How to access your superannuation for weight loss surgery

A commonly favoured option is early access to superannuation funds. Patients requiring surgery for essential medical purposes are eligible to use superannuation funds as outlined in The Australian Tax (ATO) guidelines subject to clinical approval.

We recommend each patient strongly consider and balance the urgency of their need for surgery with the possible financial implications of accessing superannuation funds early. Unfortunately, we are unable or qualified to offer you any financial advice.

Standard, routine post-op reviews will be bulk billed.
Telehealth consults available: consult cost + duration can differ.

To learn more, please ask our friendly staff about payment options.
