The last Holter I had was in 2012. It was billed at $308 and Medicare Advantage paid $95.51.
But it it is done as part of a hospital outpatient clinic and not by the doctors office it will be higher.
But you need to ask in advance what the cost are and work out a payment plan. By default they will charge the "list price" which is much higher than the amount that they will accept from insurance companies. Where is the best place to buy a blood pressure monitor? How much do I have to spend on a good quality one?
You want one that measures on the upper arm, not the wrist.
Amazon is a good place. Omron is a good named brand. And they have one "manual" model that is about $35. It has a bulb that you use to pump it up. But it has the digital sensor and read out as the others. It just lacks the electric pump.
You can also look at Walmart, Wlagreens, CVS, etc. Sometime they have good prices on house brands.
But since you are having a Holter monitor test they suspect that you might have an irregular heart rate. If you do that sometime confuses the home style monitors. Before you buy one talk to your doctor about this.View Thread
