They can’t tell me how much the surgery will cost. For all intense and purposes I don’t have insurance that will cover the surgery, it is considered elective! Given that fact I need to know how much the bill would be to determine if it is something that I want to do. They can’t tell me the price, including tax title and tag! How can you make a decision without knowing the cost? The frustrating thing for me is that I am going to make a decision not based on the best treatment for me but purely based on economics! Anyway a new splint and a decision of whether to have surgery or not. My first doctor preferred the non operative approach, the other doctor seemed to be pushing to have the surgery.
But I am a contract worker so I if I am not working I don’t get paid, so the true cost is the procedure plus lost work time, arrgh!!
