Insurance and Billing
Associated Endoscopy, LLC accepts most major insurances. As a courtesy to you, we will bill your insurance carrier for you; however we cannot tell you what your policy will cover. Since your insurance policy and coverage is a contract between you and your carrier, we urge you to contact them prior to your procedure. You will be responsible for any co-pays and/or deductibles.
In May 2021, The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force aligned with the American Cancer Society to recommend colorectal cancer screenings begin at age 45 because of an
increase in colon cancer in younger people. All plans covered by the Affordable Care Act will be required to cover CRC screening under the USPSTF recommendation by May 1, 2022. See the accepted insurance list below to see which plans already cover screenings at age 45.

The Cost of Your Procedure
Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.
You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients). Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional health insurance plan.
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) can be a wise way to save money on health insurance and take a proactive role in your healthcare.
Health insurance is an agreement between you and an insurance company of your choosing.
