Refund from NHS & HSE

Bariatric surgery defines a group of surgical interventions which help people lose weight, fightobesity-related diseases, and improve quality of life. Obesity is a medical condition associated with a variety of complications which affect most organs. However, some people find it hard to lose such a massive amount of weight on their own. That is why they are put on the waiting line for a weight loss surgery by NHS or HSE. Unfortunately, a patient may have to wait for surgery from 3 months to even 12 months or more.

That is the main reason why people start to consider having their surgery abroad. Although it might look like a time and money consuming process, our clinic is ready to help our patients to get a refund.

Claim the costs of your surgery from the NHS/HSE

Did you know that you can claim the costs of your surgery abroad from the NHS or HSE if you have been waiting for surgery unreasonably long? Applying for the refund before travelling for surgery abroad will increase your chances of getting a refund after returning back home.

Going for surgery abroad

When a patient is going for surgery abroad, NHS and HSE expect them to make all of the arrangements themselves. That includes:
  • finding a healthcare provider;
  • travel arrangements;
  • aftercare organisation;
  • insurance and refund documentation.
Choosing our clinic might help you avoid some of these arrangements. We do our best to help our patients and make their stay as easy as possible. The clinic helps patients with documents needed to claim a refund from NHS & HSE for medical treatment abroad. It applies to patients who are insured under the UK and Irish systems and may not get the surgery due to long waiting times.
