Stitches Cost

How Much Do Stitches Cost?

average costWith Health Insurance: 10%-50% Coinsurancehigh costWithout Health Insurance: $200-$3,000+

If a cut will not stop bleeding, or is deep enough that fat or other structures can be seen, stitches might be needed to aid healing and reduce scarring.

Typical costs:

  • Stitches typically are covered by health insurance. For patients covered by health insurance, the out-of-pocket cost typically would include a doctor visit or emergency room copay and possibly coinsurance of 10%-50% for the procedure.
  • For patients without health insurance, stitches typically cost $200-$3,000 or more, depending on the provider, the injury and the complexity of the repair. Urgent care centers, which typically charge a flat rate that includes the doctor fee and materials, fall on the lower end of the spectrum, while emergency rooms, which charge separately for the procedure, facility fee, materials and doctor fees, fall on the higher end.
  • For example, Doctors on Demand[1] , an urgent care group in California, charges $150 for repair of a minor laceration, $200 for a moderate laceration and $250 for a serious laceration. Solantic Baptist Urgent Care[2] in Florida charges $239 for a repair of a laceration that requires stitches or adhesive. Playa Vista Medical Center, an urgent care center in California, charges about $266 with a cash discount for a moderately complex repair of a two-inch laceration. Health Quest Family Medicine in Arizona charges $210 for repair of a laceration up to 3 centimeters, $250 for a laceration of 3-6 centimeters and $310 for a laceration longer than 3 centimeters. Salisbury Urgent Care & Injury Center in Maryland charges about $365 for suturing a complex wound. At Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center[3] , laceration repair typically costs $400-$650, depending on complexity, not including doctor fee, which can add hundreds of dollars, or the emergency room fee, which can cost $200-$1,200 or more.
  • According to a recent study[4] done in Washington state, the average emergency room charge for repair of an open wound of a finger was $927; of a hand was $1,063, of a forehead was $1,665 and of a scalp was $1,869. According to the Minnesota Council of Health Plans[5] , a trip to the emergency room for a knife cut to the hand with tendon damage, including the emergency room fee, doctor fee and hospital fee and supplies could total $3,000 or more.

What should be included:
  • The patient typically receives a local anesthetic, and the doctor assesses the wound to determine what type of closure material to use. If using sutures, the doctor might use a special needle pre-loaded with suture filament, and will place the stitches so as to minimize scarring as the wound heals. Adhesive or staples might be used. has an overview[6] of wound closure.
  • If the doctor used dissolvable stitches, they do not need to be removed. However, with standard stitches or staples, the provider will use a special tool to remove them, usually after about five to 10 days.
Additional costs:
  • A Tetanus shot typically costs $30-$70 at an urgent care center or more in an emergency room.
  • In some cases, there is a doctor fee of up to a few hundred dollars to have the stitches or staples removed after the wound has healed. Many urgent care centers and doctors include removal in the original price, but if the stitches were placed in an emergency room it would be necessary to pay another doctor to remove them.
  • Many doctors and hospitals give discounts of up to 30% or more to uninsured/cash-paying patients. For example, Washington Hospital Healthcare System[7] in California offers a 35% discount.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers a locator[8] for clinics that provide discounted care on a sliding scale based on income.
Shopping for stitches:
  • Wounds must be stitched within 12 hours, so it is recommended to go to an emergency room or urgent care center, unless an appointment can be made within that time frame at a family doctor or clinic. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers a hospital-comparison tool[9] that lists hospitals near a chosen zip code, how far away they are and whether they offer emergency services. And offers an urgent care center locator[10] by zip code.

You have to be kidding me. I am assuming the water they used to flush must habe been flown in from Rome after being blessed by the pope. I have heard the saying... Your paying for the education and not the time. I am guessing they meant I am paying for their childrens education too?
I am self insured and plan to get a detailed bill because this is WAY too much. I didn't think it was going to be free and based on how much a gallon of gas or milk cost? Figured I would be getting screwed when they said it would be 6 to 900 dollars. 2 thousand plus? Insane.

