Free Joint Replacement Surgery

Recommended Posts

Gregory Matthews

SDA hospital surgeons are offering free joint replacement surgery to six people this month.  See:

https://atoday.org/surgeons-at-denver-based-adventist-hospitals-offer-free-joint-replacements-for-holidays/

My question:  Are the hospitals offering free care, or is it just the surgeons who are providing free care.  The article seems to say it is totally free, but that is not as explicit as I like.  E.G.  Even the actual joint that is installed is not cheap.

"Free" usually doesnt mean free these days. I imagine one would have to call the hospital for details, but there is likely some portion for the patient to pay. It looks to me like the surgeons are waiving their fees, but its possible there is more discount than that.
