Other Health Plans
In some cases, depending on network agreements between plans and your own coverage, in-network benefits may also be available for the following carriers and plans. It is critical however that you verify the specific details of Digestive Health's relationship with these plans before your care is rendered:
Plans contracted with Digestive Health are also contracted with the Southwest Endoscopy Center, which is a licensed ambulatory surgery center that is required by law to function as an independent entity and bill separately for its services.
Other entities with which we are affiliated or partner with in your care, such as Mercy Regional Medical Center, Southwest Diagnostic Laboratories, PC (our pathologist's private practice located at Mercy Regional Medical Center) and Animas Anesthesia Associates, LLC (our anesthesia provider at the Southwest Endoscopy Center), may not contract with the same plans.
If you have a plan which is not listed above please contact our facility administrator, Ms. Marianne Sloan, with regard to the possibility of initiating contracting discussions with your insurer. It is important to let your insurance company representative know that it does not have a complete network of providers. Insist that they add gastroenterology services for Southwest Colorado to their provider network.
Please call us if you have any questions regarding our insurance plan participation.
