Payment of co-pays, co-insurance or deductibles will be required when you check in on the day of your procedure. Payments may also be made in advance if it is more convenient for you

A separate bill will be sent from the Advanced Endoscopy Center for the facility charges related to your procedure. PLEASE NOTE: Your physician, anesthesia and the laboratory will bill separately for their services

The Center participates in most of the area’s insurance programs, including Medicare, Medicaid and most HMO and PPO’s. Patients who do not have full insurance coverage should make financial arrangements with our center prior to the date of the procedure. We accept Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover
