COSTS AT A GLANCE

Disc Surgery cost:

  • For patients not covered by health insurance, herniated disc surgery can cost between $20,000 and $50,000 or more, including the surgeon's fee, anesthesiologist, and facility fee.  A minimally invasive outpatient microdiscectomy would typically fall on the lower end, while an inpatient open discectomy with a hospital stay would fall on the higher end.

  • Herniated disc surgery typically is covered by health insurance if ordered by a doctor.  According to eSpine.com, the website of a Los Angeles-based surgeon, most insurance plans will cover a spinal surgery.  Medicare generally covers herniated disc surgery.

  • For patients covered by insurance, assuming the deductible has been met, typical out-of-pocket costs would consist of coinsurance of between 10 and 40 percent of the procedure, for a total of $2,000 or more, up to the yearly out-of-pocket maximum.

Lumbar Fusion cost:

  • $150,000-$200,000 for surgery costs and 3 day stay in the hospital.

Chiropractic cost:

  • Symptom relief, Low back and neck pain = Very low
