Additional interventions increase the overall cost to treat:

  • The average geometric mean cost of a hospital outpatient ERCP with stent placement for patients without complications is approximately $3,700 (CY2016 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) Final Rule. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Web site. Published November 13, 2015. Accessed December 14, 2016).
     
  • The average cost of a hospital inpatient ERCP with stent placement for patients without complications is approximately $4,649 (National healthcare payer database, 2015).
     
  • Based on migration data, for every 100 patients with stent placement, the use of GORE® VIABIL® Short Wire Biliary Endoprosthesis will potentially eliminate five device migrations (as compared to the closest competitive option), which is a savings of at least $23,000 (not including the cost of the stent)
