What a wonderful piece of technology. Thank goodness I have excellent insurance coverage as the total cost is close to $3000. I won't have to make any copays until January as I have maxed out the out of pocket on my plan way back in May. My insurance company has paid about $75,000 in claims for me this year. (About 40,000 was for knee replacement). Next year I don't plan any big surgeries but have some ongoing medical conditions which require testing, etc so expect next year will be another year when the insurance company doesn't make any profit on me. One evening when talking to my insurer, the person on the phone asked when I was going to retire, and I thought wow, they really want to get rid of me.... oh, well. I probably won't retire for a long time as the insurance is so good!!!
