My 3 FSR Linac total costs from diag thru treatment
« on: May 12, 2014, 10:06:33 am »
Reposting this here from my Radiation thread.

OK so here is my AN medical expense breakdown, hope it helps someone else gain info on the costs of treatment here in Ohio at the Mayfield Clinic, UC and Precision Radiotherapy in West Chester, Ohio. My two Dr. were Dr. Ron Warnick and Dr. John Breneman partnering for my treatment. Hope it's not too hard to follow! Insurance was/is United Health Care and the Mayfield Clinic contacted and acquired the insurance approval.

My AN Medical Expense breakdown:

*First MRI with and without contrast that discovered it:
$895.86 - paid out of pocket to PDI Dayton
$229.37 – paid out of pocket to Kettering Network radiologists

*First Office Appt, Radiologist Dr. John C. Breneman:
$438 - minusUnited Healthcare insurance adj of $183.70 =

At this point after meeting all three and praying about it plus discussing with wife I decided on 3 FSR radiosurgery.

$1836.00 – minus United Healthcare insurance adj of $1032.32 and Ins payment of $642.95 =

Total out of pocket/HSA expenses paid:

$5840.90


So, all in all not cheap if you have a high deductible plan like me, but not stupid expensive like I've seen some quoted around here. Adding up all expenses = approx $32500 with no adjustments or reductions of any kind. I believe those without insurance could get treatment for much less than $32k from these doctors imo.
