At Sun Valley Surgical we make cost-effective care a high priority. Many procedures that are performed can be either done in the office or hospital setting. In general, the office setting is much less expensive than the hospital for obvious reasons – overhead, staff, drug and equipment mark-ups, etc. A common example is that many insurance policies do not cover the anesthetic portion of a colonoscopy or EGD in the hospital, leaving the patient to pay several hundred additional dollars on top of the procedure cost.
In most situations we can give you an accurate estimate of what a procedure will cost in the office and enable you to compare for yourself what the procedure would cost in the hospital. We will help you determine what your out-of-pocket cost would be both in the office and in the hospital so that you can make a more rational financial decision.
