Re: How much does a endoscopy cost?

You're not just looking for cancer, especially the 1st time. You're looking for various causes. The possibility of gastritis, too much bile on an allegedly empty stomach, and the biggie - ulcers. I'm sure there are other things to look for.

Of course, in theory most of these things would be the 1st time. But then, the average recommendation of every 2 years for an endoscope shouldn't be too high a price to pay.

I have a $250 deductible and then pay 10% of the remaining balance. I believe I paid in total $300 out of pocket to include the deductible. It was several years ago. I recently paid about the same for my colonoscopy and I think they cost about the same.

For me I believe it required a $10.00 co pay since it was prescribed by my PCP. Of coarse the insurance payment is another $1,200 per month, but my employer pays the biggest share of that.
