According to a review of health care utilization for pediatric patients with Mitochondrial Disease (MD) in the United States, their costs were similar to that of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). This is based on the total cost allowed per member per month. These figures are $4829 (for MD) vs $202 for the total member population. More information can be found here.
