I had it done 3 months ago, and DO have health insurance which covered the procedure- however I recieved my explanation of benefits from my insurance company just this week and it was billed at over 4000$ between the hospital, anesthesia, doctors charge, anesthesiologists charge and recovery room...I had this done in the short stay unit of my local hosptial by my regular Gyn. The whole thing took less than an hour...
My insurance paid all but 50$ of it..
Truthfully though, I hope you read all the experiences on the board about this procedure...some people seem to have had good ones, but I wish Id never had this done! Ive had nothing but bleeding, heavier then before the surgery since the surgery..my periods are heavier and twice as painful- Im now looking at a complete hysterectomy..
is there anyone around here who would know how expensive the Novasure procedure is(if you dont have health insurance...)?
I would truly appreciate your help!
mine will cost me a $500 copay b/c i want to do it in an O.R. rather than in the doctor's office. She said that out of pocket if my insurance didn't cover it was about $500, though, but I can't imagine why it woudn't be more than that, with the hospital fees, anesthesia, etc.
