My husband is getting a liver biopsy in two weeks but his clinic won't be able to give us a price quote on the procedure. They told us to call the Hospital where he's getting it at but I always get the answer machine when I call the hospital business phone number. I'm trying to find out the cost of the procedure so I can talk to my insurance to see how much they will cover and how much we have to pay. Can someone give me an estimate of how much a liver biopsy cost (including doctor's fee and hospital fee)? Thank you.
My first one was around $4000 (insurance paid their rate) - my 2nd one at a different hospital was around $6000 (clinical trial picked up the tab) - but that should give you a ball-park. I believe these are total charges - i.e. hospital incidentals, surgeon's (radiologist) fees, etc.
