The authors report that the pricing information provided in “Payer Coverage for Bronchial Thermoplasty: Shifting the Traditional Paradigm for Refractory Asthma Therapy” published in the September 2013 issue of CHEST (Chest. 2013;144(3):1051-1054) was inaccurate.
In the second paragraph in the first column on page 1053, the pricing information for the Alair catheters should have been $2,500, and the price for the Alair system should have been $60,000.
The corrected text now reads:
Additionally the three Alair catheters needed to perform BT cost approximately $2,500 each. Finally, purchase of the Alair system costs close to $60,000.
