Financial Responsibility and Referrals
Please be aware that patients are responsible to contact their insurance carriers for their individual coverage and benefits. If you have a managed care plan and your insurance requires a Specialist referral, please contact your Primary Care Physician and have a referral in place before your procedure is performed to avoid any additional charges that you may incur. The referral can be faxed to 508-210-5807. If the referral is not in place by date of service the hospital will have you sign a waiver accepting financial responsibility for the procedure. Keep in mind that screening colonoscopies/endoscopies and diagnostic procedures will also differ in insurance co-pays and deductibles. Please note, based on your insurance you may be responsible for additional out of pocket costs for any findings during your screening. Please be sure to contact your insurance company regarding your coverage benefits.
