval was the best news. If your thinking about going through SuperCare, do it!
Thanks again for all your help.
I wanted to thank you very much for all your assistance in helping me organising my early release of my super for my operation.
You made everything so easy, with your detailed instructions. When I needed extra help or had any questions you were quick to answer and action. I couldn't have done this without you.
SuperCare from the beginning where very helpful, and prompt with advising on what needed to be done.
Thanks again for all you have done, I will definitely be advising anyone who wants to do the same, to go through you and your services.
I was extremely happy with my experience using Supercare, They made the process very easy, I was given step by step instructions and Marah followed up regularly with updates on the progress of my application until the successful completion. I wouldn't hesitate to use Supercare again.
I spoke to you yesterday regarding one of your staff members, Hala.
Hala has been looking after my ivf super application and has been amazing. She has gone above and beyond and has worked so hard. Hala has kept me updated throughout every step and helped answer all my questions. I would really like to extend my gratitude and compliments to her for all her help. Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous staff member you have in her and think she should be commended for her hard work.
It’s been fantastic knowing that I don’t have to worry about the status of my application because you’ve not only been on top of it but also communicating where it’s at. Communication is so rare these days so to know that my application was considered important to you has been brilliant. You’re a big asset to that company. I have a couple of friends thinking of going through the process so I’ll certainly be handing them your details.
What a wonderful and stress-free experience this was! I was really hesitant and I had no idea what I was doing. Marah was fantastic! She stepped me through every process and kept me informed the whole way. Money is in the bank already! Thanks again for your help and a great experience.
I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the fantastic work of Sonia and the service she has provided. My experience has been such that I will recommend Supercare to others.
I don't usually write emails but I have to say thank you to Cody and the kind people at SuperCare for all of the information and making easy for me. Bless you all.
Hi Cody, you recently helped me to apply to the ERS to attain funds from my super account to pay for my partner's funeral. I would just like to personally thank you for all your patience and help - it certainly didn't go unnoticed. I wish you well and once again THANK YOU
