    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?
