I just received my statement from my insurance company about my surgery.
6 days in hospital- $110,324
2 surgeries-anesthesia-$2710
3 surgeons-$21,304
Thank God for great insurance, my cost $125


  • Bama fan that means you should pay more for the ND service, bandages and such! ND service ROCKS!!~ REally you should have paid much more. LOL But on are serious note- thank you for the figure, my mother was just asking me about how much I thought my surgery was!
    Your friend the big ND fan!!~
  • WHY healthcare cost is out of control. I am having a L4/5 Fusion on Nov. 16th and I am so thankful for my insurance,only requires a $100 copay for hospital stays and a $1250 total out of pocket. I am near that out of pocket, due to the conservative treatments, facet inj, MRI, discogram, etc. I know how fortunate I am. I have UHC and they require very few authorizations before procedures. I am wondering what the total cost will be once it is all said and done.
  • I looked out my hospital room to the left and there was Bryant Denny Stadium, straight ahead was Denny Chimes and to the right was the Paul Bryant Museum. I ahve already told you the only thing you can get with ND on it in Bama is toilet paper and it ain't worth 2 cents. LOL Your Bama friend!
  • Wishing you a speedy recovery!!!!

    I can't believe you only paid $125. Is is a ppo or hmo?
