Covered by insurance: Indicated hip arthroscopy is usually covered by insurance. The total cost is highly variable depending upon what exactly is the nature of the hip problem and depending upon what exactly is being done at surgery. Definitely discuss this issue with your surgeon's billing office and your insurance carrier ahead of surgery.

Covered by insurance: In most cases the procedure is covered by insurance. Codes exist for most of the main procedures that are performed. Some portions of the procedure are "unlisted" and patients sometimes need to pay this up front and then work with the insurance to pay this back to patient directly.
