Bumrungrad International Hospital Makes Treatment Costs Available to Public - Bumrungrad International Offers Free Online Access to Actual Costs of 45 Procedures
Date:10/3/2008

ents want to get at least an approximate idea in advance, to help them select a hospital and plan for the costs. We wanted to be transparent and helpful in this regard, and we think the way to do that is simply to show what our patients actually paid."

Created by an in-house team of developers and available free to the public on http://www.bumrungrad.com/index-inter.aspx [Bumrungrad's website __title__ Bumrungrad International Hospital - World-class Bangkok Hospital in Thailand], REALCOST lists 45 procedures -- surgeries such as appendectomy, heart bypass, hysterectomy, and knee replacement, and diagnostic procedures such as capsule endoscopy and colonoscopy.

A website that helps uninsured Americans estimate US hospital costs shows the average cost of a hip replacement as $39,299 in the U.S.

"Most patients will fall somewhere in the middle," says Banner. "We exclude both the highest and the lowest 25% from the results. Those cases are not typical so it would be misleading to suggest that your surgery would cost as much or as little as that. Of course, after you are evaluated by our specialists, we provide a
