What will my insurance pay?
If you have insurance, your insurance company can help you get an estimate for what you will pay for a specific procedure. Your insurance company is a good place to start when determining out of pocket costs in advance because it will know your specific coverage, benefits, deductibles and co-pays. Some insurance companies offer online tools for estimates while others have customer service numbers to call for you to determine the cost.
