The list price on my 39 zaps of SRT were almost $3,000 a piece, and that did not count the planning, etc. that goes along with it. So that would be almost 120k just for the zaps. I don't know what they settled for, all I know, is I never had to pay a cent out of pocket for the SRT, not even a single co-pay.
Also, we had the Aflac cancer insurance, they wish they never knew me at this point, they paid us $300 per day per zap or each of the 39 zaps, that was close to 12,000 tax free and in our pockets. Least I got something for my trouble.
10 years ago when I had the mouth/throat radiation, it was much more expensive, it was well over $5,000 per day.
