What Factors Might Affect The Cost Of My Hernia Repair?
Multiple factors can affect the cost of your hernia repair. In general, there are 4 factors that may impact your medical fees, they are:
Complexity of Case – If your condition is diagnosed to have complications, it can result in an increase in the medical fees as more procedures may be necessary to ensure that your surgery is successfully completed.
Inpatient or Outpatient — If your hernia surgery requires you to undergo warding to observe your recovery, it can affect your medical fees. Having a hernia repair done as an inpatient case will likely cost more than an outpatient procedure. Speak to our team to understand if your treatment requires you to be warded.
Insured or Uninsured — The price of hernia repair surgery can vary between insurance providers. In some cases, it may even be received as a fully covered benefit with no out-of-pocket costs to you at all!
Choice of Hospital – when you are deciding between a government hospital or private hospital, the cost of the entire surgery will vary.
