A screening colonoscopy is usually covered 100%% under your insurance preventative benefit. However, while the doctor is performing your screening, he may find a polyp. He may at that time remove the polyp and have it sent for biopsy. While the main colposcopy code should still be covered by your preventive benefit, there may be a portion that the patient may owe for that polyp and/ or biopsy.
EGD (Lower Endoscopy)
An EGD is not covered 100%. Depending on your insurance plan you will be responsible for your deductible co-pay or coinsurance. The portion you are responsible for will be collected at the time of your procedure. Any money collected upfront is only for the surgical facility. You will still receive your bill for anesthesia and doctor.
