How Much Does a Fibroid Embolization Cost?

December 11th, 2009

What is the Cost of an Embolization?

The cost of embolization differs upon prices set by individual physicians and coverage by way of various insurance providers.  Because of these variations, it is not possible to provide a fixed cost for the embolization procedure.   However, the cost of UAE is generally accepted by all insurance providers.  

Uterine Fibroid Embolization is a cost effective alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy. When comparing hysterectomy, myomectomy and UFE, an article in the American Journal of Gynecology found that UFE cost 12% less than a hysterectomy and 8% less than a myomectomy. The numbers may prove even greater when considering both direct medical costs as well as hidden costs of the fibroid treatment process.

Whereas most procedures take away time from family and work due to  longer recovery periods of up to 6 weeks, UFE limits recovery time to no more than one week, allowing the patient to get back to their daily activities much quicker-including their jobs. 

To learn more about UFE and whether it is the right choice for you, please call 866-362-6463.  One of our health professionals will be able to answer your questions regarding UFE and can do a quick insurance verification check if you are wondering whether UFE is covered under your insurance provider.
