You should be able to find that information with your carrier so it won't be a surprise.

Call them. At least with my insurance (not Cigna), I had the hospital copay (easily found on the insurance website), doctor’s copay, and anesthesiologist copay. Also know whether you get some surgical follow-ups included with the price of surgery (I got 90 days, but my surgeon’s office kept trying to bill me.). The hospital overcharged me by $150 (not given the discount for being a center of excellence) and the surgeon kept trying to charge me for follow ups, so understanding my insurance likely saved me hundreds of dollars.

I have a surgeon's copay of $200, a $100 per night copay with a max of $500, and no anesthesia copay. I have already paid $40 for my consult, $116 for the EGD, $196 for my surgeon copay for the EGD, $30 for one nutrition appointment, and $30 for my psych eval. You should be able to find the costs of everything in your insurance benefits booklet.

I still have another appointment with my primary for my final nutrition visit then I have to do the nutrition consult with my surgeons office. I'm going to call them next week and see if I can do that between now and my final nutrition appointment so they can submit everything.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
