Cost of Angioplasty

Knowing how much angioplasty costs is enough to give you a heart attack. I've been searching the Internet for the cost of angioplasty in the Philippines, in the hopes of finding a cheaper alternative, perhaps a charitable institution that does it for free. Nothing. I decided to do my own research and called The Medical City and The Philippine Heart Center to inquire. Here are the rates:

The Medical City

Angiogram costs P50,000 (procedure alone)
Angioplasty costs P300,000 (procedure alone) - a bare stent costs P80,000; a drug-eluding stent costs P120,000
PF for cardiologist costs P150,000 and up - usually they are two (so rate times two).
Bypass surgery costs P1 Million and up (all in all)

The Philippine Heart Center offers the ff packages:

For Angiogram (3-day stay):
Private Room = P60,200 (inclusive of doctor's PF)
Semi-Private Room = P52,000 (inclusive of doctor's PF)
Ward = P42,000 (inclusive of doctor's PF)

For Bypass Surgery (8-day stay):
Private Room = P617,480 (inclusive of doctor's PF)
Semi-Private Room = P494,322 (inclusive of doctor's PF)
Ward = P402,600 (inclusive of doctor's PF)

If you avail of the package, you need to pay the full amount upon admission. There will also be no discount from Philhealth and for senior citizens.

If you do not avail of the package, you need to pay P120K deposit for bypass surgery, and P150K deposit for Angioplasty upon admission to The Philippine Heart Center.

*Rates as of March 28, 2008

This information is very, very helpful. I have arranged for an angiogram next week and will be in hospital for a total of three days, barring any complications. Thankfully, we are quoted still the same rate for a private room package: P60,200.00. I expect some minor additional charges. I will post my actual experience in your blog. God bless you!
