As of 2015, the typical fair cost for spinal fusion surgery is approximately $39,820, according to Healthcare Bluebook. This estimate is based on six days of hospital admission, physician's fees and the costs of anesthesia.
The total six-day hospital stay estimate of $34,990 can be increased or decreased by $1,800 per day to adjust for differences in an individual's expected stay, Healthcare Bluebook explains. A typical physician's fee for both the procedure and postoperative care is roughly $3,109, and anesthesia for an average surgery time of just over four hours costs around $1,721. Prices vary depending on the health network providing the spinal fusion, and insurance companies cover various amounts, depending on each plan. People without health insurance may be eligible for discounts, depending on the circumstances.
