On October 22nd I have a lumbar surgery scheduled (my fourth spinal surgery in 2009) and the doctor sent me pre-surgery instructions. There was a letter saying they would like to use rhBMP but that it's "very expensive," and insurance my not cover it so I may receive a separate bill for it.
I don't know what dollar range he's even talking about. "Very Expensive," to me isn't much right now but who knows what range he's talking about. I searched the internet but can't find anything. Does anyone out there ha ballpark idea or even GUESS of what rhBMP cost?????
I have a doctor's appointment next week but would really like to have some idea beforehand. Thanks so much.....
