In brief: Tech + Pro

The equipment and those that run it and plan your treatment and deliver it daily are covered as a medicare technical charge.
The doctor the perscibes and monitors is a second aspect. Together technical and professional charges. Each have cpt - codes for charges. The tech charge pays salaries and depreciation costs for equipment. Doc fees for their expertise.

In brief: Expensive in USA

The cost is variable and depends on both the complexity of the treatment and the duration over which the treatment is delivered.
Ask the financial counselor at the clinic to give you an estimate in your case.

In brief: Still expensive

External beam radiation costs anywhere from $100-200 per simple treatments and up to $400-700 for more complex typical treatments.
Some very specialized procedures cost between $2000-5000 per treatment. Since most course of radiation require multiple weeks of daily treatments it can get very expensive.
