Facility Fees and Coinsurance: What to Expect

When you schedule an appointment with AG, you'll be advised of any facility fees, deductibles or coinsurance payments. These payments are collected prior to procedures at our endoscopy centers.

  • For PPOs, the Center will collect any outstanding deductibles plus the co-insurance for each procedure.
  • For HMOs there will be no facility fee collected unless otherwise stated in your policy.

Texas Senate Bill 1467

Enacted in 2001, Texas Senate Bill 1467 allows many persons age 50 or older to receive a free screening for the detection of colorectal cancer. Individuals whose insurance plan covers this benefit may choose:

  • A fecal occult blood test performed annually and a diagnostic flexible sigmoidoscopy performed every five (5) years, or
  • A screening colonoscopy performed every 10 years.

Senate Bill 1467 does not cover patients with ERISA plans, Medicare, Medicare+Choice, Medicaid, Workers Compensation Products or small employer plans written under Chapter 26 of the Texas Insurance Code. Contact your insurance provider to see if you’re eligible for this free screening.
