Insurance and Billing

Central Coast Endoscopy Centers accept 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 due the day of the procedure.

You will receive an easy to understand, all-inclusive bill for the services provided at Central Coast Endoscopy Centers. You can also expect a bill from your physician.

We offer the option to pay bills online. Pay online using our secure server here.

If you have questions regarding insurance prior to your appointment or procedure, please call Endoscopy Center of the Central Coast at (888) 711-4041 or Templeton Endoscopy Center at (805) 468-4808.

The Cost of Your Procedure

Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.

You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients).  Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
