Our expert opinion on colonoscopy reimbursement
Colonoscopy makes it possible to observe the interior of part of the intestines and, if necessary, to carry out a biopsy or a particular treatment. This examination also makes it possible to prevent various colon-related diseases such as Crohn’s disease or colorectal cancer.
Generally, a colonoscopy is performed under general or light anesthesia and therefore requires a visit to the anesthetist beforehand.
As a reference examination for cancer screening and as part of the fight against colorectal cancer, the National Health Insurance partly covers colonoscopy. If you want to be proactive, also know that colorectal cancer screening kits exist, fully reimbursed.
What reimbursement for colonoscopy by Social Security?
Depending on the clinic where you go for your colonoscopy, you may be billed for excess fees, not covered by health insurance.
Fortunately, most mutuals take care of excess fees related to a colonoscopy. With good health insurance, it won’t cost you anything!
What reimbursement for colonoscopy by mutual health insurance?
To supplement Social Security reimbursements, many people choose to take out good health insurance. This will compensate you for all or part (depending on the contract taken out) of the remaining charge.
Complementary health insurance has two ways of expressing the amount of your reimbursement: as a flat rate or as a percentage. In the case of the package, your mutual health insurance grants you a fixed sum to spend every year. In the case of the percentage, your mutual reimburse you according to a percentage of the Social Security reimbursement base. The higher this percentage, the better your refund will be.
