Paying for Surgery
The total cost of any surgery includes many different bills:
- Your surgeon can tell you how much he or she charges.
- You may also be billed by other doctors, such as the anesthesiologist.
- There will be hospital charges as well. To find out what the hospital will charge, call the hospital's business office.
Contact your insurance company before your procedure to find out how much of the surgery costs you will be responsible for paying.
