Payment options that make weight loss surgery more affordable

"I know that getting this surgery was the best thing I've ever done for myself."
– Tanya, Gastric Sleeve

Financing Options to Suit Your Budget

How much is your health worth? Surgical weight loss may seem expensive, but it’s a life-changing procedure that will transform how you look and feel. And with lifelong benefits—including a longer, healthier life—the cost per year becomes minimal. Plus, our Gastric Sleeve, Mini Gastric Bypass and LAP-BAND weight loss surgery include five years of comprehensive, customized lifestyle support through our 5-Year AfterCare Success Program. You’ll be supported by our medical experts at every step of your weight loss journey. 

Stop spending money on traditional diets and the invisible costs of being overweight, like plus-sized clothing, prescription medications and weight-related health issues. SmartShape weight loss surgery is a one-time investment in the rest of your life and the last weight loss solution you’ll ever need. It works and you’re worth it.

Common Insurance and Government Programs

If you have a private health care plan, we suggest you speak directly with your insurance provider to find out if you have insurance coverage for weight loss procedures. We would be happy to provide any information your insurance company may need.


Federal tax credits are available for medically necessary procedures. You should be eligible to submit your bariatric surgery cost as a medical expense on your income tax return. To learn more about what is available, please visit the Canada Revenue Agency website or speak with your financial advisor or accountant.


The RHSA is a government-approved program that permits small business owners, self-employed and incorporated individuals to use pre-tax dollars from their company to fund healthcare costs. This can provide a substantial reduction in the after-tax cost of the procedure. For more information or to speak with a client service representative for the RHSA program, please contact:

Please note, the SmartShape Weight Loss Centre is not directly involved in coordinating your RHSA account. The details provided above are for informational purposes only.
