Cost Factor: Cataract Surgery Location
While you might not have a lot of choice over the type of procedure you need, you can determine where you have your procedure.
Did you know that the same medical procedure can be two to three times more expensive at one facility when compared to another with no difference in quality?
It is more cost-efficient to have cataract surgery at an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) rather than in a hospital. ASCs are typically able to perform your procedure at the same high level of care with the same specialized attention, or even better, but at a lower cost – an especially nice advantage if you have a copay.
