surgeons in western suburbs of melbourne and peoplecare PHI

Recommended Posts

HI,

Im new to the forum. i have been thinking about weightloss surgery for sometime. my BMI is 48 and so from what i have read a sleeve would be a better option.

I have basic hospital with people care which doesn't state obesity surgery as restricted but it doesn't say its covered either. I've called and no one seems to know without an item number. anyone know the item number ?

 

Also i currently live in point cook and would like advice on a surgeon this side of town as they all seem to be based in the S.E suburbs.

 

TIA

Bojarkus - I am sure there are item numbers floating around here somewhere....hopefully someone can help. If all else fails, call a clinic and ask :)

31575 for a sleeve :-)

you can see how much you'd get back from Medicare and PHI by searching the item number on mbsonline.gov.au after you find out if your fund will cover the procedure
