Costs of neurogenic bladder vary widely and depend on a number of factors including severity of disease, symptomatology, patient insurance, and devices required. Recognition of how each treatment strategy will impact the patient financially could help guide selection of treatment as well as improve compliance with the chosen regimen. We have attempted to provide an overview of long-term cost considerations for the neurogenic bladder patient. Armed with this information, the practitioner can better help the patient select a bladder care regimen that balances the desire to both minimize symptoms now and preserve urinary tract integrity for the future, yet still remain cost-effective.
