Medical Buyout
#2
One component of estimating future medical costs is to review what’s been paid to date.
Ask for a copy of their medical payment record. That will give you some idea of prices.
Next estimate the services you will likely need if you don,t settle e.g your maintenance treatment —that along with the prices will give you an idea of what the carrier expects to pay for the future medical award.
Since you are getting it now in a lump sum rather then over time that amount should be discounted.
Ask your doc or the billing clerk about the cost for the surgery.
The medical fee schedule used for comp treatment is here

Of course the only way to be sure of a fair amount is to keep the med open but there are often disputes that may make that option impractical.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
