You will receive one bill from the center for use of the outpatient facility, nursing services and all medications and equipment required during your endoscopic procedure. This bill is separate from the medical services provided by your gastroenterologist. You may also receive separate bills for pathology, lab and anesthesia services when applicable. Payments must be made to each entity separately.
Endoscopy Center of Marin participates in Medicare programs, as well as most commercial insurance plans. As with all insurance companies, verification of coverage is not a guarantee of payment. You will need to confirm your insurance carrier’s facility, lab and referral/pre-certification requirements prior to your procedure in order to receive the maximum benefit. You must notify our billing office of any changes in your coverage before your procedure date.

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.
