Insurance and Billing
River Oaks Endoscopy offers substantial cost savings to patients and insurance carriers. While we are prepared to file a claim for insurance benefits, we urge patients to review their insurance contracts. Your insurance deductible, co-pay, co-insurance or out-of-pocket payment is collected upon arrival. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, all major credit cards and Care Credit. Care Credit is a convenient, monthly payment program for yourself and your family specifically designed to pay for healthcare expenses not covered by insurance, including co-payments, deductibles and elective treatment, and care. For more information about Care Credit payment plans, go to www.carecredit.com.

The Cost of Your Procedure
Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.
You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients). Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional health insurance plan.
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) can be a wise way to save money on health insurance and take a proactive role in your healthcare.
Health insurance is an agreement between you and an insurance company of your choosing.
