What does the $1075 colonoscopy flat rate include?
The $1075 flat rate is truly an all-inclusive rate. It includes all costs related to the procedure. There are no hidden charges or fine print and there is virtually no situation where you could see an additional charge. The price includes:
1) Physician fees
2) Facility fees including nurse costs
3) Sedation/Anesthesia costs
4) Removal of polyps
5) Pathology cost (Lab fees)
6) Reference Pathology cost
Note: Our fee includes the removal and pathology lab fees for an unlimited number of polyps.
This is important as usually the colonoscopy fees does not include pathology costs which sometimes exceeds the cost of the procedure.
What does the $1075 flat rate not include?
1) Consultations. Consultations are
for patients going through the program unless medially
However, if you would like a formal pre-procedure consultation or follow up consultation you will be responsible for charges associated with any consults requested. The program offers a discounted consult at approx $100.
Follow-up consults should not be confused with getting your results. A physician will talk to you prior to and after your procedure to let you know how everything went. This is included in our flat rate.
2) Follow Up Care : Our procedure flat rate only covers the procedure and does not cover follow up treatment after the colonoscopy.
What if I have a lot of polyps or biopsies?
Finding polyps is integral to preventing cancer and
we support the philosophy of finding and testing as many
polyps/biopsies as possible. All polyps are sent to a
lab for testing and our discounted flat rate includes
polyp removal and pathology for any number of polyps found without
restriction. That means they could find 2,3 or
even 12 polyps
and you would not be responsible for any extra cost.
Usually, the cost of pathology is significant. Pathology from just 4 specimens could cost more than the price of the procedure.

You will then receive a copy of your formal report from the program once it is available. A copy of your report is also sent to your primary physician.
Can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for my colonoscopy?
Yes. You will receive a receipt from our program that should be used when filing Form 8889 with your taxes. We highly recommend using your HSA and FSA accounts to pay for your colonoscopy.
How much does a colonoscopy cost on average?
Prices for colonoscopies vary greatly depending on the city and facility you
go to. You have to keep in mind that a colonoscopy results in the patient being
billed by 3-4 different entities. A patient should expect bills from:
- Consultation charge/office visit
- Physician Charge
- Facility fee
- Anesthesia fee
- Pathology fee
Without insurance, a patient should on average expect to pay $2500 - $3000 for a colonoscopy. A considerable savings can be achieved if you schedule through ColonoscopyAssist.
Why is the cost of a colonoscopy significantly lower through the program?
ColonoscopyAssist was founded on the principle that more people will get screened if the procedure is made affordable. The cost of the procedure is kept low through the program to encourage underinsured individuals to get screened. The rate is achieved through physicians and facilities that accept a discounted rate because they believe in the mission of the program. The wonderful physicians that participate in the program are the real ones to thank.
Will the procedure hurt?
Colonoscopies do not hurt. They do make you feel uncomfortable. To make the experience pleasant, we have included sedation / anesthesia costs into the price. You will be comfortable during your procedure.
