Thread: How much do these surgeries actually cost?

    Default How much do these surgeries actually cost?

    Luckily we had insurance pay for ours but I have no idea what the bill was. Does anyone have any idea how much the surgery itself cost? Violet had right coronal with orbital advancement.

    Cameron had CVR and the bill was roughly $58,000 and I'm not sure if that included the surgeons fees. If not, tack on aother $19,000.

    I think that Zach's cost between $50,000 and $75,000.

    I am so thankful for our healthcare system right now, I never have seen a bill

    I had to pay for my food & even then the hospitals parents room had bread, milk, fruit and snacks for the parents.

    I know there are a lot of gripes with the NHS but seeing everyone's long drawn out insurance appeals and huge bills makes me very thankful indeed that I don't have that to worry about on top of everything else.
