I have hep c and would like to get a liver biopsy. I don't have insurance. How much does a biopsy cost? Thank You
Response from Dr. Dieterich
The professional fee part that is to the doctor is relatively low. Usually about $200. In fact that is why many doctors have stopped doing them. The hospital part can be the expensive part often many times that. However you can negotiate a lower price with your doctor. You should also check out the prices that radiologists charge, you might be able to get a good deal there too! Good luck! DTD
