Northshore Center for Gastroenterology participates in most insurance plans and we will file your insurance claim for you. To ensure accurate billing, you will be asked for current insurance information each time that you check in for an appointment. Please let our receptionist know if you have had any changes to your insurance or personal information

When you have an outpatient procedure, such as a colonoscopy or endoscopy, you will receive more than one bill. One statement will be from the NSG physician who performed your exam or procedure. You will also receive a second, separate statement from either the Winchester Endoscopy, LLC or from the hospital where the procedure was performed. Finally, if lab work or a biopsy was required, you may receive additional bills for those services as well.

If you are scheduled to have a screening colonoscopy, you may wish to verify your insurance coverage for both screening and diagnostic procedures, before scheduling your appointment. This may change your coverage and/or out-of-pocket expenses resulting from your procedure.

*These products may require a referral from your primary care physician.¬† Please contact your primary physician’s referral department for the appropriate documentation.
