The Cost of Treating Hemorrhoids

What You Can Expect to Pay: Insurance, Healing, What’s Really the Most Affordable Option?

One of the things people suffering from hemorrhoids should consider is the actual cost of hemorrhoid treatment. Whether you have medical insurance coverage that covers the cost of physician administered hemorrhoid treatment, or you’re paying for over-the-counter ointments out of your own pocket, it’s good to know ahead of time what kind of financial impact hemorrhoids can have for you.

Can you afford hemorrhoid treatment?

With an estimated 75% of all adults expected to experience hemorrhoids at some time in their life, most of the population will look into treatment at some point. Choosing not to treat your hemorrhoids may be an option for a limited period of time, but hemorrhoids rarely go away on their own. And, in addition to the irritating and painful symptoms, hemorrhoids can get worse, to the point that non-surgical treatment is no longer an option. This can lead to more serious concerns that may result in additional medical costs.

The cost of ineffective hemorrhoid treatments

Unfortunately, there is a lot of information available online that purports to cure your hemorrhoids, including DIY hemorrhoid treatments and all-natural hemorrhoid treatments. While some people may experience a minor reprieve from their hemorrhoid symptoms, these treatments are rarely effective for the long term, and often result in unnecessary expenses as you continue treating the symptoms instead of the actual hemorrhoid.

Financial and opportunity costs

There are a number of well-documented hemorrhoid removal options currently available, some of which use surgical solutions to treat your hemorrhoids, as well as non-surgical options, such as rubber band ligation. Traditional surgical solutions typically require a strict regimen before and after your surgery, and usually result in extended downtime while you recover from the procedure.

Rubber band ligation, such as the CRH O’Regan, can be a cost-effective, permanent hemorrhoid treatment. The CRH O’Regan System is a superior method for hemorrhoid banding, can be completed in less than one minute by a trained physician, and requires no downtime. In addition, the CRH System is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare, so often there is little out-of-pocket expense.

Not only is the CRH System a financially smart treatment, it’s one of the fastest, safest, most effective and comfortable hemorrhoid treatment solutions available.
