My insurance paid for pretty much everything in the hospital. It does vary, depending on your coverage. Even the follow-up visit was include in the surgery costs. All pre-op lab tests were paid for.
Yes, if you don't have coverage, get it. If you do have coverage, call your insurance company and get an estimate.
