Even with insurance, you will likely be responsible for some of the cost of your procedure and hospitalization before surgery and during recovery. Your surgeon will probably not have a figure for all of the costs surrounding your surgery, but should be able to tell you what his or her fee is and what it covers. For instance, will it cover the number of follow-up consultations the doctor will provide? This is a question for your insurance company or healthcare plan provider, too. If you are covered by Medicare, call 1-800-MEDICARE to find out your share of the surgery’s costs.
