Colon Polyps & Cancer
For Your Visit
The cost to you for the colonoscopy will depend upon your insurance coverage. As a rule, for patients with HMO insurance, your cost will include only your co-payment. For patients with PPO insurance, your cost could vary widely depending upon the type of PPO insurance plan. You should fully understand what costs your insurance plan will cover and what costs are your responsibility. Please contact your insurance carrier and inquire about the coverage that will be provided for all of the services for your colonoscopy.
For individuals that do not have health insurance or coverage for a colonoscopy on their health plan, the Colonoscopy Center for Excellence will work with you to craft an affordable payment method.
