The concept of the Procedure Pack is very relevant in this era of managed care. By collecting more items in one pack, the hidden costs will be reduced and the pack will become relatively cheaper than the sum of every item. This paper compares the price of the Procedure Pack with the price of the separate items used for routine phaco-emulsification. The Procedure Pack is 2% more expensive, but the benefits by reducing the hidden costs are substantial and will be analyzed.
