Info on cost of septal myectomy

How is expensive is the septal myectomy at Mayo Clinic? I am trying to decide which course of treatment to take and part of my decision will be made on the cost and how much insurance does not cover.

Thank you

    I am not sure we have access to that information. Have you talked to the business people at Mayo Clinic to see if they can help with cost analysis? Thanks Katie

    In 2011, it was paid for by Medicare and the supplemental insurance with a copay of around $1000. It saved my life. I couldn't walk ten feet without holding on. Not anymore. Mayo in Rochester Minnesota was amazing. I was out in record time and flew home on the sixth day. Recovery, because it is open heart, can take several weeks. What a game changer for me though. I highly recommend Mayo. They do thousands a year and my cardiologist said, if you were my wife, I'd go to Mayo. That's why I flew there to do it. Keep me posted on how you are doing. I have literally been there. smile
