We at Maine Orthopaedic Center want to help you understand what your treatment here is likely to cost. It is difficult to know exactly what the cost will be for any one individual, because reimbursement amounts to a physician by an insurance company are based on rates negotiated with the insurance company, and those rates are different for different insurance plans. Also, how much of the bill you, the patient, are responsible for varies tremendously based on your particular plan’s co-pays and deductibles.
So, while a doctor’s fees are usually only part of the total cost of a medical treatment, knowing that cost is a start, so below are listed the fees we charge for our most commonly performed services, both office services and surgical services. The actual amount paid is typically a fraction of the billed amount.
Of course, the total cost of care, including hospital and other costs, is also very important. Below are listed the total cost (including hospital fees, rehabilitation, etc. for 30 days before and 90 days following the surgery) for our most commonly performed surgical services, and for comparison, the average total cost of the same services when performed by our statewide colleagues*.
