SCOD has developed a program which allows healthy individuals to schedule a screening colonscopy without the need for an office visit before the procedure. If you are NOT SYMPTOMATIC and your physician has suggested you have a colonoscopy (or you are 45 and never had a colonoscopy), you may qualify for this program. If you are having GI symptoms/problems, your insurance will not classify this as a screening and you will need to be seen in a GI doctor's office prior to a colonoscopy. Of course, not all patients will be able to SAFELY undergo a colonoscopy without a more detailed evaluation of their health history and their risks for the procedure. If that is the case for you, we will help point you in the right direction to be assessed and determine how to best meet your health needs.
