Your service fee includes;
Pre-Operative Test Referrals
Complete Weight Loss Solutions provide you with routine Blood Tests, Chest X-ray and ECG referrals to have done at locations of your choice.
After your initial consultation with the Surgeon (out of pocket fee $175), all of your pre-operative, post-operative and review appointments with your surgeon are bulk-billed.
Respiratory Physician Appointments
Our in-room physician appointments are to assess your suitability for surgery.
Please be aware if the physician requires you to have additional tests (e.g. sleep apnea assessment or chest pain evaluation), there may be additional costs incurred as with any out-patient investigations.
The patient will receive a large portion of these fees back from Medicare.
Our Nurses have several face-to-face appointments with you to go through the clinical aspect of your surgery.
They will explain what to expect before & after your operation and help you complete your hospital pre-admission forms.
Our patients are encouraged to contact our rooms at ANY stage of their journey if they need any clinical assistance. This will not incur any additional fees.
Our patients are offered 4 Dietitian appointments
You will meet the Dietitian to discuss dietary changes before and after surgery with post-surgery appointments adjusted to suit your needs.
If a patient uses all of their dietitian appointments but wishes to continue seeing our Dietitian, they can obtain an ‘Allied Health Services Referral’ from their GP.
Our patients are offered an appointment with a psychologist who specializes with bariatric patients. Ongoing support is available for patients who wish to continue appointments.
The Surgical fee will be claimed on your behalf through Medicare and your Private Health Insurance.
Assistant Surgeon fees are covered by Medicare and your Health Insurer and, in most cases, can be claimed directly on your behalf by Complete Weight Loss Solutions.
We discuss all the fees & inclusions at your initial consultation so you can walk away knowing that there are no hidden costs or fees on your journey.
