Weight Loss Surgery Funding

Weight Loss Surgery Funding

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:

  • 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.

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.

Did you know that you can apply for early release of your superannuation to pay for obesity surgery or weight loss surgery?

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.

HOW SUPERCARE WORKS

SuperCare’s unique and innovative service provides specialist assistance to individuals and their families in times of need. We do this by facilitating your application to the Department of Human Services, who can approve the release of funds from your personal superannuation fund. Once you receive the approval letter, you can take it to your own super fund to obtain release of the funds.

SuperCare is the first and only company in Australia to provide this valuable service. We operate under strict regulations which ensure patient privacy and confidentiality is maintained at all times.

SuperCare’s role is to facilitate the application process by providing the following services:

We educate you so that you understand the complexities of the legislation and how the Early Release Superannuation Program (ERS) works.
Our trained professional consultants provide support and guidance in completing the application and dealing with the Department of Human Services (DHS), who administer the ERS program.
SuperCare consultants also provide support and guidance in dealing with your service provider.
