a scope can detect early cancer and if it does, it can prevent far more costly cancer treatments/surgeries etc plus save the life of the patient....

so its really just as "preventive" (of far worse outcomes) as a blood glucose check would be....taking steps to catch diseases early...

People should just find out for certain, in detail, what their insurance covers, so they won’t be surprised. This requires thinking through what might happen and probably phoning a representative to discuss each potentially billable event.

I had my colonoscopy using a bit of labor breathing and a recorded book on my husband’s iPod. No big deal compared to just about anything else I’ve been through, medically, and I was fully functional ten minutes later.
