How Much Does Angioplasty Cost?

Assessing The Cost Of Angioplasty In USA 

A recent report from WHO says that nearly a million people are suffering from cardiac problems, and more than 35% of them are recommended to go through angioplasty for recovery by doctors, which costs around $6000 to $9000 on average. Therefore, the cost of angioplasty becomes an important factor to discuss before treatment. 

What is the price of angioplasty? Is it within everyone’s budget? What variables influence an angioplasty’s cost? All patients who are referred for angioplasty always have similar questions in mind. Are you curious about the responses to these queries? 

In this blog, we will answer all your questions about the bars of angiogram and angioplasty cost in recent scenarios.

The Angioplasty Cost Based On Several Stages 

Diagnosis And Angiogram Cost

The diagnostic phase of angioplasty is known as angiogram. It is a procedure in which a contrast dye is injected into the blood vessels to address the blocked regions in the heart. It is one of the premium tests for myocardial infarction treatment and costs several dollars depending on the quality and accuracy of the angiogram. 

Moreover, several other tests detect the necessity of angioplasty before conducting real-time surgery. These tests can range from expensive to cheap, depending upon the severity of cases. The average cost of different angioplasty tests is around $1500 to $2000. 

Catheter Price 

The catheter is the most important component in an angioplasty operation. A thin tube is inserted in the blood vessels to open the block and restore the blood flow. Having an advanced manufacturing procedure behind it costs several thousand dollars, depending on the degree of severity. Sometimes, the doctors need to inject multiple catheters to open the block. This can escalate the cost of operation. 

Several types of catheters are used in different types of angioplasty. Therefore, the cost of angioplasty also depends on the type of catheter used. Here is a list of different catheter prices: 

Balloon Catheter: $250 to $350 

Guide Catheter: $200 to $300 

Stent Delivery Catheter: $350 dollars to $400 

Thrombectomy Catheter: $350 to $500 

Cardiologists Fee 

Undoubtedly, angioplasty is a complex operation requiring the best cardiologists and a heart specialist to complete the task safely and successfully. The charges of cardiologists are high in several states and acquire nearly 25 per cent of the whole cost of operation. Therefore, the demand for top health specialists and cardiologists is another crucial factor in deciding the cost of angiograms and angioplasty. 

The location of the hospital also affects the fees of cardiologists. For example, hospitals, mostly the multi-specialty ones, charge comparatively higher than semi-urban hospitals. In premium hospitals, the price of the best cardiologists ranges between $500 to $2000 dollars according to recent surveys.

Angioplasty Cost Based On Several Stages

Cost Based On Different Types Of Angioplasty 

Comparing the severity of cases in heart treatment, several kinds of angioplasty methods exist to treat patients. A general angioplasty operation that includes the intervention of a single catheter to open a block generally incurs lower costs. 

However, if there are multiple blockages and the doctor needs to opt for coronary artery angioplasty or balloon angioplasty, the price may go high. These procedures include the involvement of special medical devices and additional medications therefore the expenses can escalate. 

For example, general angiogram and angioplasty cost around $2500 to $3000. Whereas balloon angioplasty costs around $5000. 

Hospital Facilities And Charges 

Hospital charges and facilities, including room rent, food, and tests, also contribute a significant ratio to the cost of angioplasty. If you opt for a highly specialized hospital with modern technology and facilities, the cost can skyrocket with each day at the hospital. Even the room rent can be chargeable up to several hundred dollars at metro hospitals. 

Furthermore, there are additional costs, especially for angioplasty operations like pre-diagnostic checks, ECG, CT angiography, etc. Therefore, the cost of angioplasty elevates when we compare based on these facilities. 

Medication And Follow-up Care 

The story continues after the surgery. Continuous medication and follow-up care are required to cure the patient and ensure optimum recovery. Medication cost and follow-up depend on the severity of conditions and can range between moderate to high in general cases.

Factors Influencing The Angioplasty Operation Cost

Several factors can influence the cost of angioplasty operations. Let’s have a view on such factors: 

Angioplasty Operation Cost - Factors

Availability Of Insurance 

The cost of angioplasty in with insurance can be reduced several times. 

Location Of The Hospital 

If you are looking for surgery in a metropolitan city, then the cost of angioplasty can fly high. However the same operation may have lower cost parameters in different semi-urban locations. 

Age Of The Patient

According to reports, angioplasty costs also depend on the age group. For an age group of 50+, the costs elevate due to high-risk operations.

How To Reduce Expenses On Angioplasty Cost? 

Looking for a reduction in the cost of angioplasty by compromising the quality can be dangerous. Therefore, you should find better ways to balance the cost which doesn’t hamper the quality of surgery. Here are some tips you can try to implement: 

  • Take health insurance from a trusted healthcare service provider to ensure there is support for your future. The cost of angioplasty in without insurance cases can fly high. 
  • Compare several hospitals before you book an appointment. Find hospitals that provide the best angioplasty in the city at affordable prices. 
  • Consult with your family healthcare provider for recommendations or better quotes for angioplasty surgery. 
  • You can look for financial assistance programs provided by several hospitals.

Conclusion 

In summary, we can say angioplasty is one of the great ways to treat myocardial infarction. At the same time, it can be an expensive treatment for many people. But when it comes to matters of the heart, financial barriers should not be a constraint. Therefore, many reputed hospitals like Advanced Medical Group provide cost-effective angioplasty surgeries to provide a better future for all patients.
