Cost for a Heart Operation

Recommended Posts


 Yesterday I talk to my neighbor who had an heart operation. He got the bill and here is the cost of it, the total was $130,000, and he broken down: Here it goes:


1. 10 days in the hospital                      $27,000

2. Operation                                               $26,000         

3. Work done before the operation  $15,000

4. Pharmacy                                               $14,000

5. Operator                                                 $10,600 - Plus he did 4 operations that day, so he probably made $50,000 that same day.

6, Anesthesia                                               $7,000

7. Medical Supplies                                  $7,000

8. Lab                                                             $5,000

9. Ex-Rays                                                     $2,000

Total =                                                      $113,000


 So, how about the other $17,000.? In my case is would be filling my veins with chocolate.

Is this personal cost or it will be absorbed by the health care system? 

Looks like the hospital billing cost. If it is covered under the Medicare program Medicare will cover it for about 1/5 to 1/3 that sum with little or no cost to the patient.

$130,000 seems cheap, especially since they actually did surgery.


I was recently treated with the Cyberknife. It is not "surgery", it is radiation and the total billed came to a little over $253,000