I cut my eyelid while working in the garden. I wasn't a deep wound, but there was scaring. Went to the urgent care, and they suggest suturing the wound is better for the eyelid. I had to come back to remove them in a week's time. Aetna had pre-agreed the urgent care amount. Initially I felt, i was charged high for only 4 stitches, but after reading everyone post, i feel it was quite nominal.

My 3 years old split open her eyebrow.we went to pm pediatrics and they told us she need stitches and the doctor said, "He wasn't good at doing stitches but he could try" they charge us $300 for the service,so we went to saint barnabas medical center we ask for a plastic surgeon after the nurses told us she could "try" to stich it. We ask for a doctor of cigma network but they said they had none.the hospital charged us $1369. While we were waiting for the plastic surgeon another doctor came to check on my girl wellbeing at yhis point she was playing with the tablet. That doctor charged us $410. The plastic surgeon finally came 3 hours later and Erwin Bulan did 15 stitches on my little girl eyebrow, in 2 rows. But the outside row he started to stich before the skin was broken and finished way passed, at that point I didn't understand why now I do. CASH he charged $5300.
I am so truly sad that doctor use her skills as business making as much money as they can and no one will protect us.

Medical Center: Sovah Health EDPhysician: Physicians Assistant
I hit my head on a sharp edge while moving furniture causing a small but deep laceration to upper forehead. I got the bleeding stopped with direct pressure but my neighbor convinced me I should get stitches to minimize scarring. I went to ED because it was late and no Urgent Care facilities were open. Received 3 stitches and a Tetanus shot. I was only at the ED for an hour or so with the procedure taking 10 to 15 minutes. Total billed to my insurance:$8704. It was in-network so the bill was reduced to $3080.71. I have a $3000 deductible and insurance covered the remaining $80.73. Totally reasonable. Sadly I thought this was crazy until I read some of these other experiences!

Medical Center: Grand River HealthPhysician:
I received a hand laceration at work, 15 minutes before my shift was over. I was driven there by a salaried member of management of the same sex. They flushed my hand with water to see my wound clearly. I received a shot of Lidocaine, when they did the touch test I still pretty much had full feeling in my hand so they issued another 30 cc’s. They gave me three stitches and the whole time I’m trying not to look. I bled all over the large gauze pads they had under my hand, a part of that was when they flushed my wound. Afterwards I received a tetanus shot and extra bandaging.

Laceration from stick

Posted by: a user in Denver, CO.Posted: April 2nd, 2018 07:04AM
Medical Center: Westminster Kaiser Urgent CarePhysician: ?
Slipped and fell on a stick while running around on a hill, and recieved 2 lacerations on my right leg, one about an inch long and one about 2 inches long. Called my insurance asap (Kaiser) and they directed me to one of their Urgent Cares. They did advise me I could walk into any Urgent Care, but they may not cover all charges. Ended up having to just pay my 25 dollar co-pay, doctor advised I schedule a nurse visit to take them out so I would not have to pay more.
ALWAYS CALL YOUR INSURANCE and have them advise you of Urgent Care/ERs that they cover near you, had I walked into the Urgent Care down the street I would have probably paid multiple times what I did.

The insurance paid less than $600 and I have to pay $315. No sane mind will understand this game of poker. I am unhappy mostly because in the Emergenecy Room I had to wait for 4+ hours before the doctor could come and stich my 3 year old's skin . And this is what they call emergency service.
I wish no one( kids adults) has to ever go to the emergency room . Sugestion to all is Please play safe and avoid blood,pain and the terror of seeing kids in blood.

2cm puncture wound in calf
Amount: $1,100.00
Posted by: Oops in Newport Beach, CA.Posted: September 21st, 2016 09:09AM
Medical Center: Hoag Hospital, NB, CAPhysician: NP
Managed to get a 2cm puncture wound in my calf. It took a couple of hours to get 3 stitches. The wound got infected and opened up again 2 weeks later. (so I ended up with a couple of urgent care visits too). From the ER visit my insurance was originally billed $2000, but the insurance discount brought it down to $1100. I had a $150 ER copay and insurance did the rest. Seeing what others have been charged, I guess this was more reasonable than I had previously thought. However, the stitches were not done very well, so will just go to urgent care next time.
