Prolia | Boynton Beach, FL
Prolia® is one option used here at Surfside Non-Surgical Orthopedics for osteoporosis and is a unique case in terms of billing that deserves special mention. There are two possible ways to bill Prolia®. One that results in significant cost to the patient, which is often in the hundreds of dollars range, and the other which typically cost the patient zero dollars. As you can imagine the method that results in no cost to the patient requires extra work, hassle, and financial outlay on the part of the physician. Here at Surfside Non-Surgical Orthopedics we feel that the extra hassle is worth it if the decreased patient cost results in more patients receiving optimal care. For 99% of our patients Prolia® is no cost to them.
Prolia® is a prescription medicine used to treat osteoporosis in women and men who are at high risk for fracture, meaning have had a fracture related to osteoporosis, or who have multiple risk factors for fracture or cannot use another osteoporosis medicine or other osteoporosis medicines did not work well. It is an injection every six months.
