Deflate the Healthcare Bubble!
I recently spoke to a colleague who needs a cystoscopy for stone retrieval and/or stent placement.
Local hospital quote is $25,000 for just use of facility, not counting anesthesia & urologist’s fee; with estimated patient responsibility of $5,000.
@Surgery Center of Oklahoma same procedure is $3,600 INCLUDING anesthesia & surgeon’s fee! Surgery Center Of Oklahoma
Suggested she use the extra $1,400 to pay for her trip to OK City and still save a few hundred dollars!
