Cleveland Clinic - Post Surgery Information

Hi - looks like I need extractions and want to plan out the best place at my age to get 2 done. Being Canadian this is out of pocket. If any of you have paid to go to Cleveland for surgery, can you send me a message so I can start planning what is feasible before I get my heart set on it?  I realize you may not want to post it directly.  I really appreciate it.


Cleveland Clinic Costs

Unfortunately, I do not have the info you are seeking. However, for what it is worth this is what I could find. I hope this is helpful?

There is more info here than what you will likely need. But in any case, the Cleveland Clinic does have a responsibility to provide you with a cost estimate if you request it. In case you are unable to navigate through all the info on-line, you can call their main number and request to speak to "A Patient Financial Advocate". The operator may ask you to setup an appointment time to speak with one or they may connect you directly. The CC main number is: 800.223.2273 

I copied this from the CC website:,or%20create%20your%20own%20estimate.

Right to Receive a Good Faith Estimate

If you do not have health insurance or are not using it, you have the right to receive a good faith estimate for the cost of your services. You can request a good faith estimate at any time. To request one, contact a Patient Financial Advocate or create your own estimate.

Here is the url for schedulling an appointment with a patient financial advocate:,64018110,64018111,64018112,64018113,64018114,64018701&vt=553&_gl=1*19515r2*_ga*MTAyMzc5MTQxMS4xNjkzNDk3NTQ0*_ga_HWJ092SPKP*MTY5OTQ2NTMyOC4xOS4xLjE2OTk0NjcyNTIuMC4wLjA.

Here in the U.S. we use CPT codes for billing procedures that may be helpful, but it is likely financial assistance will already know them. Just for your info, I've listed them below.

Also, here is the definition of CPT:

Current Procedural Terminology

The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes offer doctors and health care professionals a uniform language for coding medical services and procedures to streamline reporting, increase accuracy and efficiency.

Here are the CPT codes for the procedure

CPT Code 33235 - Multiple Lead Removal

CPT Code 33233 - Generator Removal

CPT Code 33208 - New dual chamber generator and leads

If I can assist in any way please don't hesitate to PM me.
