I honestly don't know. Because the cost varies from insurance company to insurance company and Medicare the costs are discussed with insurance specialists and not the physicians/surgeons.
The IOL estimated cost varies a lot apparently between different areas and between surgeons in the same area. I got cost estimates for several IOL types from three different surgeons/clinics in my area of southern California prior to my right eye cataract surgery a few months ago and the costs varied quite a bit. I learned that some premium clinics add extra premium cost packages that doubles the price to include LASIK touchups, femotlaser assist, etc.
For standard blade surgery and no extras, the prices were more reasonable. The lowest added cost estimates I got for the Symfony IOL was about $1800-1900 in my area, for a Tecnis Toric monofocal IOL (which is what I ended up choosing) the added cost was $1333 in comparison. Those are costs in addition to the standard cataract surgery costs after insurance. The added cost included the extra surgeon fees as well as the IOL cost itself, in my case for the toric IOL is was split about $600 for the IOL and about $700 for the extra surgeon fees.
If $1600 is the total added cost for a Symfony IOL including all extra fees, thats a better price than in my area.
