Affordable finance options for gastric balloon
It is not uncommon for patients to require finance to fund all or part of their gastric balloon procedure. We know that when you are considering a balloon, weight loss is your primary concern and that value for money will be measured against your weight loss results.
We also understand that price is important so to help more people access Healthier Weight’s premier services, we have introduced the following payment plans*. We'll provide you with a personalised quotation so you can see what's included in your package, including the price and the payments options available.
Interest-Free Payment Plans
In order to make the balloon available to more people, we offer two interest-free deferred payment plans. These plans are also free of any fees or charges. The APR is 0%.
Orbera 365 interest-free plan
If you opt for the 12-month balloon you can elect to defer (delay) up to £2,000 of your balloon fee. Under this plan, you will repay the £2,000 over 12 equal monthly instalments starting on the first of the month after your balloon is put in. It means all of the repayments are completed within 12 months.
Standard BIB interest-free plan
If you opt for the 6-month BIB balloon you can defer up to £1,500. For this balloon, you repay in 6 equal instalments on the first of each month following the balloon being put in. In this case, the repayments are completed within 6 months.
These plans, formally called instalment credit agreements, are linked to your balloon aftercare package. We don’t do credit checks when you apply for these plans but we'll need to see proof of income (payslips or bank statements for the self-employed) and proof of a UK address through a utility bill.
Finance the full cost over 3 years
If you want or need to fund your balloon over a longer period or you need to borrow more than these plans allow, you can consider a loan from our lending partner, afforditNow. afforditNow will provide finance at a representative APR of 14.9%*. You would need to pay a deposit of a minimum of £509 and you can borrow the balance of your balloon fee with repayments over a 36 month period.
