Cost Savings Tips and Financial Considerations

Colonoscopy pricing frequently varies by over 300% in many locations. It is not uncommon to find colonoscopy pricing below $1,000 or above $3,000.  You will need to ask about the price of your colonoscopy before you have your procedure and make sure the price covers the physician, facility and anesthesia (if required).

Not all patients require anesthesia for their colonoscopy.  You may want to ask your physician if they use anesthesia and if there are other options like mild sedation.

Fair Price Information

What does the Fair Price mean?

This is Healthcare Bluebook's recommended price for health care services. The Bluebook price is based on the typical fee that providers in your area accept as payment from insurance companies. This is the price you should have to pay, even if your provider charges more. You can use this price to negotiate with your provider or shop for an in-network provider that charges a Fair Price.

How do I find a Fair Price?

If you have health insurance, you should ask the in-network providers listed in your provider directory what the in-network rate is for this service. Different in-network providers often charge different prices. Call several providers to find one that is willing to accept a Fair Price.

If you do not have health insurance coverage, then you should call providers and ask if they offer discounts for self-pay patients and what their price is for the service.
