Deviated Septum Surgery Average Cost

Postby skullmonkey714 » Thu Jul 23, 2009 12:01 pm

I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea 3 months ago. The ENT informed me that I have a deviated septum and that's its usually a wise choice to get surgery to fix it. However, I'm pretty sure my insurance wont cover it. I also understand that it most likely wont cure my sleep apnea, but does anybody know what the average cost for out of pocket surgery is?

It's something only your surgeon can answer, but you'll have consults, a hospital bill, surgeon's bill, anesthesiologist (?), and followups. Considering it's not life threatening, I'd probably skip it without insurance.

Although, if your sleep doctor and ENT contacted your insurance and related the surgery to your apnea, maybe it could get covered.
