Want to have therapy in Mayo clinic for my Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Posted by Li @li, Apr 28, 2012

Holle Simon,
Greeting from Beijing, China! I am a patient with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). And I am advised by Chinese doctors that I should have septal reduction therapy. I know Mayo clinic Departments in Minnesota is one of the best hospitals for HCM in the world. Therefore, I would like to ask what is the estimated fee for the in-hospital process of myectomy and alcohol spetal ablation respectively? As my insurance will not cover the medical cost in US. I own may need to pay it. For saving the cost, can I have some tests done in Beijing, then I can bring the report/image to Mayo? E.g. heart MRI, Coronal Artery Angiography. I noted that there is one contact number 507-284-4024 for estimating the fee. Is there any email address that I can send my question? Thanks a lot in advance!

The international Patients department would be the best place to start. They can help answer your questions about cost of treatment and financing for non-US patients. I encourage you to contact them.

My total itemized bill was $64,660 but I don’t see the surgeon’s bill.
