Patients who are looking for wrist or hand surgery don’t often get to decide based on price point. The quality of their doctor is typically determined by what their insurance will accept, and what referral they receive from their general doctors. This can be frustrating for many patients who are trying to have cost awareness, budget for their medical expenses, and find doctors or surgeons that they feel comfortable with. 

The Problem With Wrist and Hand Surgery

Committing to having surgery, no matter the type is a big medical undertaking for any patient. Whether it is a carpal tunnel surgery or a digital nerve repair surgery in the thumb, it doesn’t matter, the purpose of the surgery is to improve the patient’s quality of life. Insurance coverage and financial ability are two factors that are huge inhibitors when it comes to traditional wrist and hand surgery. 

In fact, traditional wrist and hand surgery options are limited for most patients, and this is the number one roadblock that gets in the way of getting care. 

Cost is one of the biggest challenges for patients who are ready to get the help they need but have uncertainty due to the lack of financial options. The cost of medical care is rising, and this makes it difficult for patients to pull the trigger when it comes to receiving the medical care that they need. 

Let’s say that you are trying to shop around for an in-network surgeon that can perform a wrist fusion surgery. Once you find a doctor that is approved by your insurance network, you will still have to think about co-pays, the overall cost, the surgeon fees, the anesthesia fee, and much more. Bills will trickle in long after you have undergone surgery.

Surgery You Can Rely On

Several brands are opening their doors to provide self-pay elbow arthroscopy options for patients. Due to the number of funds that go to insurers, this model has lower pricing than traditional hospital- or insurance-based healthcare models.

Patients who pay directly for surgery benefit from upfront pricing, lower costs, and exclusive access to surgeons who are dedicated to their craft rather than profit-making.
