Is Bladder Stone Surgery Covered By BPJS?
morning doctor, I want to ask, is the cost of bladder stone surgery for health insurance / free?
Hi Sangpetualang .. Thank you for the question given.
Urinary tract stones can form either in the kidneys, bladder, urinary tract, or in the channel that connects the kidney and bladder. This stone is formed due to mineral deposition in the urinary tract. Symptoms that are often complained of by sufferers of bladder stones are: pain when the BAK, BAK bleeding, difficult BAK, choked BAK, and lower abdominal pain.
If you feel the complaints as mentioned above, and are accompanied by extreme pain, bleeding during BAK that often occurs then it is better for you to see a urologist. So that doctors can perform a physical examination directly and can be followed up with urological ultrasound, X-rays, check urine. From the results of the examination, if the diagnosis of bladder stones is confirmed, laser action can be performed which functions to destroy the stones into smaller shapes, or it can also be through surgery / surgery.
The cost of bladder stone surgery is different for each hospital, but if you have a National Health Insurance / BPJS card then you can use it at the hospital that works with BPJS. Meanwhile, what you can do is: get enough daily water, avoid holding BAK.
