The total cost of your procedure could be comprised four different provider fees to include: Yuma Endoscopy Center (facility fee), The Physician (professional) fee, the anesthesia fee, and the pathologist's fee (if a biopsy is performed.) Each provider bills their services separately.
Desert Sedation Services LLC (Anesthesia Fee):
Covers the cost of providing anesthesia for your procedure. Once your insurance company has processed your claim you will be billed for any remaining balance with a maximum out of pocket expense of $250. Desert Sedation Services is not a contracted provider for any commercial insurance companies. As a result you will receive an explanation of benefits (EOB) and possibly a check from your insurance company for anesthesia services rendered. You are responsible to bring a copy of your EOB to the office. If you have any questions regarding your bill from Desert Sedation Services please call their billing department at (888) 610-2455
Yuma Gastro Path (Pathology Fee):
is for services by the pathologist for review and interpretation of the tissues of any biopsies and polyps removed during your procedure. Unless instructed otherwise, your specimen will be processed by Yuma Gastro's pathologist. If a different laboratory is preferred please inform us at the time of services. For questions regarding your pathology bill, please call Yuma Gastro's Bill at 928-248-5312
