Health Care System Factors

The combined direct and indirect cost of Parkinson's in the U.S. is estimated to be nearly $25 billion each year. Much of this cost is for medications, which cost as average of $2,500 per year. Therapeutic surgery is another large expense and can cost up to $100,000 per person. Source: [http://www.parkinson.org/Understanding-Parkinsons/Causes-and-Statistics/Statistics]
