The Dubuque Endoscopy Center accepts most major insurances. As a courtesy to you, we will bill your insurance carrier for you; however, we cannot tell you what your policy will cover. Since your insurance policy and coverage is between you and your carrier, we urge you to contact them prior to your procedure. You will be responsible for any co-pays and/or deductibles. The Dubuque Endoscopy Center accepts cash, check or credit card (Mastercard and VISA only).
It is very important that you ask your insurance company the following questions about the benefits for your specific group plan.
Ask if both Dubuque Endoscopy Center and Grand River Medical Group are participating providers with your insurance plan. If not, your insurance may not pay.
Dubuque Endoscopy Center is an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Dubuque Endoscopy Center will charge a facility charge and Grand River Medical Group will charge for the physician’s services. There may also be a charge from Pathology Associates for tissue pathology.
