For example, a slipped disk is an acute condition that can be expensive to correct at the time of diagnosis.
For the average patient suffering from a slipped disk, costs in the year of diagnosis are very high--around 250 debit points in year 0.
These patients do not completely return to their previous level of expected costs, but stabilize at a level about halfway between the peak costs at year 0 and the expected costs for all other conditions not related to the slipped disk.
