Pacemaker replacement cost
I have an Adapta pm implanted in 2010 and coming up on my first replacement soon. Medtronic told me the battery is encased so it won't be a battery change, but a pm replacement, keeping the same leads. My big concern here is my current cardiologist, who is wonderful, doesn't take my insurance. I tried to switch, but they don't take any of the three insurance providers available where I live. I'm trying to get the medical codes and cost, but does anyone know how much yours cost to replace? I can go back to my previous cardiologist, who is five hours away, but if were talking $20,000 out of pocket vs a five hour drive for insurance coverage, its worth it. I realize every situation is different, but I have no idea of cost. I appreciate any input while we try and get answers from the doctor and insurance company!
