Deposit, Refund, & Cancellation Policy

Mexico Bariatric Center® (MBC) posts its deposit, refund, and cancellation policy that is documented on the Health Questionnaire (HQ) and the Consent Form. This policy applies to all surgeons and surgery types at Mexico Bariatric Center. Please contact your patient coordinator if you have any questions regarding these policies.

Deposit and Booking Bariatric Surgery

  1. Security Deposit: A deposit of $350.00 non-refundable (U.S. dollars) must be made on the day of scheduling your surgery. If you deposit via wire transfer or direct deposit, please fax a copy of the wire transfer or the direct deposit receipt with your name on it to 1-855-453-2329 to ensure proper credit. Any deposit under $500 USD is non-refundable.
  2. Remaining Balance Deposit: The client is required to pay the entire remaining balance of the surgery (and send proof of payment) fifteen (15) days prior to surgery. Clients are required to have a zero balance before traveling to Mexico. If canceling or postponing the surgery, the remaining balance deposit will be governed by our refund and cancellation policy (found below). Surgery will be canceled/postponed until full payment of surgery is credited to our account. Any cost incurred by the client due to late payment and processing times, such as extra hotel nights, flight cancellation, or rescheduling, will be the sole responsibility of the client.
