Answers:
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) set the standard allowance schedule upon which all other insurances select their fees. These fees are public record. If you know any procedure code (CPT code) you can look them up here:

There are several surgical treatments for trigger finger. One is call a "tendon sheath incision" (CPT 26055).
CMS values CPT 26055 at ~$540.

Just about every other insurer (except medicaid) will pay more for a procedure than CMS, so surgeons and institutions will charge 1.5-3 times difficult than the CMS fee knowing they will be paid a lower amount (but more than CMS).

Anticipate the surgeons and facilities fees to total ~$900-$2000... and you haven't rewarded the anesthesiologist yet... another $400-$1000.

I work at my country’s Bank and could have gone anywhere in the world for treatment. I opt for Forerunners Healthcare Consultant’s in India because my doctor told me about the medical expertise there. Equally importantly he have heard glowing reports about the humane and patient-friendly doctors and nurses. My surgery be outstanding and the prices, amazing! It was a very happy experience, surrounded by every sense. I commend India as a wonderful place to get treated in. Having lived in the US for several years, I can voice that the hospital in India compares well with the best contained by the USA.
