Okay, let’s get down to business. We’re going to help you figure out how the LAP-BAND® System can fit your budget.
In this section you can find information and support that will give you a good idea of what the LAP-BAND® System might cost, as well as your financing options. Of course, the actual costs will depend on your individual situation and several factors, such as your health insurance cover, and the surgeon and hospital you choose.
Researching your health insurance coverage first could ease your mind when it comes to financing the procedure. You may find your private insurance covers a significant portion of the cost of having a LAP-BAND® System procedure.
Costs of the LAP-BAND® System.
The cost of the LAP-BAND® System procedure varies across Australia and factors such as geography, medical profile, and insurance coverage all impact your final cost. You will need to discuss your circumstances with a LAP-BAND® System specialist to get a detailed understanding of your situation and costs. We can help you find a specialist in your area or answer additional questions about the LAP-BAND® System.
In certain circumstances, you may be able to access your superannuation funds early to cover the costs of your LAP-BAND® System Procedure. Consult your Financial Advisor/Accountant, and your Doctor to see if this is right for you. You will need to check with your superannuation fund to see if this is possible, and apply to the Australia Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). More details can be found on www.apra.gov.au
