I own a company that places PICC lines in central Texas (PICC Associates of Central Texas) we have a full staff of certified Registered Nurses that place these lines in patients in rural hospital settings. The cost is approximately $700 and that includes our supplies and the serivces of the RN. Although, this sounds like a lot of $ in comparison to staying in the hospital it is nothing.

What is a PICC line?

A PICC line is a thin hallow tube, kind of like an IV line, that is placed near your elbow and threaded into a large vein that leads into your heart. PICC lines are used on people who need more some long term medicines or people, like me, who use it to get nutrition. PICC lines are inserted in radiology and do not hurt very much. PICC lines are not permant but can stay in for a decent amount of time, that time is based on your condition and your doctor. If you need a PICC line don't be scared. They don't hurt and if you treat it well and keep it sterile it won't get infected. BUT the biggest thing that you need to do is make sure not to get it wet, because then it will become infected.
