People in Minnesota often wonder what the cost of colonoscopy is before they schedule the procedure. With higher health insurance deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, more patients feel a financial burden to have routine medical exams such as colonoscopy, and they are looking for the affordable options.
Traditionally, colonoscopy is performed in a hospital setting. In the past decade, more colonoscopies are performed in an ambulatory setting, which is less expensive than having the procedure done in a hospital setting. The patients usually receive two bills; one for the physician fee and one for the facility fee. The most afforable colonoscopy is usually performed in a clinic, where the physician fee is charged without the facility fee.
One Stop Medical Center provides the affordable routine colonoscopy Edina, MN. We charge the physician fee only (estimated $1100) and we also offer a 20% discount to self-pay patients. We are unable to guarantee the exact dollar amount of your individual procedure. Biopsy and/or polyp removal will increase the cost of colonoscopy.
This price includes the sedation used during colonoscopy, but it does not include the biopsy or polypectomy (polyp removal) or fees from the pathologist (physician who examines biopsied specimen).
Most health insurance plans cover over colonoscopy exams. Because coverage varies, you should check with your insurer to determine your coverage and out-of-pocket costs.
