Cost of hyperbarric Treatment

Post by Fainn » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:13 am

So they want to saturate my body with oxygen for 20 days at 2 hours at a time, blowing up my blood vessels like a balloon. Because we are paying in cash, they lowered it by nearly half. Total cost would be $5,100 and we can pay $100 a month. But not sure how much we would have to put down to begin with.

Looks very hopeful at least.

Going in uninsured and learning to negotiate terms isn’t a bad way to go sometimes. Of course you have a pre condition at the moment so that is a bump in the road, but have you considered joining a “health cost sharing” plan?

There are others out there and I know people who really like it, and use it! But they they will often pitch in for special needs beyond what members are required or guaranteed.

It has been quite a while since CPS members pitched in to help a guy.

What say, you guys?

Glad you are making practical headway into getting the treatment done. Sounds optimistic

You mean you have to quit the pipe, too? That's too big a sacrifice.

Good news. My fingers are doing so well that I may not need all 20 treatments.
