A new study suggests that heart surgery is as much as $2,400 more expensive than you might think.
And that’s a big jump when you consider the cost of treatment.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that for a large group of patients, the average price of heart surgery was $4,700.
That’s $3,600 more than what the average person pays for a coronary bypass, an operation that’s the opposite of what heart surgery entails.
The study, which was based on data from Medicare Part D, looked at Medicare Part A and Part D plans in the state of California, as well as Medicaid, Medicaid Advantage, and CHIP.
The average cost of heart bypass surgery in California is $2.9 million, according to the study.
This is the same price as the average cost for a chest surgery, according a 2016 study by the American Heart Association, which looked at data from insurance companies.
That’s a significant jump, according the study’s authors, Dr. Richard Miller, the chief of the division of cardiology at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Francisco, and Dr. Stephen Loomis, a cardiologist at the University of California San Francisco.
They found that in 2016, patients who had been diagnosed with a heart attack could expect to pay $2 million to $4 million more for their heart surgery.
This is a huge jump, Miller told The Verge.
That means a heart transplant would cost $5 million to a patient who had a heart condition, $8 million to the patient with heart problems, and $15 million to someone with a pulmonary condition.
“This is an extremely significant number of dollars,” Miller said.
And for some patients, that price tag could mean the difference between surviving a heart surgery and losing their life.
In a 2016 paper in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Miller and Loomus reviewed data from more than 12,000 patients with coronary artery disease who had had heart surgery over a two-year period.
In the most expensive group, patients with high risk factors, like a family history of heart disease or diabetes, were more likely to need heart surgery than others, Miller said in an interview.
For example, a patient with high cholesterol had a chance of needing a heart bypass if they had hypertension, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
But a patient in this group could have the same chance of getting a heart operation if they didn’t have any of these risk factors.
The researchers found that patients who were more at high risk for cardiovascular disease were more than twice as likely to require heart surgery as those with a low risk of heart attack.
For people with coronary arteries, heart bypass is usually a major procedure, but it can be complicated.
Heart valve replacements can cost as much or more than the heart surgery, depending on the type of valve replacement and the age of the patient.
There’s no set standard price for a valve replacement, so there’s no standard list of recommended prices.
It’s also unclear how many patients would benefit from having their valve replaced.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Miller told the New York Times.
“We’ve seen heart bypass rates go up and down, and we don’t know the reasons for that.
It could be the same patient that gets a high-risk heart condition or has high blood cholesterol, but there could also be a number of factors.
We don’t have a good idea of what those factors are.”
