How Much Do Autopsies Usually Cost?
Autopsies are not covered under Medicare, Medicaid, or most insurance plans, though some hospitals — teaching hospitals in particular — do not charge for autopsies of individuals who passed away in the facility. A private autopsy by an outside expert can cost between $3,000 and $5,000.

  2. Clinical autopsy.
  3. Academic Autopsy.

How Long After Death Can an Autopsy Be Done?
As long as the body exists, it can be autopsied. A pathologist can obtain much more information from a freshly deceased body, and hospital-based autopsies are usually performed within 24 hours of a person’s death to minimize the effects of decomposition.
