However, at least then you will hopefully be cured, so it is always money well spent.



A pacemaker, or small defibrillator, can easily save a life, but it is expensive to have one fitted. The cost of having one installed in your body is well over $100,000 and of course you then have to hope that it does what it is supposed to do at those all important moments.


This is a procedure where there is an incision made in the windpipe to help somebody breathe. A tracheostomy is when somebody needs to breathe like this over an extended period of time and you need to stay in intensive care while the body gets used to it. The price? $200,000


4.Kidney transplant

A kidney transplant is going to cost in the region of $270,000 and this seems a lot of money considering they are not in hospital for long. However, you only require this if both kidneys are not working.

7.Heart and lung transplant

A heart and lung transplant is a major operation, so you will not be shocked to discover that it will cost around $1.2 million. Luckily for insurance companies there are not a lot of people that require it.


8.Heart transplant

As you would expect, a heart transplant is going to set you back quite a lot of money. You should not expect a lot of change from $1 million for this procedure, but then it is giving you a new lease of life.

9.Lung transplant

10.Bone marrow transplant
