Recent regulations require hospitals and health plans to publish prices of a subset of services. The hospital rule requires publication of “shoppable services,” those that can be scheduled in advance by a consumer. The Transparency in Coverage rule requires a list of 500 items and services to be published. Surgical procedure to decompress herniated vertebra appears on both lists, and there is a standard service package available for it.
A laminotomy removes only a portion of the lamina, the back part of a spinal bone. It carves a hole just big enough to relieve the pressure in a specific spot. This procedure may be performed on the neck or on the lumbar spine.
