What does an echocardiogram cost?


Posted by pnorbe

I'd like to know if I am healthy enough to train for a 100 mile running event and I last ran 100 miles at age 54, 3 years ago.

I assume the costs vary among locations.

Here's a link showing how much an HMO in Massachusetts will pay for a variety of procedures. In this case, an echocardiogram plus reading by a specialist would cost $262 - $561 (there's a description link explaining why there's a range). https://www.harvardpilgrim.org/portal/page?_pageid=253,192924&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL

For what it's worth, I Googled the phrase "echocardiogram cost." You might find info on costs in your location with a more focused search.

Hope this helps.
