Insurance does cover colonoscopies, especially screening colonoscopies because of the fact that it is such an effective screening tool and it really reduces the risk of cancer in patients. Insurance covers almost all patients above the age of 54, their screening procedures. Now we do do colonoscopies for non-screening procedures with what we call diagnostic procedures and insurance does cover most of those as well. But you should definitely speak to your insurance company and find out exactly what your plan covers before speaking to your physician.
