Surgery Funding Options – Finance and Surgery Payment Plan for Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery
Find out about surgery payment plans, medical finance and other options for funding your upcoming surgery with Dr Carmen Munteanu – Specialist Plastic Surgeon in Melbourne VIC.
Four Ways To Fund Your Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
1. A savings fund
Special Purpose SAVINGS FUNDS may be an option and is available from different banks.
2. Extra savings from a home loan
Save up and save interest on your home loan: Just pay your home mortgage down and redraw when ready to have surgery.
3. Using your super
Some patients might be able to access their Superannuation Funds to pay for their plastic surgery. Keep in mind that there is a special government process to follow and many forms to fill out.
This may be most likely to apply to:
- breast reduction
- body lift surgery (Excess Skin reduction surgery after significant weight loss)
Under exceptional circumstances, the ATO will assess early super fund access on ”compassionate grounds”, which include medical procedures to treat life-threatening illnesses and chronic pain. Your Superfund will make the final decision to release the money. Note that not all super funds permit early access of super benefits on these grounds, so you should check with your super fund before applying.
You can find further information on the requirements, including documentation, by visiting the ATO website Early Release of Super page:
Please follow this Plastic Surgery Hub link for more information about using Super for Surgery.
4. Medical finance – offering payment plans
You can either arrange to pay off your procedure in installments before your surgery date or you can organise medical finance.
