Colonoscopy Direct Access Program
With Direct Access from Memorial Hermann Southwest, you can schedule a colonoscopy directly in 3 steps. No separate physician office visit is required in most cases. Typically, your insurance provider will cover the entire cost of the screening colonoscopy, but it is important that you contact them to understand you individual situation.
Patients will experience top-ranked care as our Center has ranked in the top 5% of the country for Gastrointestinal Care from 2006-2012 and in Gastrointestinal Surgery from 2006-2012.
A screening colonoscopy may be scheduled directly through the endoscopy department as long as the following conditions are met:
This means that a routine colonoscopy may be scheduled without an extra visit to the gastroenterologist (GI). With other programs you are often required to see the GI physician in their office before the colon screening.
