Use first and last .visit instead of first and last .id.
When you do so, you will get one cost record per id visit
Note that it is quite simple to use a Proc SUMMARY to compute sums.
Additionally, if you are only reporting the sums, consider using Proc
REPORT or TABULATE.
Here are two different steps that do the same thing:
data new (drop=cost);
by id visit;
if first.visit then do;
if last.visit then output;
data new2 (drop=cost);
do until (last.visit);
by id visit;
