SBC offers affordable pricing for their bariatric surgeries so that more patients can have access to life-changing surgery. A program fee is charged that covers the entire treatment and multidisciplinary care.
The fee for SBC with private health insurance is approximately $5,800. Private health insurance will cover your hospital costs.
The fee without private health insurance is from $8,500 (excluding all hospital costs, which will be quoted by the hospital after your first appointment).
Early Release of Superannuation can be accessed on medical grounds to help cover some or all of the costs of bariatric surgery. The application for early superannuation release is processed through the Australian Tax Office. You will need to fill in an
application form and obtain a letter of support from both your GP and specialist.
