Procedure for Sonata For Fibroid Removal

Hi All,
I need advice on how much does Sonata Surgery cost in Switzerland. Approximately. I have a surgery scheduled in Jan. I asked my insurance, they have no clue about the cost neither does the hospital as well, .
Has anyone done Sonata Surgery for Fibroid removal in Switzerland.
Thanks

Re: Procedure for Sonata For Fibroid Removal

Welcome to the Forum.

If the surgery is scheduled, then surely the hospital has a procedure code for it. Hospitals don't randomly do surgeries without knowing how much it will cost. Insurances don't pre-approve paying for surgeries without knowing the cost.

This clinic seems to do the procedure, maybe call them and ask for a quote?

Keep in mind that any surgery is subject to your franchise/deductible and any co-payment. Given that we're only 17 days into January you probably haven't maxed those out yet. So you will probably have some out-of-pocket costs.

Good luck, both with the surgery and sorting payment.

Edit - I've not had the surgery and I don't know anything about the clinic I linked. I found them with a Google search.

I don't know if it's the same for surgery, but when I was in hospital, there was a daily charge, and the daily charge covered everything... ie MRI scans, CT Scans, procedures and even an helicopter transfer between hospitals. so regardless of what treatment I had each day, the charge was the same. (Accident not illness if that makes a difference).

Yes, it is very possible that the doctors and nurses do not know much about the costs.

Typically, the bill for a hospital stay is sent directly from the hospital to the medical insurer, which pays the hospital directly. The insurer pays the entire bill, and then sends you an account for any parts they do not cover. You must then pay that remaining slice to the insurance company, and not the hospital.

But every hospital has an office. You could phone there and ask to speak to the accounts department, and ask them to send you a copy of the bill. If you are not helped when you phone, remember that such an office is likely to be staffed by several people, so just call back the next day and you have a good chance that you'll speak to someone else.

If phonecalls don't work, write them a letter. In that letter, supply as many details as possible, dates, name, including your insurance number, so they can find you in the system.

Edit: Oh, I've re-read. I thought you had already had the surgery. If it is still in the future, you could still ask the accounts office to give you an approximate amount, but for that you may need to know the medical name of the procedure, and how long your doctor told you that you're likely to be in hospital. They won't know the definite amount until you leave hospital.
