Fee Schedule

The fees posted on this page are in effect on January 1, 2018.  These are the direct pay prices that are charged prior to negotiated discounts (as are typically applied by a contracted insurance company or in the case of an uninsured patient, may be offered by the practice for a cash payment at the time of service).

Contact your insurance company directly (many companies provide web-based charge estimators) to determine your contracted discount and anticipated out-of-pocket liability, which is affected by your deductible and copay arrangements.  In most cases, patients having screening procedures (such as screening colonoscopy), are exempt from out-of-pocket deductible and copay obligations.
