We will refund FIFTY PERCENT (50%) of the initial deposit after we deduct (if any)  additional expenses* incurred by Tijuana Bariatric Center.

If you arrive for surgery and the Surgeon decides, for your health and safety, not to attempt or complete your surgery, you will be responsible for all expenses including but not limited to, transportation costs, hotel stay costs, lab fees, etc., incurred as a result of the cancellation.  Upon said cancellation, any remaining balance of the 50% of your initial deposit will be refunded to you after all expenses incurred by you are repaid.

 If you cancel your surgery, the deposit can always be applied to the rescheduled surgery or a different surgery with the same Surgeon.

*Should you elect to have medical tourism insurance, the premium is 100% refundable provided you do not cancel within two (2) days prior to the surgery date.
