Cost Savings Tips and Financial Considerations
Cystoscopy is most often performed in the doctor’s office.
If you receive cystoscopy in an ambulatory surgery center you will pay additional fees for the facility and possibly for anesthesia.
If you are scheduled to have cystoscopy in an ambulatory surgery center, ask your doctor if this is required for your condition, health and specific procedure. If not, then you may be able to decrease your costs by having it performed in the doctor’s office.
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.
