In brief: It depends
The cost will depend on your insurance carrier. The hospitals typically bill around $40-$50, 000 for the entire procedure and hospitalization.

What i found is that open heart surgery costs vary widely from the average 'list price' of $125k to the average negotiated price of over $37k (this was for a population of 8808 patients in 912 hospitals).
Since the surgeon charges separately from the hospital, and hospital charges depend on the number of days and the intensity of care, the price could vary widely. Call your insurance or hospital.
