Depending on the type of insurance or other health coverage you have, you may be required to pre-certify with your insurance company. Please discuss pre-certification requirements with your doctor before your procedure is scheduled.
After the endoscopic procedure, you will be transported to the endoscopy recovery area for observation. While you're there, your blood pressure, pulse and respirations will be checked at frequent intervals. A recovery area nurse will be attending your immediate needs and will assist in your discharge from the area.
