Medicare coverage question regarding Lithotripsy stone removal
My husband has Medicare and a supplemental insurance. He has been told he needs to go and have a large kidney stone broken up at the Stone Institute of the Carolinas, this is a huge semi truck that services several hospitals for this proceedure, but we are concerned if this will be covered by Medicare and our supplemental insurance. We cannot afford to end up with some huge medical bill so if anyone has any experience with this kind of proceedure please share what you ended up paying out of pocket. I'd call the places but they are closed today and his proceedure is for tomorrow. I personally feel he is worrying about everything right now because he's never had any kind of surgery or medical work but if I can help to ease him regarding this one issue it would be wonderful.
