We know that affording these kinds of procedures and treatments can be daunting and stressful. Here are some options for you.
Payment Plan for Medical Finance
Total Lifestyle Credit offer payment plans for medical finance. Finding the funds for your surgery so you don’t have to. Explore your options and let TLC help you with whatever you need.
Set Up A Savings Fund
Most banks and credit unions offer a range of special-purpose savings accounts (such as Christmas Club).
Putting aside a little each week can amount to more than you think at the end of a year or two. Make sure you have checked out your interest rates – you might be able to get a higher interest for opening a savings account where you don’t withdraw.
Credit Cards and Personal Loans
Most banks or credit unions offer credit cards or personal loans with low-interest rates or even interest-free periods. Make sure you check out their terms and conditions. There are several websites dedicated to comparing credit cards to find the best deal.
Super Fund Withdrawal
This allows you to use your own super funds – but it’s not that easy. You have to qualify and there is a strict application process for early release of your superannuation under compassionate medical grounds.

Redrawing on Your Mortgage
If you don’t already have a redraw facility on your mortgage, you could also consider paying more off your mortgage for a year or two so that you can redraw on it when you are ready to have your surgery. To find out more about redrawing on your mortgage go here.
