Can I claim on insurance?
If you have medical insurance, including specialists and tests, you may be able to claim on your initial consultation $415. For the actual balloon procedure, which can vary between $8,500 and $13,000 the major insurance companies don’t seem to have any provisions for this procedure. We have seen some part and full payouts via Partners Life, NIB and UniMED. This does not guarantee that you will be accepted. In all situations, you are best to talk with your financial adviser.
