Location Considerations for Scheduling a Colonoscopy


Outpatient procedures like colonoscopies are generally performed at either hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs) or outpatient surgery centers.


Benefits to Scheduling a Colonoscopy at a Surgery Center

The average cost for a colonoscopy at a surgery center is often significantly less than a colonoscopy at a hospital. According to Healthcare Bluebook, a colonoscopy with no biopsy averages about $1,600 at a surgery center versus more than $3,000 at a hospital.
