One of my friends (in the U.S.) needs a bi-lateral hernia operation.
He doesn't have any insurance.
Does anyone, who may have had this done, or know of someone, know how much the operation cost without the insurance paying it's part?
My friend accepted a settlement from his company of $15,000 and by getting this settlement he waived medical care. So, he's thinking he'll be able to have the operation and have money left over. I'm thinking that it's probably pretty expensive to have done without insurance.
Just thought I'd ask in the odd chance that someone would know.
