Depends: The answer depends on where you live and what the particulars are about your case. Generally you will need to pay for the facility where your procedure is done, the surgeon, and the anesthesiologist. I recommend you call all of the people involved to ask them what they anticipate the charges to be. Often you can get a discount by paying cash.
