Our colonoscopy and cancer SCREENING services are designed to make the procedure affordable, especially for those with no insurance or have a high-deductible plan. We have discounted our prices with the hope that more people will be screened for colon cancer, the second deadliest cancer in the United States.

We also perform DIAGNOSTIC colonoscopies for an AFFORDABLE price, which is different than our screenings, for the common causes: rectal or abdominal pain, rectal or gastrointestinal bleeding, history of polyps or colon cancer, change in bowels or irritable bowel complaints like diarrhea or constipation or history of colitis or inflammatory bowel disease. 

Our colonoscopy procedures cost $1,500, which covers all the costs of the procedure. A colonoscopy performed at a hospital can cost the patient between $2,500 to $5,000.

$2,500 to $5,000

Our price includes:

  • Polyp removal
  • Biopsies
  • Lab costs and fees
  • Sedation and anesthesia
  • Physician, medical staff and facility fees
  • Internal pictures of colon
  • Follow-up sheet recommending repeat colonoscopy
  • Follow-up phone call to discuss results and recommendations

Pre-Procedure Consult

The Colon Rectal Health Center offers a pre-procedure consult as part of the price, a $250 savings. The consult is highly recommended, because it covers the cost of a bowel prep kit, a $200 savings, and is an opportunity to discuss your medical history and get answers from the doctor regarding symptoms and the upcoming procedure, and if a hemorrhoid treatment will be needed.

FREE Phone Pre-Procedure Conversation Alternative

If you are unable to have the pre-procedure consult, you can provide your medical history during a FREE over the phone consult. You will still need to cover the cost of the bowel prep kit through your pharmacy, cost ranging between $125 and $200.

If you’re experiencing rectal bleeding, you may benefit from one of the hemorrhoidal treatments we offer. At the end of your colonoscopy, if we determine that your rectal bleeding is in fact from your hemorrhoids, or you and the doctor have discussed ahead of time in your pre-consult appointment that a treatment is needed, you have the option of having traditional hemorrhoidal treatment, such as rubberband ligation, sclerotherapy or IRC. The cost is $0, a $790 savings.

Financing Available

Finance Assistance When You Need It

Nothing is more important than your health. The earlier you detect colon cancer, for example, the better your chances of survival are. You want and deserve the best medical care, and you shouldn't be kept from it because of a high-deductible health plan, or no insurance at all. Our team will work with you to help you find affordable, sensible financing options to protect your health.

In addition to our discounted and competitive pricing, the Rectal Colon Center of St. Louis also works with financing institutions focused on financing health care needs. We do not endorse one plan over the other. Rather we believe it's important for you to find financing when needed that best meets your needs.

The below are links to the two plans. Visit their sites to see if you qualify and the best plan for you.
