As a courtesy, we will file a claim with your insurance company and help in any way to expedite the claim process. However, please remember that patients are ultimately responsible for their account, as an insurance policy is a contract between the patient and his/her insurance provider.
Your doctor’s staff will contact your insurance company to obtain prior authorization if necessary and a description of how your insurance policy will cover your procedure. Then, they will calculate the anticipated costs based on your deductible, coinsurance and/or co-pay. You will receive a call before your procedure from the office staff with the amount of any financial obligation to be paid on the day of your procedure.
Health care is delivered by a team of providers and entities working together. Because of this collaborative structure, multiple providers and/or entities will be billing for your procedure. You and/or your insurance can expect to be billed by your Gastroenterologist for their professional fee, by the facility for the nursing team, equipment, and supplies and by the Anesthesia provider who provides sedation during procedure. If your Gastroenterologist takes any biopsies or removes any tissues such as a polyp, a laboratory will interpret the sample which will be another entity that will submit a bill to your insurance company.
Each of these providers will be happy to discuss your bill with you. Our staff can provide telephone numbers for them or you can call them directly by the phone number they provide on the bill.
