  • How much does the Medtronic Morphine Pump cost?

    I am planning on having the pump implanted soon using Medicare. I believe they will cover 80%. I don't know too much about hospital costs or doctor's fees because I get all my treatment at the VA. Can anyone tell me about how much this will cost me, and then what about the cost of drug refills of the pump? Thank you.

    Here is some information about average costs:

    Keep in mind that Medicare will pay their 80% of based on what they reimburse, not what actual charges are, and there may be some parts of the costs that they will not reimburse at all.
