Cost of Cataract Surgery in Nebraska

Cataracts are a common problem that occurs with age. Cataracts are most common in patients over the age of 60, though they can happen as early as 40. Corrective eyewear can provide a minimal amount of assistance with this problem. Cataract surgery is a much better answer for individuals who have compromised vision from this problem. Cataracts make vision very cloudy. These often worsen with time until they make it very difficult for the patient to see. You may experience cataracts in one eye or both. Patients are often concerned about the cost of cataract surgery in Nebraska. There are many factors that will affect the price for your surgery.

The average cost of cataract surgery in Nebraska is $3,900. This outpatient procedure is more affordable when performed at an ambulatory surgical center than it is at a hospital. As with any surgical procedure, you are paying for the surgeon, the facility, and the anesthesia. Cataract surgery requires local anesthesia so patients don't feel the procedure. The eye area is numbed and the eye's lens is removed. An artificial lens is inserted into the eye surgically. There are several different options with this lens. This will also affect the price. A high tech lens will cost more than a standard option.

Your insurance plan will play a major role in the cost of cataract surgery in Nebraska. You should always choose a provider and facility that are covered by your plan. Insurance companies are able to negotiate a lower cost for cataract surgery than what you would receive on your own. With Medicaid, you will typically pay only about a third of the total cost for uninsured patients. Consult with your insurance provider and your surgeon to determine how much your surgery will cost. Keep in mind that all prices are quoted per eye. If you have cataracts in both eyes, you will need to double the estimated costs involved.

If you're still having trouble covering the cost of cataract surgery in Nebraska, your eye care provider may offer a program such as Care Credit. This type of financing acts like a credit card for eye care procedures. You will be able to pay your portion of the surgical costs in small, manageable payments over time. If you live in a rural area of Nebraska, one final concern will be the location of the surgical center. You will need to have a ride home after the procedure. If you live far from the surgical center, you may want to consider staying overnight in the city so you can rest after your procedure.
