    Prostate radiation cost in Conn.

    Does anyone have a idea of Medicare "Approved" costs for prostate salvage radiation, bone scan and related ct scans? I believe Medicare pays 80% and the patient 20%, but of what cost? I have not heard from Yale as yet, and am just looking for ball park numbers. Thanks
