Re: How much does an echocardiogram cost?

I have no insurance and will have to pay for everything myself. I think I probably should get the echocardiogram, in case I have serious regurgutation. For that matter, how much does it cost if you have to get your MV replaced?

Dear KB,

I don't know exactly but a standard echocardiogram is probably between $200 and $400.  Surgery can cost thousands of dollars.  Why do you think you need an echo?
