Costs of Treatment

Doctors often do not know how much a procedure or course of treatment will cost, but they can usually direct you to the people who have the information, such as:

  • A staff person in their office.
  • The hospital billing department.
  • A pharmacist.

Ask your doctor about any hidden costs involved in the procedure or treatment (follow-up visits, anesthesiologist fees).

  • Is there anything you can do to reduce the cost?
  • Are there any less expensive options?

Review your health plan:

  • Will your medical insurance cover the cost of treatment?
  • Do you need a second opinion or preapproval before this treatment will be covered?
