How Much Will It Cost

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.
