NA cost

Can anyone tell me the cost of NA? I am sure insurance does not cover it, but would be worth it rather than surgery. Thanks for any information.

NA Cost

I had the NA procedure by Dr. Easton on 1/5/04. The cost was $2000, which I paid (Master Card) at the time of the procedure. I had one NA performed on my left ring finger, one between the ring finger and the pinkie, and two in my left palm. My insurance company is Blue Cross/Blue Shield and they reimbursed me $286.37 after the $250 deductable. In addition, I just received a bill for $42 for the night time splint. Although I was a little disapointed by the amount BC/BS covered I would do it again if I had to pay the entire bill.

Win a free trip to Paris

I had two secessions with Dr Lermusiaux and the cost was $180. He did more than the $2000 secession in the previous posting. The difference paid for my trip to Paris. You too can enjoy this free trip.

Insurance coverage

Dr. Eaton did NA on my bent little finger. He charged $700, but I was not charged for the night splint. My insurance paid $300 so I was out of pocket $400. A great bargain I would say. I will go back to Dr. Eaton as soon as I need NA again.

Insurance coverage

I just got insurance money for work Dr. Eaton did last February. I have Blue Cross. The insurance company payed $160 of the $700 bill. Well, it's better that a sharp stick in the eye anyway.

NA cost/ insurance

Insurance coverage is different for Canadians then Americans. If you are Canadian I think you would have to contact your provincial health plan then get permission to leave the country.

I tried a number of years ago to get ohip to pay but they told me there is a procedure here than can take care of DC so I don't have to leave the province or country - surgery.

I don't know if this would be there response now...and will consider approaching them again when the time comes.

NA COST/INSURANCE

I had NA on one finger and palm by Dr. Zidel in January, with it going from 35 degrees to 10 degrees, with the help of a splint. The total cost to me was $62. Dr. Zidel takes Blue Cross, Dr. Eaton does not. This should be considered when choosing Dr. Zidel or Dr. Eaton. Dr. Zidel took 2 hours, with Dr. Eaton guiding the procedure for about 1/2 hour. From the bill, I think that Dr. Zidel received $468+$62 and Dr. Eaton $0. This seems extremely reasonable to me. Also, the outcome was very good.
