We get inquiries like this everyday. Our first response is that yes, we can help. Being uninsured is not an issue â€“ all of our clients are uninsured. Anyone who does have insurance, doesnâ€™t need us. Actually, thatâ€™s not entirely true. Some policies have a deductible which is higher than the cost at which we are able to provide surgery. If a policy has $15,000 deductible, and if we can provide the same surgery for $10,000, then we can help.
Back to Mr. Smith. If he needs a knee replacement, and is uninsured, the average price of this surgery, across the U.S., is $53,500. Our clients pay $18,800 â€“ a 65% discount. For the most part, our clients are happy with a 65% discount.
Some people though, are furious that the charge is $18,800, after the 65% discount. â€śI told you â€“ Iâ€™m uninsured. I canâ€™t pay anythingâ€ť they say. â€śI need a 100% discountâ€ť.
Unfortunately, we are unable to help these people.
